Frequently asked questions

I am allergic to nickel. Can I wear your earrings?

All of our hooks and posts are nickel free! They are hypoallergenic stainless steel unless otherwise noted.

How do I care for my earrings?

Polymer clay earrings are very durable but do require some care. Avoid using lotions, perfumes, aerosols, or jewelry cleaners near your pieces to prevent discoloring. To clean, wipe with a soft, damp cloth as needed. Keep away from sharp objects to avoid scratches. Brass will tarnish over time creating a natural patina. To clean use a cloth and a dab of brass cleaner or cola.

Can I send earrings to someone as a gift?

All orders arrive boxed with tissue paper and earrings are fixed to an earring card. All items are gift-ready and packages contain no prices or packing slips. If you would like a gift message included, please leave a message in the “Add a note” section when checking out.

Are your earrings heavy?

Polymer clay is extremely light weight. Our largest pair of earrings weigh less than half an ounce combined! You can wear our pieces all day and night without experiencing any soreness on those gorgeous lobes.

Can you create a custom earring for me?

We love working with customers to create one-of-a-kind items. If you are interested in a custom design, please contact us. Note: Sputtering Glimmer will not recreate another artist’s design!

Do you practice sustainability?

We are committed to reducing our ecological footprint! We plan to be 100% plastic free within the first quarter of 2021. Currently our only plastic use is tape. Our production process is designed so that we are making only what we need, allowing us to avoid waste. Our clay scraps are often used for limited edition one-of-a-kind designs in order to eliminate waste. We even save the shavings from drilling the holes in earrings with jump rings!
