All handmade jewelry is special, from the delicate nature of the stones down to the fine & sterling silver hand crafted settings. Jewelry should not be worn when showering, swimming or during strenuous activity and sports. Beauty products such as perfume, hair spray and body lotions should be applied before putting on your jewelry or skipped on days when wearing your handmade pieces. Store your jewelry in a small box or pouch to reduce tarnishing. To remove tarnish, use a good quality polishing cloth such as a Sunshine cloth. As always, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out & ask!
