Where do you acquire the bones for the pieces?
We get our animal bones and parts from sources like Paxton's Gate, natural history museum stores, and other various places. We always make sure they were ethically sourced and are from naturally deceased animals. We only use one of the bones/skulls/series of claws and make a mold from it to do all of our castings. The mold is injected with wax and then we use those in the "lost wax" casting process. There isn't actually a bone in our finished product, it's all sterling silver.
How long does it take to receive my piece(s)?
It usually takes us about 1-2 weeks before we can ship out your own personal Birds N Bones pieces, plus shipping time specified during check out. We handcraft each piece as our orders come in and finish to your liking. Let us know if you want to put a "rush" on your order for an additional charge.
It could take an additional 2-3 weeks if you choose a piece with flush set stones.
Where do you ship and how much does it cost?
We ship all around the world, but some restrictions do apply for countries with importation laws on precious stones and other fine jewelry. We are not responsible for any duty fees on packages and items.

Caring for you Birds N Bones Jewelry.
All of our pieces are made with 100% sterling silver (some select pieces made with bronze/brass accents), and ethically sourced gemstones. There are several ways to clean your piece:
1) Silver polishing cloth.(recommended for any pieces with stones)
2) Warm water and baking soda. Gently scrub your piece and rinse clean. Thoroughly dry jewelry with a clean cloth or lightly use a blow dryer.(not recommend for pieces with stones)
Please note, patina or product surface finish may slightly vary after cleaning.
3) Feel free to email us and we will send you a label to send your piece in for a professional cleaning and re-finish touch up in our studio for a small fee.
*shipping fees may apply
Please DO NOT use liquid jewelry cleaner on our products. This type of cleaner will strip away the beautiful patina finish we apply to all our pieces.
Please note that brass can get its own patina and can discolor with wear.

What is the difference between matte and polish finish?
A matte finish is a clean surface with a dull appearance, allowing all the wonderful details from our cast pieces to show clearly. A polished finish is tumbled for several hours until the piece is smooth and has a very shiny, almost reflective surface.
