Your handcrafted jewelry should be treated with care. In order to help it last for many years, here are a few tips to follow:
• Keep your sterling silver in sealed plastic bags when not in use. This will prevent tarnishing. The best way to keep sterling silver from tarnishing? Wear it! The oils on your body keep it clean.
• Remove all jewelry before you swim, shower, or bathe. Chemicals or other irritants in the water can damage your jewelry.
• Clean your handcrafted jewelry by hand, using warm soapy water and a soft cloth. Don't soak gemstones as this can tarnish or discolor them.
• If you wear lotions, hairspray or perfumes, apply these before putting on your jewelry.
