HOW DO I CARE FOR MY JEWELLERY ? Tarnish is a chemical reaction to moisture and sulfur in the air. Metals tarnish faster in areas with high humidity and air pollution. Chemicals such as hairspray, perfume, body lotion, sunscreen and bleach to name a few can speed up the process. Chemicals can also damage the surface of pearls and porous gems such as turquoise. Prolonged exposure to heat and light can discolour or fade certain gemstones. The best way to prevent tarnishing and scratches is to store clean, dry jewellery in ziploc type bags. This is how I store all my personal jewellery. Do not toss your jewellery unprotected in a drawer and never leave your jewellery in the bathroom or wear in the shower !
'Last on, first off'......your jewellery should be the last thing you put on when getting ready and the first thing you take off.
Leather wrap bracelets: Care must be taken to prolong the life of your leather wrap bracelet. They are sewn with fibre and like any article of clothing may start to show wear and tear with constant daily wear. Particular attention should be paid to friction caused when worn next to or under other articles of clothing such as coat or jacket cuffs or when being worn when using a computer mouse. They are so comfortable that I know it's easy to forget they are there but please remove them before any physical workout, yard work or trip to the beach !
HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF MY METAL CLAY PIECES ? All metal clay jewellery orders are shipped with care instructions. Please wipe only with a soft cloth and store in a ziploc type bag to prevent scratches. Do not use chemical or abrasive cleaners. Do not allow to come into contact with cosmetics, perfume or sunscreen which may contain solvents. All Joshua Tree Jewellery metal clay pieces have been sealed with a protective coating to prevent tarnish but chemicals, especially sunscreen may damage the coating. If at any time your jewellery requires a new coat of sealant please contact me to arrange a return & I will re-apply the sealant at no charge.
