Jewelry Cleaning and Care
 
Proper jewelry care greatly extends the life of your piece.  Keep these tips in mind while enjoying your handcrafted jewelry:

-Put on jewelry after using hairsprays, perfumes, etc. to avoid buildup.
-Occasional cleaning with mild soap and water can help keep jewelry looking like new.  Make sure to dry thoroughly with a
soft cloth (paper towels can scratch finishes).
-Jewelry is best stored in an airtight bag when not in use. Your item is typically packaged in an airtight plastic bag with a small piece
of anti-tarnish silvercloth for this purpose.
-Remove jewelry before swimming, showering, or working with harsh chemicals.
-If an item tarnishes, gently polish with a jewelry polishing cloth.  Take extra care with plated jewelry, as aggressive polishing can
remove the finish.

require special care.
