How to care for your jewellery
An occasional polish with a silver polishing cloth such as Goddards, available in supermarkets, is all that is needed to keep your jewellery looking good. Copper and bronze will darken more than silver but a quick polish will bring it back to it's rich loveliness.
I suggest avoiding contact with perfume and household chemicals, bleach, chlorine and seawater as they may discolour the metal.
Do not use Silver Dip to clean your jewellery as it is likely to discolour it.
Made to order items
Ah yes, that disappointing feeling when you find something you want to buy then realize it's "made to order". Most of my copper and bronze bangles and a couple of my lighter sterling silver bangles are made to order. I aim to get made to order items made and ready to post in 4 to 5 days. If an order is needed sooner than this please contact me and I will try my best to help.
Descriptions, sizes and colours
My jewellery is described as accurately as possible in regard to size and colour. There may be slight variations in bead or enamel colours due to how different monitors display colours. Due to the nature of handmade please allow for slight variations in the appearance of my made to order items compared to their photos.
