Frequently asked questions

What is Polymer Clay?

Polymer clay is a man-made clay mainly consisting of a polyvinyl chloride (PVC) base. PVC is an artificial plastic polymer and is one of the most widely used plastics in the world. Other components of polymer clay include resins, fillers and coloring. These ingredients give polymer clay its flexibility, soft texture and vibrant color. The polymer clays we use are non-toxic and free of wheat, dairy, gluten, sulfur, nuts and latex.

Are Polymer Clay earrings heavy?

Not at all! Polymer clay once baked is super light weight. Each pair will weigh more or less depending its size.

Why are there imperfections in my items?

Each item of Carlisle Clay jewelry is made by hand, making each item unique and subject to slight imperefections.

Where/how should I store my items?

When not in use, store it in a container to avoid scratches from sharp objects. Keep away from extreme heat. Avoid dropping your items as the small and intricate details may come off due to the impact.

How should I care for my polymer clay jewelry?

Polymer clay is fade resistant and waterproof making items durable when proper care is taken. To clean the polymer clay jewelry, simply use a piece of moist soft fabric and a mild soap, and gently wipe clean. You may also use a tooth brush with a soft bristle to remove dirt and dust. We also recommend avoiding the application of perfume, deodorant and hairspray while wearing your items as direct contact with the oils in these products could affect the appearence of your jewelry. Although waterproof, remove your earrings when showering or going into the pool/water.
