Brass is the base metal used for the majority of the pieces and parts. The brass is then electroplated in 14K gold, rhodium, sterling silver, or rose gold. On some styles, genuine leather is used for closures, reconstituted stone, lucite and/or glass is used for stone details, and a jewelers adhesive is used for setting stones.
The Blanc Collection pieces are made using white paint that is sprayed on. It is very strong, and is the same paint used on cars.
PLEASE NOTE: When storing Blanc collection pieces, store them separately from all other jewellery, preferably in its own box, to avoid scratching. Do not store your jewellery in any coloured pouches, as the colour may transfer onto the pieces. Store your Blanc Collection pieces individually.
Metal oxidation is a chemical process by which an ionic chemical reaction occurs at the surface of a metal when in the presence of oxygen; it gives off an antique finish to your jewels, whereas high polish remains shiny. See image below.
Left: antique / oxidized | Right: high polish
Follow these simple steps to keep your jewels looking their best year after year:
AVOID direct contact with beauty products such as perfume, hairspray, deodorant and makeup.
ALWAYS remove your jewellery before swimming, bathing or showering.
TO CLEAN your jewellery, wipe with a soft moist cloth and mild soap, avoid harsh detergents and never use jewellery cleaner on fashion pieces.
STORE each piece separately. The best way to store your necklaces is to hang them.
We are committed to producing top-in-industry quality jewellery with a superior plating thickness. However, if your jewels are exposed to the products above some tarnishing may occur. It may also naturally occur from certain skin’s PH levels.
PLEASE NOTE: When storing Blanc and Holiday 2019 collection enamel pieces, store separately from other jewellery, preferably in its own box to avoid scratching. Do not store these pieces in any colored pouches, as the colour may transfer onto the enamel.

Jenny leads the design on every piece, working alongside our Design Director and local Toronto bench jeweler to execute the technical specifications and sample process. Most ideas start with an overall style direction for the season—a vision and a sketch. Her talent and her process is driven by her intuition with respect to what birdgirls will want to wear in their tomorrows.
Jenny’s birth name is Jennifer Lynn Bird, but she has been called Jenny her whole life, so...yes!
