Our metal ornaments are cut from heavy gauge hot rolled steel at our shop in Idaho. They are ground and cleaned to remove any burrs or sharp edges, and are supplied with a twine cord for hanging.
The surface is raw steel, as it is supplied from the mill, which gives the ornaments a natural and "genuinely handcrafted" look and feel. Raw steel will rust if exposed to moisture. In the event that unwanted rust occurs, rub lightly with steel wool to remove any oxidation and coat lightly with oil.
