I saw a nice jewel, it is not on the website any more, what can I do?
Send us a message stating the model and color you are looking for. There is a good chance we have another similar piece. Usually we make small runs of a color, and we have never all available colors shown online. It may take a few days if the enameled part is in stock but the flower not assembled. But in this case you can influence the color combination (ex. which color of petals and stamina to put on a rose with the color of petals you looked for).
What is the delivery time for custom orders?
It takes 4-6 weeks to make custom parts.

How does the bolotie work?
On our jewels, the bolo cord can be put from behind. Jewels come with a pictured notice explaining how to proceed. Once the cord is ut you can adjust the jewel to desired height.
How do I choose a bolo cord?
This is a matter of your size, and how far you want to slide the bolo down. 90 cm fits most people but for tall people or if you want to slide the bolo down 1 m will be better.
What is a piece unique?

Are there any risks of allergies with enameled jewelry?
The main parts of our jewelry consist of copper and fire enamel. Copper is a regular micronutrient that we absorb every day. There are only extremely rare cases of copper allergies. Fire enamel is similar to Bohemian crystal. Exactly as the latter fire enamel is safe in contact with skin.
All metal parts are nickel-free or stainless steel (stainless steel contains nickel but does not liberate any nickel, and is perfectly safe for persons with nickel allergy. Largely veryfied by Reinhard who is allergic to nickel!). Plastic parts such as our bolo locks are made from a material designed for making glasses frames. This material is hypoalllergic and perfecly safe for permanent skin contact.
