About Our Products

We're building this page out as we go, but you can find info about our process, different alloys, caring for your Nishnabotna procuts, and more here.

 

How Do Alloys Compare?

Different metals have different looks. The majority of Nishnabotna products are made from non-ferrous metals like gold, silver, and brass. Gold and brass have yellow colors, but vary greatly in their abilities to resist tarnishing and cost. Gold will keep its color (generally) while brass will oxidize over time. Several of our silver products can be ordered with a black oxide finish, but silver can also change in color with exposure to air, oil, or other compounds. Send us an email if you have any questions about material finishes!

 

Want It Made Custom?

Everything at Nishnabotna is handmade, one at a time. Let us know if you want to make a custom adjustment to one of the pieces you see on the site. We can usually do it, and we're happy to work with you to figure out how to make a piece work right for you. Want something in a custom alloy that's not listed, or a different patina? Send a message and we'll work it out - just give us a little extra time to complete the order.
