Natural metals will oxidize over time. With copper this is usually a desired effect but with brass, silver and bronze it may not be. Here are some tips on keeping your pieces looking new.
+ A polishing cloth is a simple way to clean pieces a needed.
+ Wear your silver often. The skins natural oils help protect the metal.
+ Remove your jewelry when cleaning or in chlorinated water.
+ Store your pieces in a cool dry place away from moisture.
Some of my work is intentionally oxidized. Using a jewelry cloth on these pieces will remove the patina.
essential oil diffusion
Place one to two drops of essential oils on the black lava bead. The lava rock is porous and will soak in the oils, lasting 4-8 hours depending on type, brand and number of drops used. Once the oil has diffused reload the stones with the same or different oil.
* Please test all essential oils prior to use in case of allergy. Keep out of the reach of children. Oils can be toxic if consumed and stones can pose a choking hazard. Essential oils can be considered a perfume.
