do you do custom work?
Miranda accepts select commissions throughout the year, when her production schedule allows. If you are interested in comissioning a piece, please contact Miranda to discuss the details.
what materials do you use?
Miranda's jewellery is made predominantly from sterling silver, with the occasional use of copper, brass, gold, gemstones, found objects and natural materials.
how do i care for one of your pieces?
The best way to maintain the finish of your piece, and to prevent tarnishing is to wear it. When not being worn, store the piece in an airtight container (i.e. ziploc) in order to slow the oxidization process. Below you will find directions for cleaning the various finishes that Miranda utilizes:
Polished Finish: Clean with any polish or cloth that is intended for sterling silver.
Brushed Finish: Using a kitchen scouring pad or fine sandpaper (400 or 600 grit), rub with the grain of the metal to remove any tarnish from your piece.
Oxidized Finish: These pieces do not require cleaning or polishing, however please keep in mind that the dark patina will lighten with time and any rubbing or polishing will speed up this process.
Do not hesitate to contact Miranda if you are uncertain about how to clean a particular piece or, if you would prefer, Miranda will happily clean your piece for free, providing that you cover the cost of shipping to and from the studio.
