How to take care of your jewelry

As you may have seen in my shop, I enjoy working with different type of materials.

In my MACRAME COLLECTIONS, every creation has a unique combination of stones and metals ( please check the product description as I will mention the metal/materials used).

  • I always use high quality polyester cords ( LINHASITA brasilian cord), and although they are resistant to water, I don’t recommend contact to water.
  • In my macrame creations, I also work also with these metals: copper, brass and zamak ( mix alloy of zinc aluminum magnesium and copper). They will naturally tarnish over time. This will give your piece an antique feel and look.

    However, to prevent faster oxidation and extend the life of all the materials that make up your jewel, here you have GENERAL CARE INSTRUCTIONS:
  • Chemicals like hairspray, perfume, deodorant, body lotion, bleach, fruit juice, tea etc., can speed up the tarnishing process.
  • Store your jewelry in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight and moisture.
  • Store your jewelry in individual, small bags, or in a jewelry box. 
  • Do not store jewelry unprotected in the bathroom or exposed to humidity and moisture.

In my SILVER COLLECTIONS, I use sterling silver. This metal will tarnish as well over time. So they have same general care instructions written above.


CLEANING YOUR JEWELRY

A good and effective way to clean your jewelry is using a Polishing cloth. You can get one at jewelry stores or can also buy one online. Just in macrame designs be careful no to damage the fabric.
