All shades are made by hand and consequently may contain some natural variation in size, shape and color, which is naturally occuring and may be apparent between batches. This is a deliberate choice by the designers and reflects the process of a handmade item.

Dust gently or wipe metals gently with a damp cloth. Do not use commercial cleaners or abrasive scouring pads of any kind.
