Our newest jewellery designs are perfect for the changing seasons. The ‘Symbols’ collection has been inspired by ancient motifs, hand crafted using traditional sand casting methods in Kenya using recycled gold-tone brass. Taking influences from African, Indian and Middle Eastern art, stand out pieces in the collection include our ‘Eye’ bracelet, ‘Paisley’ charm necklace and ‘Beauty Comb’ mobile earrings.
This cool Comb Short Charm Necklace is made with ethical hand-cast gold tone brass, polished to a radiant finish. Can be paired with Comb Hoop earrings for a matching set.
Please note, the short and the long necklace are sold separately.

After several uses our recycled brass jewellery will start to tarnish slightly. Some prefer the brass when it becomes darker and more earthy. However you may prefer to restore your jewellery to its original polished gold tone.
The best way to polish your jewellery is to use a brass polish, we suggest Brasso (Always follow the instructions on the bottle). If you don't have any brass polish to hand, or prefer a more natural alternative, cover half a lemon in salt and rub over your jewellery until you see the tarnish start to lift, rinse well and polish dry with a soft cloth.
Avoid prolonged contact with liquids and never spray with perfumes as this will cause the brass to tarnish quicker.
