Frequently Asked Questions
How do I clean my Carly Wright jewelry?
The enamel can be cleaned with dish soap and a toothbrush. You can brighten the silver with toothpaste using a circular motion.
Do you do special orders?
Yes! To cover the extra time of discussing a unique colorway and/or sending photos back and forth for approval, there will be a charge of $25-$40. for special orders. Generally, special orders are not eligible for return or exchange. If all of the design options are settled during a discussion at a show, the artist may waive the special order charge.
Do you sell gift certificates?
Yes! You can purchase gift cards under the “Shop” menu.
Can I hurt the enamel if I wear it in the shower or pool?
No, it is very durable and vitreous in nature, like the glaze on a piece of pottery.
Is it possible to replace a single lost earring?
Yes, I can usually do that! The cost is 50% of a whole pair, plus a $10. special order charge. If a new mold needs to be made, this only applies to styles for long ago, this will add an extra $25. to the cost. You can send the single back to me or take a photo in natural light on a neutral background and email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What metal are the ear wires and ear posts made of?
The ear wires are sterling silver that has been oxidized to match the piece. The ear posts are surgical steel. I can do a pair with white gold posts or wires on request.
Are the chains that you use made of sterling silver?
Yes, they are oxidized to match the piece.
Why is the enamel not shiny?
I etch the enamel with an acid to matte the finish.
Do you teach the art of enameling?
Not currently, but I am considering having some small classes in my studio. Let me know if you are interested!
Can I get a particular style in a different color palette than the pair shown on the website?
Yes! I make all of the production pieces in 6-8 different color ways.
How can I find out what is on sale?
I regularly post closeout items on the “Sale” page , but it is always a good idea to get on my mailing list, That way you won’t miss any bargains! Also check in at my Facebook business page.
Can the pins be worn as pendants?
Yes, most of them can. I sell pendant converters for this purpose. For a more permanent solution, it is also possible to solder a loop on the back of the piece to convert it to a pendant.
