How to care for your handmade jewellery.
In a few easy steps you will be able to care for your handmade jewellery and keep it looking great for years to come.
As with all jewellery you should always put it on after you have done your hair and makeup. Hairsprays and makeup powders can dull the lustre of your jewellery and perfumes can sometimes strip the coating off your beads.
When you are not wearing your jewellery don’t just throw it in your draw or jewellery box, take the time to put it in an organza bag (Sparkling Dragon Designs supplies these with your purchase) or in a clear snap lock bag.
You will thank me when you don’t have a tangle of necklaces and earrings to fight with the next time you put on your jewellery.
You should also remove your jewellery before you go to bed, take a shower or wash the dishes (hummm.. maybe get a dishwasher or just wear disposable gloves). Now I am not saying that I am an angel when it comes to this but I really do try as it is worth the effort not to ruin my jewellery. I defiantly would recommend not wearing your jewellery whilst swimming or in a spa as the chemicals are harsh and will do really nasty things to your handmade jewels.
If you are finding that your gorgeous handmade jewellery is not as lustrous as when you first bought it you can use a soft cloth (even a face washer) to gently polish the surface of the beads and gems to restore their sparkle. This is a great therapeutic thing to do whilst watching your favourite TV show.
Here are some more terrific ways to store your jewellery:
