Wooden Jewelry & Wood Earrings
Western Bohemian Jewelry's fine wood jewelry and natural jewelry are made with natural materials and should be treated with respect. *our jewelry should only be used in well healed piercings.*
cleaning: Clean occasionally with mild soap and water. Dry. Oil your bone, horn or wood jewelry lightly with jojoba oil or another natural oil intended for natural jewelry. Please do not soak in anything, do not boil or autoclave! storage: Keep in a cool, dry place. (like your dresser or jewelry box.) Don't leave for a long time in your car, sunny windows, or other hot or sunny place. Don't leave your carved jewelry in a place where it will be wet. Other Things to Know: Our wood earrings with posts made for regular pierced ears fit comfortably and normally for 98% of people. If your ears are recently pierced or very sensitive, you may experience discomfort due to the size of the earring post of our wooden or organic tribal earrings. We recommend oiling the post slightly before you put them in your ear the first time with jojoba oil to relieve discomfort. You amy also like our Faux Gauge earrings, handmade and carved in wood, bone and horn, these have a sterling silver post for the carved earrings, and look like gauged earrings.
Tribal Silver earrings
Our tribal silver earrings should be handled for like you would any other fine, handmade silver jewelry. Avoid excessive handling, as the oils of your skin will cause the silver to tarnish. wipe with a soft dry cloth to keep them clean and bright. Keep in a dry place and clean occasionally with a polishing cloth or other jewelry cleaner.

Bone Jewelry & horn jewelry
Bone Jewelry WATER BUFFALO BONE and HORN, LATIN NAME: bubalus bubalis. ORIGIN: South-East Asia HARVESTING PRACTICE: The bone and horn we use is a by-product of meat production and farming practice. OTHER DETAILS: Recycled. The water buffalo of South East Asia is a domesticated animal. It is used to plow fields and carry loads. They are well treated and important to the survival of the native people. When they are too old to work, they are eaten and all part of the animal are utilized. They are never taken in pursuit of the bones and horns!
About the horn earrings and jewelry:
Horn is very much like your hair or fingernails in nature, and requires care. The horn needs to be conditioned, and should be oiled to protect it
as we suggested earlier. This will maintain the color and preserve the smooth surface.
Try not to drop it, sit or step on it. The bone does not need to be conditioned, but may be oiled to protect your bone earrings as we suggest in the beginning of this page. This will cause the color to deepen into an ivory like-tone, not "bone white".
MOTHER OF PEARL JEWELRY
MOTHER OF PEARL, LATIN NAME: ORIGIN: molluccas, Indonesia HARVESTING PRACTICE: skin diving to deep reefs, the shells are found already dead. OTHER DETAILS: Recycled. OUR SOURCE: Recycled. We use shell that is a byproduct of production of fine mother of pearl bowls from a silver factory in a nearby city. We choose to recycle the best quality pieces from the remnants of their production
