Care and Cleaning of Your Jewelry
Here are some cleaning instructions for any of my hand crafted goods made from sterling silver, gold, copper, or brass.
The best way to clean fingerprints, smudges, and other minor surface grime off your jewelry and gemstones is with a soft, lint-free cloth like someone would use to clean their glasses. This is the safest, easiest way to clean your jewelry.
If you've got a quite a bit of dirt or grime on your jewelry, the best way to clean it yourself is with a soft toothbrush and dawn dish soap under running water. Be sure to plug your sink!!! Do not use toothpaste as a cleaning agent! Toothpaste is a mild abrasive and will put scratches on any metal surfaces! When you're done, damp it dry with a soft, lint-free cloth.
Over time, when wearing your jewelry, the finish will get scratched up a bit. It can't be helped. The best way to get rid of minor scratches is with a polish cloth. Polish cloths can usually be purchased at a local jewelry store, or some department stores, and a

Copic Markers and Pony colors
I get a LOT of questions regarding what colors I use where when it comes to the ponies, and I keep saying I'm gonna make a little guide. Well, let's give it a shot.
For the majority of my covers, I use Copic markers to color. Copics are light-fast, alcohol markers... not unlike a classic school marker, but higher quality. I prefer Copic over other brands primarily for a few reasons: Variable tips (markers, fine, brush, etc), better blending, and they can be refilled! This is the BIG selling point to me... this means you can buy the marker once, and continue to refill. It also means you can custom blend colors should you desire. Copics also guarantee that if you buy Y00 yellow, and then buy another down the line, the colors will match. I've bought the same marker color from other brands and had them not match. I will use other brands here and there for very specific colors or effects, but Copic is 99% of my marker work.
So... when I do a cover or whatever, I do basic ink lines first wit

I know I haven't posted any new carvings since August that's because I am officially retired from carving ponies. I just haven't found the time or money to carve other things since materials are expensive and I had a sewage pipe burst in my work area so it literally smells like crap! I figure it's a sign telling me rest you did enough! So I am focusing on other things at the moment and I might pick up my tools again if people are interested in purchasing things from me because I am flat out broke and can't keep doing freebies anymore! I might do GoT sigils, Pokémon, animals and other things I haven't made my mind up on yet!
