Follow these tips to keep your handmade jewelry looking fabulous
Make your jewelry the last thing you put on in the morning & the first thing you take off at night.
Remove when cleaning, working out, swimming, applying make up, perfume & taking a shower. The chemicals used during these activities may cause damage & tarnish metal.
Store your jewelry in a cool dry closed place & away from items that may scratch it. If you have an anti-tarnish jewelry pouch or soft cloth bag, use it to store your jewelry.
Wipe your jewelry clean with a soft cloth or use the SUNSHINE brand polishing cloth, which is one of my personal favorites, before returning it to storage this should remove any body oils & dirt.
Never use liquid silver cleaner on jewelry with pearls or porous stones, as they will be damaged. Instead, periodically clean it by making a mixture of baking soda & water the consistency of toothpaste. Rub this mixture using your hands onto the piece or, if necessary, use a very soft toothbrush. Rinse thoroughly with water and dry completely with a soft cloth. Never use paper towels or tissue to dry your jewelry as they can contain fibers that can scratch.
