Tom Kruskal

My background is in mathematics, design and music. My career has been about elevating hand-forged jewelry from a craft to an art, and balancing artistic honesty with the integrity of a successful small business. My inspirations include: organic shapes in the New England countryside, the ocean in its fluid changing forms, and the music and dance that fill my life outside the jewelry studio and remind me of the proportion, balance, movement and grace I strive for in my jewelry designs. My design process incorporates a lifelong exploration of linear forms in space, and attention to the interplay of aesthetics and the fabrication process (if it’s too complicated to make, it’s probably not a good design!).

My goal is to create beautiful jewelry that is light yet strong, classic yet contemporary appropriate for women of all ages, wearable day to evening affordable for most, and a compliment to the wearer’s spirit. Tom was one of our original artists at ZFolio and for all these reasons.

Sterling Silver

Many silver jewelry pieces today are rhodium coated to prevent tarnishing and can be easily cleaned at home. Use a damp cloth, gentle soap and water to clean your jewelry. Then dry with a dry cloth.

More aggressive cleaning may be necessary for tarnished or textured jewelry. Heat the item by dipping in hot tap water. Then scrub with a soft toothbrush using toothpaste, baking soda or a non-abrasive silver polish to remove most tarnish and dirt.

Jewelry with pearls or soft gemstones (carnelian, lapis, malachite, opal, onyx) requires special care. Use only the softest cloth and wipe gently, and never use harsh cleaning solutions or chemicals.

To prevent damage and reduce the need for cleaning, keep all jewelry, (especially pearls and soft gemstones) away from household cleaners and hair care products. Chlorine bleach found in hot tubs and swimming pools can be especially harmful and will immediately tarnish most sterling and damage soft gemstones.

Gold, Platinum and Other Precious Metals and Gems

Most fine gold jewelry may be cleaned simply using warm water and nonabrasive soap using a small bristle brush such as a soft child’s toothbrush to remove solid substances lodged to the surface. Rinse in warm water, dry and polish with a soft cloth.

An ultrasonic cleaner can be used, except for items with aquamarines, emeralds, opals, and pearls. Jewelry with aquamarine, emeralds, opals, and pearls should be cleaned very carefully with soap and water.

Take Simple Precautions

Fine jewelry is durable, but not indestructible. We recommend not wearing your fine jewelry weightlifting, heavy lifting, playing golf, landscaping, gardening, horseback riding, in the pool or spa. Chlorine is toxic for many metals.
