FOR ALL JEWELRY: Upon removing your earrings, necklace, bracelet or rings, simply wipe them down with a plain cotton cloth. An old t-shirt or lonely cotton sock will do. Body oil is the thing that leads to most tarnish. Do not swim or shower in your jewelry (chlorine is especially unkind to all metals.) If you do swim, carefully rinse and dry your jewelry to maintain the shine.
SILVER JEWELRY: A polishing cloth like Sunshine Cleaning Cloths, or a Pro Polish Pad (both available in the shop) will clean up your shiny silver like new. ALWAYS follow up the pro pad or cloth with a dry cotton cloth to remove any traces of polish. A gentle ultrasonic cleaner can also be used occasionally. Overuse of chemical cleaners, and not rinsing may cause a buildup that creates tarnish.
COPPER JEWELRY: Shiny Copper is meant to patina with age, unless you don't like that - and in that case you can shine it right up with a paste made of baking soda and water and a stiff toothbrush. Polishing pads also shine copper too!
FIRE PATINA COPPER: A protective coating has been applied. Heat, and other storage factors can still age the patina. Copper changes over time, that is the absolute magic of Copper!
BRONZE JEWELRY: Bronze, like Copper is meant to patina with age. But seriously, if you don't like that - you can remove that aged look with a paste made of baking soda and water and a stiff toothbrush. Sunshine Polishing Cloths also make bronze shiny too.
STEEL JEWELRY: All of our steel jewelry pieces are coated, because steel will rust. DO NOT USE ABRASIVES OR POLISHING PADS. After removing your steel jewelry, just wipe it down with a plain piece of cotton cloth.
PAPER JEWELRY: Paper pieces are sealed with a protective coating. There is nothing to do for our paper pieces.
BEADED JEWELRY: Beaded jewelry should never be submerged in liquid. You could damage the stones, the cording, or the connections
