You can avoid tarnish by wearing your jewellery often. The oils in your skin will “clean” the silver and keep it looking shiny.
Contact with household chemicals, perspiration, rubber, chlorinated water, or any substances which contain sulfur (such as mayonnaise, eggs, mustard, onions, latex, wool), will cause corrosion and tarnish so it’s a good idea to remove silver jewellery when doing household chores. Direct sunlight also causes tarnishing, so be sure to take off your silver jewellery before you go swimming and sunbathing.
Lotions, cosmetics, hair spray and hair products, and perfumes are also “enemies” of silver and will accelerate tarnishing.
Storage: As exposure to air tarnishes it, storing silver in airtight plastic bags with anti-tarnish strips is a great preventative measure. Each design comes with it’s own special anti-tarnish strip for your use. Just make sure you don’t store multiple jewelry pieces in the same bag: silver is a soft metal, so the individual pieces can scratch each other. If you can’t use plastic bags, try to make sure that the storage area has low humidity. You can also place a piece of chalk, a packet of activated charcoal, or a container of silica gel in the storage area to minimize tarnish.
Polishing: Silver is soft and can become scratched easily. I also supply a special silver cloth to polish your items, but a lint-free flannel, microfiber, or other soft nonabrasive cloth will do as well. Do not use paper towels or tissues to polish your jewelry as they contain fibers that can scratch the silver.
When polishing, use long back-and-forth motions that mirror the grain of the silver. Do not rub in circles, as this will magnify any tiny scratches. Also, change to a different section of your cloth frequently to avoid placing tarnish back on the silver. You can use a cotton bud to get into small, detailed areas.
I always make my jewellery from the best possible quality beads and findings, each piece is very carefully tested when made to make sure it is truly sturdy and securely fastened. I do however ask that you keep all jewellery out of the hands of any young child, they can be unduly rough and accidentally break even the most secure necklace, and beads can be a choking hazard.
If there is ever a problem please do not hesitate to contact me and I will be more than happy to help. All that I ask is that you pay the cost of postage and send the piece back to me, and I will be more than happy to do any repairs or re-stringing and send it back to you.
After all, making jewellery is my passion, something I love doing, and if you're not happy then I'm most certainly not either!
