    CARE
    General: Follow these simple guidelines to ensure your jewellery will stay beautiful.

    Apply all beauty products, such as perfume, hairspray or deodorant, before putting on your jewellery.

    Jewellery should be removed prior to swimming or doing household chores which involve the use of abrasive cleaners or chemicals.

    It is also not advised to clean jewellery products with abrasive cleaning products or even proprietary jewellery cleaning products to restore pieces, doing so may damage the jewellery. 

    Only use mild soapy water.

    Contact Abby to use her repair service or professional ultrasonic cleaning equipment for a deeper and safer cleaning of jewellery pieces (except Oxidised Silver)

    Please note colour changes to the surface of the metals may be part of natural wear-and-tear and not usually manufacturing faults.

    Oxidised Silver:
    When you purchase an oxidised piece, expect it to wear back and polish up, so relax and enjoy the way it's surface evolves with time. If you need to clean your oxidised jewellery piece, use a soft sponge or cotton ball with a dab of methylated spirits and wipe gently to remove any grease or dirt. Do not rub too hard and do not use an abrasive surface or solvent.

    Brass:
    To best care for your brass jewellery it is recommended to store your pieces in a zip lock bag to avoid them coming in contact with water and oxygen, this will more rapidly aid the oxidisation process. Salty air and water especially will change the patina of brass jewellery.

    To bring your brass jewellery back the beautiful warm golden lustre of the material, you can clean with vinegar / lemon juice and dishwashing liquid soap to polish.

    To clean apply a small amount of vinegar or lemon juice and lightly scrub over the surface of the piece, rinse under water and then dry thoroughly to clean away any tarnished areas.

    To bring back the shine and luster of your polished brass piece lightly scrub over the surface with a squirt of liquid soap on a strong nylon brush or brass bristled brush. Scrub lightly in a circular motion with a little water then rinse and dry thoroughly. Make sure to always dry brass straight away with a soft cloth.
