JEWELRY CARE

Your jewelry piece is lovingly handmade just for you. Here are some tips and FAQ's on caring for your jewelry:

     Beadwork jewelry pieces are handwoven with glass beads, which are delicate in nature. Please handle your piece gently and with care. Keep separate from other jewelry to avoid tangling and scratches. Avoid dropping or putting under heavy weight as the beads may break. Please keep your jewelry in a cool, dry place away from sunlight.

     To straighten out fringes, gently massage and hang from an earring holder or lay flat. Do NOT pull.

     Sculpted pieces are glazed with resin, which does not react well to water. Wetting your sculpted piece will deteriorate the resin glaze. Wipe gently with a soft, dry cloth after wearing, and store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Please keep away from water, moisture, perfumes, lotions, oils, and other household chemicals. Be gentle with your jewelry and avoid dropping them or putting under heavy weight as your piece may break.

     Metal components are stainless steel and are safe for sensitive skin. Gold-tone stainless steel may naturally wear over time. Depending on personal pH levels of skin, some people may experience jewelry wear more quickly than others. To keep metal components in good condition, wipe gently with a soft, dry cloth after each use. Avoid exposure to moisture, perfumes, lotions or oils, and household chemicals. Please keep away from water. Store in an airtight ziplock bag or container to prevent oxidization.

  • Can I swim with my jewelry?

No. Please do not swim, bathe, or expose your jewelry to water or moisture.

  • What will happen to my jewelry if it gets wet?

Bead woven pieces are woven with waxed thread. If your jewelry piece gets wet, the moisture will damage the wax coating and cause the thread to deteriorate, which in turn will weaken the piece and may lead to breakage.

 

Sculpted jewelry pieces are glazed with resin, which will react and deteriorate after coming in contact with water. Please do NOT wet your jewelry.

  • What can I do if my jewelry gets wet?

In case your jewelry accidentally gets wet, gently pat with a soft, dry cloth and lay flat on a dry towel in a well-ventilated area away from direct sunlight until completely dry. Do NOT blow dry or leave under the sun.
