Avoid contact with water, direct sunlight, perfume, harsh chemicals and other damaging elements.
Avoid sleeping with your jewellery on.
Avoid unnecessary stress or strain; tugging, squashing, bending etc.
Most metals will oxidise (tarnish) naturally over time. Silver will oxidise faster than usual when emerged in seawater. To bring back the shine, try using brasso or a silver polishing cloth. You could also try scrubbing with a toothbrush and a mixture of bicarb, dishwashing liquid and water. Bring your pieces in to the studio and I’ll happily re-polish for you, on the house. Re-polishing of silver jewellery pieces that were made elsewhere will be charged for.
Please note: I do not take on repairs or alterations to items that are not my own original work.
