Ashley Buchanan individually hand-cuts most of her jewelry from brass sheet metal using a traditional jeweler’s saw and has recently introduced the process of water-jet cutting for some of her new work. She applies color using an industrial process called powder coating. This method of painting electrostatically covers metal with a dry pigment, which is then cured under heat to create a durable, uniform finish.
Each piece is cut from brass, powder coated and then finished with sterling silver, oxidized silver or gold-filled findings, unless otherwise stated. Sterling silver pieces are available upon request for custom orders.
Powder coating offers a durable, chip-resistant finish but should be treated nicely and can be cleaned with simple soap and water. Any exposed metal can be cleaned with a general-use jewelry polishing cloth.
Custom orders are welcomed, please contact ABJewelry for more information.
If you need a piece repaired or would like to re-order a misplaced earring, please contact ABJewelry. Each order will be taken care of individually and may include an additional fee.
