FAQs for NEAL's Objects Collection:

1) What are the Objects made out of? 

- Yellow Bronze. They are hand molded in wax & cast. Each piece is finished individually by hand. 

2) What is the black stuff?

- It is a patina that oxidizes the bronze and blackens it in color. It is then treated with a crystalline wax to protect & preserve the patina.

3) Is the black permanent?

- If the bowls remain untouched by objects placed in them; then yes. If the bowls are used to store loose coin change, jewelry, keys, etc... the patina will, over the years, slightly brighten & burnish by the metal on metal contact. This burnishing/brightening looks really cool and lends itself to the uniqueness of the piece. 

4) WIll the objects tarnish?

- Yes. Over time, the pieces will develop a patina unique to it's owner and use. This is a natural, beautiful process. If you would like to shine your pieces up from time to time, you can polish them using an all natural baking soda/water/lemon paste and a soft cloth. Be sure to avoid getting this solution on the blackened parts. 

5) Is it safe to use the bowls for food?

- NO. 

Please allow 7-10 days for shipping.

Founder and designer Lauren Neal has been creating her own collections and custom work since 2009, with these principles kindly and firmly in mind. Every piece in her line is produced by hand, with integrity. Lauren uses both ancient and modern techniques to hand-carve her original designs in wax before casting them in the most sustainable metals possible. She focuses on quality, detail, and form because I know the pieces of jewelry you connect with will become part of your permanent collection. NEAL (formerly Carrier Pigeon Jewelry) has been featured in Bust and Lucky magazines, and was named Best Jewelry Design in the Twin Cities. All NEAL jewelry is thoughtfully and carefully made by hand in her sunlight-filled studio in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
