Who is Mila Sol?
Mila Sol is the name of one of the smartest, funniest, most adorable little girls in the world and also the daughter of a long time friend of mine. She is always in my thoughts when I am away from home and I couldn't think of a better way to show her how much she means to me than to name my business after her. I know she'll grow up to be an insightful, creative, positive force and an inspiration to everyone around her.
Can you tell me about your process and materials?
Sure! All of the jewelry is made by me, with care and a focus on quality and craftsmanship at my studio in Providence, Rhode Island. My designs and models are often created during my travels. I mainly work with sterling silver. Sterling silver is 92.5% pure silver; the rest is copper, which is added to strengthen the metal. Tarnish is a naturally occurring reaction and all sterling silver will need to be cleaned periodically.
How do I care for my jewelry?
Be kind to your jewelry. Don't store it in places that are high in moisture (like your bathroom) and avoid touching it after you've just lathered yourself in lotion. Be sure to remove it before showering, swimming, or working out and keep it in a box or jewelry pouch when you are not wearing it. Do not wash jewelry that has been oxidized as this could remove the patina. Simply wipe it with a clean, soft cloth. For routine care, I like to clean my sterling silver and brass with warm water and mild soap on a toothbrush. Just give it a scrub, dry completely with a soft towel, wear, and enjoy! If you are going after some heavy tarnish, making a baking soda and water mixture should do the trick. Just watch out for stones and oxidized areas! If you have any questions about your jewelry, don't hesitate to contact the studio.
