Ava Necklace

Regular price $32.00

The Ava Necklace tells a powerful story of fresh beginnings. This ethically handmade necklace was designed to teach young women introductory jewelry making skills, as they begin their path to true freedom. Part of our Hammered collection, we love this necklace paired with our prima cuff and necklace and our horizon or prima earrings. 

Since it is a training piece, each new Ava Necklace signifies the arrival of new women in our Sanctuaries. When you shop the Ava Necklace today, you are supporting their hopes, dreams and aspirations, as they work to rebuild their lives. 

Included with your purchase of the brass Ava Necklace will be a polishing cloth and instructions on how to keep your jewelry clean, dry, and polished. We love working with brass because it can be polished to shine–due to the nature of brass being just itself. Brass, when polished, can be a beautiful replacement for 14k gold jewelry.

    PURPOSE Jewelry Care Guide:

    Important Jewelry Care Note: Polishing your gold or silver plated jewelry will remove the plating from the piece. Only use a polishing cloth for your pieces that are 100% brass and are not plated.

    How to care for plated jewelry

    Plated jewelry is identical to a piece that would be entirely made up of a precious metal but does require more care to allow for the piece to not lose its plating. 

    • Apply perfume, hairspray or deodorant before wearing your jewelry as certain chemicals may damage the finish.
    • Always remove your jewelry before swimming, bathing, doing household chores or using abrasive cleaners.
    • If your jewelry requires further cleaning, use mild soap, water and a soft cloth. Rinse with clean water and pat dry.
    • Make sure your jewelry is completely dry before storing.
    • To avoid black markings on your skin or the jewelry, be sure to regularly clean.
