How do I care for my Earrings?
Keep your jewellery looking fresh by following these care tips:
- To clean jewellery use a cotton bud/ Qtip with either water or rubbing alcohol and gently spot clean the dirty areas.
- Store Earrings in a dry and clean and secure place, throwing earrings into a handbag or any old place can weaken jewellery findings and cause hooks and earring posts to detach from Earrings.
- Remove jewellery before entering the water.
- Contact with chemicals can cause discolouration of your jewellery. Avoid contact with makeup, perfume and skin products.
Raw Brass components may tarnish or darken over time, these parts can be cleaned with a jewellery polishing cloth or microfiber cloth and a small amount of tarnish remover.
Earring Posts- please do not stand, throw or bend you earrings as this will weaken the post.
Tassels- If tassels become misshapen use your fingers to straighten strands. Do not brush the tassels as this can cause the stands to come out. Alternatively you can cover the tassel with a cloth and use a gentle iron and press for a few seconds at a time.
Polymerclay- Polymer clay is quite flexible when cured,it can be easily scratched by other metals. Avoid bringing into contact with makeup, water and other chemicals. To clean use a cotton bud and gently wipe over dirty spots.
The beauty of being Handmade: Please note all earrings are handmade so there may be slight variances in shape, colour and design, this gives the earrings extra character and uniqueness.
