Remember, these treasures are little baby angels, and need to be treated as such.
First, I want to tell you that silver is soft, therefore it scratches pretty easily. When you are partaking in crazy activities (⛷, 🚵🏼, 🏄 , 🏊🏿 ) or something as simple as doing the dishes, think twice before wearing these pieces.
Secondly, chemicals are very bad for any jewelry. The silver and the gemstones that adorn my handmade creations can get destroyed by many different house hold things. Cleaning chemicals, hairspray, perfume, chlorine (pools), are just a few of these items to look out for!
Thirdly, how to clean! The best way to do this is to just use a a bit of dish soap and warm water. Sometimes I add a patina (the darker/aged looking part of the metal) and that can get erased if you use a fancy jewelry cleaner! 🙅🏻
