Here are some tips to ensure that your earrings maintain their beauty.
Polymer Clay Jewelry
- Do not wet polymer clay earrings. Avoid using chemicals, solvents, perfume, jewelry cleaners, or any aerosol products near the earrings.
- In the case that it becomes dirty, wipe with a soft, damp cloth. You may also use a cotton ear swab dipped in acetone to wipe lightly on the surface of the earring--this does NOT apply to earrings that are hand painted, have gold leaf, or are coated with varnish.
- If your piece is varnished, hand painted, has gold leaf, is glittered--use a baby wipe to gently clean the surface of the earring.
- When not in use, store polymer clay jewelry in a box or a separate compartment. Keep away from sharp objects to avoid scratching the surface. This will help with the preservation of each handmade piece.
