I use Aluminum, Brass, and Copper. Aluminum will give you the look of sterling silver but at a lower cost! Aluminum should not tarnish and is a low risk to a skin reaction for my babes with sensitive skin (everything is nickel free too!) Both Copper and Brass will patina over time and give it a unique aged look. If you do not like this look, you will be able to polish it back to its original shine with a polishing towel♥

 

*All pieces are noncorrosive, lead, nickel, & cadmium free.
