RESIN

Resin is pretty hard-wearing, but to get the best out of your pieces and ensure they last a lifetime, please try to follow this advice. When needed, clean your resin jewelry with a cloth, mild dish soap, and warm water.

 

Do NOT submerge your pieces in water. Resin is NOT water proof, only water resistant. So please remember to remove your pieces before showers, swimming, etc.

 

Avoid exposing your jewelry to harsh chemicals and cleaning products. This includes perfume, hair spray, cleaning solutions, nail polish remover, antibacterial hand sanitizer etc.

Solvents will react with the epoxy and cause it to become scaly, yellow, chip or break down completely.


Store your jewelry out of direct sunlight. Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can cause the resin to discolor and soften.

POLYMER CLAY

Polymer clay is pretty durable and flexible when cured correctly, but to get the best out of your pieces and ensure they last a lifetime, please try to follow this advice. When needed, clean your resin jewelry with a cloth, mild dish soap, and warm water.

 

Avoid exposing your jewelry to harsh chemicals and cleaning products. This includes perfume, hair spray, cleaning solutions, nail polish remover, antibacterial hand sanitizer etc. 


The clay is strong but CAN be scratched or broken –  be careful not to drop delicate pieces or place in pockets or purses. Not recommended for wear during sleep, showering, or swimming.

 

Store your jewelry out of direct sunlight. Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can cause the clay to discolor.

For resin-coated polymer clay (glossy finish), please see the resin care instructions in addition to these polymer clay care instructions.

BRASS

Wash your brass jewelry in warm water and a mild liquid soap. Always make sure to wipe off with water and dry your jewelry completely after cleaning. Do not use any products that contain alcohol, this can ruin the finish. 

 

If your jewelry is really tarnished, you can use a mix of baking soda, lemon juice and water. Scrub it on with a soft cloth or toothbrush, wipe off, and dry. After cleaning, you can buff your jewelry with a soft cloth to give it a nice finish.

 

Don’t wear your metal jewelry in the shower or swimming. Water can be very harsh on metals. Avoid storing in the bathroom or humid environments. Humidity is very bad for metals and will cause them to tarnish.
