Care & Installation
Each piece of Makers Hardware is made by hand for tis reason please allow for some organic variation between pieces. Each piece of brass hardware is sealed with a clear finish that protects from tarnishing. All brass will eventually tarnish over time due to oxidation but the coating will keep it shining for much longer than if left untreated. Please do not use solvents or commercial cleaning solutions on them as that may affect the coating. If cleaning is necessary mild soap and water is suggested or a jewelry polishing cloth. If you prefer for your brass to naturally darken and patina over time as it ages, please let me know at checkout and I will skip the coating step on your piece.

Each piece of brass hardware is sealed with a clear finish that protects the piece from tarnishing. Due to oxidation one of the natural tendencies of brass is to tarnish over time however the coating we apply to our pieces will keep them shining for much longer. Please refrain from using solvents or commercial cleaning solutions on the hardware. If cleaning is necessary, mild soap and water or a jewelry polishing cloth will do the trick.
