Handmade from Etsy Shop Clementine, creating modern and minimalist jewelry in a Massachessetts studio using recycled metals
- Never expose gold or gold fill jewelry to chlorine (that includes pools, hot tubs, and bleach). Chlorine attacks gold and causes deterioration.
- You will greatly prolong the life of your jewelry if you treat it well. Try not to swim, shower, exercise or sleep with your jewelry on. Over time, your brass, copper, sterling silver, and goldfill might begin to patina or tarnish. It’s easy to clean your metal jewelry with an old toothbrush and baking soda toothpaste. Store your clean and dry jewelry in plastic bags to keep it protected from the air.
- Oxidized metals: the black color is a chemical reaction on the surface of the metal. Over time, it will age into its own unique patina. Clean with soap and water only.
