Q: How do I take care of my jewellery?
A: The do’s and dont’s may look very daunting at first but with a bit of care your jewellery can be worn for years without repairs or replacements needed. Below are some simple care instructions Angie does provide a copy of this with each piece of jewellery she makes. Resin Jewellery is hard-wearing but to get the best out of your pieces and ensure they last a lifetime adhere to the following advise
- Scrapes – Try to avoid bumping scratching or sleeping in resin jewellery. This could damage the piece of jewellery.
- Abrasives – Don’t use abrasives to clean your jewellery sometimes a damp microfibre, chammy or silk cloth will polish your piece nicely.
- Water – Avoid submerging your jewellery pieces in water, we advise to remove your jewellery when washing or swimming.
- Sunlight – Store your jewellery out of direct sunlight. Direct sunlight can cause resin to discolour and soften if exposed for prolonged periods.
- Smoking – If your jewellery is in regular contact with smoke it may cause the piece to discolour.
- Chemicals- We advise to avoid exposing your jewellery to hard chemicals and cleaning products. This can range from hairspray, cleaning solutions and antibacterial hand sanitiser. Solvents will react with the epoxy and cause the resin to become scaly, yellow and possibly chip or break down completely.
- Cleaning silver or gold settings – We advise to use a silver polishing cloth for sterling silver findings and setting’s, when doing this please be careful not use the cloth on the resin part of your jewellery. Gently rub it on the metal carefully.
