All metal findings used in our creations except the charms are stainless steel. All the charms are coated with Everbrite coating which means that it is safe for people with metal allergies, and will not tarnish. The only exceptions are the brooches, collar pins and hair barrettes. Those are silver plated brass and cannot be coated with the anti-tarnish coating due to the moving parts.
