Caring for Your Jewellery
* Clean your silver jewellery regularly with a jewellery cleaning cloth or silver polish
* The most effective (and cost effective) type of silver polish I have found you should already own, toothpaste. Simply rub toothpaste on damp silver jewellery with your fingers or a very soft brush. Rinse with water and dry with a soft cloth.
* Your copper jewellery is coated with a bees wax polish to prevent the metal from oxodizing and changing the look of the piece. It is recommended that you reapply the wax every few years to keep your piece looking like new. A recommended brand of wax is listed at the bottom of this screen.
* Do not immerse your wood jewellery in water, this could cause the wood to crack and the inlayed silver to loosen.
* To remove surface dirt use a damp paper towel or soft cloth.
* To clean the silver inlay on your wood jewellery use a silver polishing cloth which can be purchased at many jewellery stores.
* Your wood jewellery is coated with a beeswax polish to protect the wood. It is recommended that you reapply wax every few years. A recommended wax is listed at the bottom of this screen.
* If you would prefer not to wax your jewellery it is recommended that you oil the wood every few months to keep it hydrated and restore the wood's natural shine. Simply apply a bit of oil with a soft cloth. You can use any kind of clear oil including cooking oils or clear machine oils such as sewing machine oil.
