How They’re Made
There are two types of materials used in this collection, wood and metal. The foodstuffs charms and pendants are comprised of metal. How do we make these? It all starts with artfully handcrafting tiny miniatures. The coffee was hammered out of silver wire and then cast into pewter from a master mold. The rest of the junk food were first sculpted with clay and then cast into pewter. What a fun process! Once the castings come out of the mold, they are hand patina’d with a “wash” of color! The signature patina paint is specially formulated to adhere to metal, finishing with an awesome pop of color.
The music, gaming and sneaker charms are comprised of baltic birch wood. How do we make these? It starts with original hand-drawn sketches by our team of artists. The images are then laser etched on the wood. Once the etching is complete, the pieces are hand painted with a wash of color! This is natural patina finish, if you want to seal it in it’s current state use ice resin as a sealant. Otherwise the patina paint fades naturally overtime as it soaks deeper into the wood. Every charm hole has a metal rivet for additional security.
