Please treat and wear your jewelry with care. Although everything is made by hand to ensure a certain quality, always try to avoid contact with water, lotions, perfumes, sweat, hair products, or any liquid. Protect your jewelry from falling to the ground, extreme temperatures/humidities, and rough or hard surfaces. This ensures longevity for wearing. Metals like brass and sterling silver do tarnish with prolonged wear, so most purchases come with a polishing cloth for freshening up your jewelry. We suggest storing jewelry in an air tight plastic bag or box.
If your metal jewelry becomes too oxidized for your taste, there are multiple home remedies to bring back it’s bright color. Try mixing lemon juice and baking soda into a paste, and rub on metal, rinse with water and pat dry with a clean cloth. Make sure never to use this mixture with jewelry that has polymer clay as it can remove the inlay material.
CLAY INLAY CARE
Polymer clay is the perfect medium for adding color to your jewelry collection. Once it bakes, it cures similarly to plastic and is very durable. Unlike enamel or ceramic, polymer clay won’t shatter when dropped. We highly suggest that you should never wash hands, shower, or submerge in water due to the nature of the substance. To care for your tarnished metal jewelry with clay, wipe the metal surfaces down with a non-abrasive polishing cloth, taking care to not touch the clay. If the clay inlay gets dirty, you can wipe the clay with a clean damp cloth if needed, or a cotton ball dabbed with nail polish remover.
