Ask a question

The paperclip isn't just an office staple. It represented unity and was a symbol of resistance during WWII. In the 1940's, citizens in countries under German occupation were not allowed to wear badges or pins representing national symbols so students in Norway chose to wear paperclips on their lapels and collars as a secret symbol of national pride. The humble paperclip brought people together in peaceful solidarity against Nazi Germany. The paperclip necklace is available in sterling silver, 14 karat yellow, rose or white gold. The size of the paperclip is a standard small paperclip (1 inch wide and 1/4" high) and is available in 16, 17, 18, 19, 20 or 21 inches in length. Part of the Hope and Unity Collection, each one is handmade in my studio in NYC. This listing is for the sterling silver paperclip necklace.

Part of the Hope and Unity Collection 10% of every purchase of Paperclip necklaces, Paperclip bracelets, Safety Pin bracelets, Safety Pin earrings and Modern Wings Necklaces will be donated to charity.

All silver eventually oxidizes and turns brown or even black over time. Here's a simple secret to taking the tarnish off any sterling silver that calls for just three ingredients. It's organic, works better than a polishing cloth and you're silver jewelry will look like new. You can thank me later!

You need: aluminum foil, baking soda and boiling water

1. Layer a shallow tray with tin foil (this is key!)
2. Place your sterling silver on top of the foil and sprinkle about 1 tablespoon of baking soda over the silver.
3. Boil water and pour water into the tray (enough to cover your silver) and watch the tarnish magically disappear! If there's still a little more tarnish left, just repeat!
