“Where do you buy your beads?”
“Is ___ available?”
”Will there be more than one of these available?”The vast majority of the pieces I make are one of a kind. Occasionally, I may remake earrings or simple necklaces but within drops themselves I’ll usually only have one of everything available.
“Do you ship to ___ ?”
“Are your earrings nickel free?”
My earring hooks are 304 stainless steel which is tarnish-resistant and generally a good option for sensitive ears. Their nickel content is approximately 8%, but due to their slow nickel release rate in compliance with EU regulations, they are unlikely to cause problems for most people. However, if you know you have problems with stainless steel earrings, or have a severe nickel allergy, then they might not be suitable for you. You can always switch out the hooks yourself too!
How heavy are your earrings?
It depends on the pair of earrings! Most of my earrings will not exceed 5 or 6g per earring (10 to 12g per pair), even those with more ‘cluttered elements’, and this is fairly wearable for most people. I usually make a note of the weight in the description so you can make an informed purchase :) If you’re ever curious about a pair of earrings, just send me a message! Everyone can tolerate different weights, so it might be useful to compare the weight of my earrings to that of a heavier pair you already own to identify your personal limit.
