Frequently Asked Questions
Who makes the jewelry on this site?
All jewelry items are designed and handcrafted by me, Daniell Hudson, in my studio in Brooklyn, NY.
Where are materials sourced?
I use NYC based casters, platers, and stone setters. I use ethically sourced, conflict-free stones and recycled material to the best of my knowledge and purchase my metal from trusted local vendors. For questions concerning any particular piece, please feel free to contact me.
Should I be concerned about nickel in the jewelry?
ll jewelry on this site is nickel-free aside from white gold items. All pieces that involve constant, direct skin contact (earring posts and rings) are made of silver or nickel-free gold. Many people do not develop a reaction to the loose contact of necklaces and bangles made of white gold alloyed with nickel, but if your skin is sensitive then silver or nickel-free gold are the safest options.
Are there any other metal sensitivities I should be concerned about?
Nickel is the most common metal people are allergic to. In very rare cases people are sensitive to silver. Allergies to gold are even more rare, but it can occur.
Some people have sensitivity to brass, which can temporarily discolor the skin. Therefore, all pieces that involve constant, direct skin contact (earring posts and rings) are all made of silver or nickel-free gold. Many people do not develop a reaction to the loose contact of necklaces and bangles made of brass, but if your skin is sensitive then silver or a higher karat gold are the safest options.
If you have a sensitivity to a particular metal and are interested in an item made of that metal in my shop, you can contact me directly to request a custom order that is right for you.
Do you take special requests/custom-made orders?
I am happy to make custom pieces upon request, please contact me for more information.
