  • R A I V O   M O D E R N, about the jewelry
    • The jewelry pieces I create are mainly produced as part of a series with variations on a theme, either in small batches or individually made-to-order.  I also offer one-of-a-kind as well as limited-edition works.  Most items in the shop are currently available on a made-to-order basis, please allow 3-4 weeks for their fabrication.  All are designed and made by hand using a wide range of novel and traditional metal-smith techniques. 
    • Materials & Care:  sterling silver, brass and copper all develop a patina over time.  This natural patina occurs from a chemical interaction with exposure to oxygen.  Some pieces lend themselves well to this look and if you like you can let nature take its course.   Otherwise, to keep the original shine store jewelry in a sealed plastic bag when not wearing and polish with a sunshine cloth on occasion.  Handle and store all pieces gently to prevent scratches.  Remove jewelry when showering and swimming.
