Brass Gum Leaf Earrings
Nothing says Australia like a classic gum leaf
* light weight laser cut brass charms paired with gold plated hooks
* exclusive design created by Pixie Nut
* versatile with any look and can be dressed up or down
* packaged with natural, biodegradable materials
* Do not wear in the shower or swimming as salt water, chemicals and chlorine are harmful to metals
* To clean, use a soft damp cloth, dry microfibre cloth or metal polishing cloth
* Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc and like most metals it will oxidise over time causing tarnishing. This is a natural quality of the metal, many people like this look but if you want to make it shiny again there are several household products you can use such as soapy water, vinegar, lemon juice and baking soda and even ketchup! Be sure to wash these products off after using. Something more aggressive like Brasso will help remove scratches.
* If you want to slow the oxidisation process; avoid excessive handing, clean with a soft cloth after wearing and store in a sealed container.
