Here are some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about Suspiro. If you can’t find your question here, please feel free to email me at


Where are your jewels made?
All Suspiro Jewels are designed and made in Coimbra, Portugal – Europe.
What materials are used in your jewels?
Suspiro creations are made of polymer clay, brass, stainless steel and copper.
What is polymer clay?
Polymer clay is a sculptable, pliable medium which becomes stiff when baked. It’s eco-friendly and non-toxic. Its unbaked form resembles that of Play-Doh. It is a very lightweight material with some resistance to shock and water.
Are polymer clay and metal components imported?
All polymer clay components are handmade by Andreia at Suspiro studio. With the exception of chains, bobby pins bases, barrettes bases and some rings bases, all metal components are handmade by Andreia at Suspiro studio.
Is Suspiro jewelry anti-allergic?
Although metals used on Suspiro jewelry are not considered anti-allergic, they are lead and nickel free which prevents many allergies.
Does Suspiro jewelry tarnishes?
Suspiro uses different metals in its collections, stainless steel is a non-tarnish metal. The copper metal used in Suspiro collections have anti-tarnish protection. At this moment only brass jewelry can get tarnished over time, however, tarnished jewelry can be cleaned without getting damaged.

Yes, it is! But of course, I wouldn’t recommend you to go swimming with your Suspiro necklace on. You always should keep your jewels away from salty water and water with chemicals added.
