Each piece is one of a kind, designed by me, and carefully crafted by hand. Due to the handmade nature of my goods, please allow for slight imperfections. Patterns will vary naturally by design, so no two pieces are exactly alike. They are different on purpose; made to be unique, just like you.
Queen Mama materials are high quality and curated from small businesses. Some materials you will often find in my designs are: polymer clay, resin, turquoise, gold leaf, raw brass and electric gold plated brass. Some earring posts are gold plated brass, but I mostly use nickel free stainless steel posts, and 24K gold vermeil ear wires and hoops which are hypoallergenic. Please see individual product descriptions.
Polymer Clay is durable but not unbreakable. Please handle with care, DO NOT BEND or manipulate, store away from excessive heat and follow these guidelines to increase the longevity of your pieces.
AVOID smudges from lotions, perfumes and sprays.
WIPE clean with a soft non-abrasive cloth, like microfiber.
REMOVE dirt from clay and resin with a q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol (or warm water with mild dish detergent).
POLISH raw brass and gold plated components as needed with a jewelry polishing compound and cloth. I suggest Renaissance Wax.
Do NOT submerge in water or other liquids.
Do NOT apply harsh chemicals, like solvents or acetone.
