Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of wire is used? -
All wire-wrapped pieces use 14K gold filled or sterling silver wire and components. Gold filed wire is not electroplated or dipped. It is 14K gold drawn out and filled with a small non-allergic metal to provide durability. All but the most severely allergic individuals can wear this metal with no reaction because the gold layers are thick. It will wear as well as 14K gold and never change color.
How do Rachel's pieces differ from most wire wrapped work? -
Rachel's trademark is the use of genuine Swarovski crystals, seed beads, and semi-precious stones in the earring and pendant designs.
Can the earrings be worn on either ear? -
All earrings are mirror images of each other and can be worn on either ear.
What are the materials in the center of the earring? -
