FAQs

How heavy are the earrings?

Polymer clay is extremely lightweight! The heaviest pair of our earrings weighs less than .2 ounces (about the weight of one US nickel). 

Can I wear my jewelry in the shower?

Although polymer clay itself is water resistant, to extend the life of your jewelry you should avoid wearing your earrings in the shower or bath, in a pool, ocean, or lake, or around water-based chemicals. The majority of our metals are resistant to tarnishing, however sterling silver will tarnish if exposed to too much water or moisture.

How can I clean my jewelry?

Your polymer clay jewelry is lightweight, flexible, and perfect for everyday wear. However please take care when handling it as you would any other delicate item and follow these tips to extend the life of your jewelry. To clean your items, dip a Q-tip in rubbing alcohol and gently wipe it over make-up, dirt, or lint to remove. Store items in a dry location away from moisture and humidity. Although polymer clay is flexible, refrain from excessively bending your pieces. If tarnishing occurs on sterling silver necklace chains, gently wipe with a polishing cloth or soap and water. All other metals require only a quick wipe with a soft cloth.

I have sensitive ears. Are your earrings ok for me?

Yes! Nickel is the most common metal allergy, and all of our metal components (posts, hoops, ear wires, push backs, jump rings, and necklace chains) are completely nickel-free. If you are looking for a specific metal such as titanium, argentium silver, 14K gold-filled, or sterling silver, please read the "materials" section of each listing to see which metal is used for that specific earring. You can read more about the materials we use here.

I found an item that I want but it is sold out! What should I do?

How can I win free earrings?

So glad you asked! We have two ongoing giveaways that we'd love you to take part in. First, share a photo of your new Olim Clay Co. jewelry by tagging @olimclayco on Instagram or Facebook! You can choose to wear the jewelry in your photo, or simply take a photo of the jewelry itself. Each month we will randomly select one person who shared a photo to win the item of their choice from the shop! Please note that if your social media account is "private" we may not be able to see your photos even if you have tagged us. Send us a message via Instagram or Facebook with the photo so we can see it and include you in that month's giveaway.

Then, share your own nature photos with us! If you have a favorite photo of the outdoors with unique shapes, colors, or patterns, send it our way via e-mail to olimclayco@gmail.com. If your photo is selected to inspire a new collection we will send you an item from that collection for free. Please only submit photos that you have taken or ones that you have permission to share. Include your name, photo location, and what you love about the photo! You can read more about how we use photography to inspire our jewelry designs here.
