Some parts of my jewels are matt! why?
The shiny stuff on your porcelain piece is glaze. Melted glass. The pieces are baked in a kiln with high temperatures on a big stone. For preventing the pieces to melt stuck on the stone, one side has to be clear of glaze. This will be matt. Off course I make sure you don't see this while wearing. Porcelain shrinks 16% and because of the arch in the croissants I can't fire them hanging.
How to take care of gilded products?
Gilded means a thin layer of gold that covers metal. Atelier Vanrosa uses high quality gilded necklaces. You still need to take good care of your purchase. Don't leave it in moist rooms like the bathroom, don't use perfume or bodylotion on the spot you wear your jewelry an take it of before swimming or showering! This way u enjoy it much longer. The PH of your skin is something that can also influence the gold layer. When not wearing them keep them safe from scratches and breaking.
Are all the dishes food safe?
Yes, except the ones with the mother of pearl overglaze. you can put dry foods in them but no food with moisture.
Are the dishes and plates dishwasher, microwave and oven safe?
All the pieces are dishwashersafe but I recommend washing them by hand. Mother of pearl and gold can fade in time while using the dishwasher. Pieces with gold are not microwave and oven safe.
How can I remove heavy stains from the unglazed parts?
Try rubbing some baking soda with a soft toothbrush on it.
Why are there differences between 2 of the same products?
Due the handmade nature of the products no pieces are the same. Different tones in color and characteristic imperfections are in the nature of the materials and production process. I think that's the beauty of it!
The color of my ordered product differs from the same product online, why?
The color you see online is different on every monitor. I try to make the photo's as true as possible but small variations in color tone are possible. The colors of the glaze are mixed by me and sometimes they turn out lighter or darker then usual. It's all handmade!
Why is the product I received not signed?
Most of my jewelry is not signed because of the size.
