Our designs are carefully handmade in Ontario, Canada and the life of your piece will depend on how you care for it.
Ensure you remove your jewelry when:
- Putting on perfume or lotion
Avoiding these things helps prevent and slow down metal tarnish, which happens to all metals over time. Water doesn't have a negative effect on resin, but it does encourage tarnish on metal.
But, beyond regular care there are some special requirements and emphasis on different things (storing in a dark place is IMPORTANT for resin jewelry!).
Things to avoid.
- Extreme Heat
- Sharp Objects
- Submerging in liquids
- Harsh Chemicals
When not wearing your jewelry, prevent tarnish by keeping your jewelry in a closed container like a small baggie or a jewelry box (or both!). Air tight is preferable. Store this container in a dark, cool, dry area.
This helps to preserve the longevity of any flora embedded in the resin and the resin itself, since in darkness it isn't exposed unnecessarily to UV rays.
