A tonneau (barrel) is a container made of wood used to store liquids for consumption. It allows the ageing of the wine. Herodotus mentions in the fifth century BC. AD a wine trade by sea, between Armenia and Mesopotamia, using palm wood barrels. The barrel is often considered a Celtic, more precisely Galic, invention but the oldest iconographic traces of barrels actually come from Etruria in the sixth century BC

Details & Care

All pieces are handcrafted by us on our home studio in the French Alps. We put a lot of energy and love into our work. Polymer clay has a delicate nature and is a flexible material when cured. It can show little imperfections after fire like slightly colors variations, tiny marks and very small bubbles - which we manage to avoid almost entirely due our firing technique. The eventual inconsistencies that can occur in no way affect the functionality or overall aesthetic appeal of the pieces. It's the nature of handmade and the guarantee you are acquiring a truly unique piece.  

Store your earrings away from other metal jewelry to avoid scratching.  Polymer clay will not break if dropped but can break if you bend the parts. Handle your jewelry carefully. Don't press the clay when putting or removing the earrings. Hold the earring around the backs and gently turn the butterfly/stopper away or into the backs. 

Makeup or other dirt can be removed from clay by using cotton and alcohol or acetone. Be careful to not remove the shades and colors. Rub the cotton gently over the spots. 

Let the earrings laying flat when not in use. 

All pieces are unique, hand shaped with polymer clay. We use natural leather cording and Titanium (nickel free) earrings pads and silver-filled jump rings from a single mine origin, meeting strict ethical, environmental and health and safety standards.

Hello Zephyr is following EU directions that regulates the use of nickel in jewelry. We use solid sterling silver or silver filled for some of the jump rings and it can oxidize and tarnish over time. The metal will not chip off as it is not plated. We recommend Zephyr jewelry not be worn when swimming or in the shower. Perfumes or lotions should not be used directly on jewelry. Sterling silver can tarnish due to being exposed to air so the best way to keep jewelry clean and from tarnishing is to store it on the box as it comes with anti-tarnishing paper. You can also use a jewelry polishing cloth to wipe down the silver parts after each wear to maintain appearance or polish vigorously to remove accumulated platina.

Why Made to Order

Made to order product online is manufactured as and when it is ordered and according to the specifications of the individual. Made to order is also slower to produce and is therefore more environmentally sustainable, causing less wastage and avoiding over-production. As a movement, made to order promotes a culture of quality where people come to appreciate and cherish their garments as heirlooms rather than just seasonable pieces that quickly go out of fashion.
