HELP!! MY EARRINGS HAVE TARNISHED!!
- in order to keep our earrings as affordable as possible, we use 18k gold plated or sterling silver plated hardware (aka. not solid gold/silver). this type of metal is commonly used in fashion jewelry, and tarnishes as it is worn and exposed to moisture and warmth. there are some things you can do to help slow this process, as listed on the jewelry care instructions provided! you can find more info about jewelry tarnishing at places like this.
HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF MY CLAY EARRINGS??
- with every earring order, i will include an earring care card that will help you take care of your new friends! here's some of the tips included:
- keep oils, perfume, and excess water away
- store in a dry place free of sharp objects to avoid scratches
- avoid dropping, banging, and pulling earrings
- if there are removable parts, ensure they are secured upon wearing and be mindful
- be gentle when putting on and removing earrings (ie. don't yank off stud earrings, gently wiggle!)
- fashion jewelry tends to tarnish over time with constant wear. it doesn't affect the integrity of the jewelry, but may not be as bright and sparkling as it once was! following these care instructions will help prolong the appearance of your earrings (especially storing it in a dry, cool place and keeping it away from moisture)
HOW HEAVY ARE YOUR EARRINGS??
- polymer clay is ULTRA lightweight, so most of my earrings feel practically weightless!!
