Jill Smith's Profile

About

Hello.
My name is Jill and I'm mom to 3 of the best kids in the world! :) I know I'm partial...but they are great kids. I also have an awesome husband. We have been together for 20 years and married for 14 of them! I don't know what I would do without him!

I was a stay at home mom for 7 years and desperately needed a hobby. Something that was MINE. My cousin talked me into trying my hand at making jewelry. I did and that’s when the magic started! I LOVED IT! I soon realized that people really liked and enjoyed the pieces that I made and before I knew it Moonlite Reflections was born. I have found solace in making jewelry. I love being creative and this has given me the chance. I LOVE the feeling of creating something for someone and seeing the look on their faces! It's such a sense of accomplishment. So here I am.

MOONLIGHT REFLECTIONS Jewelry Storage and Care

To maintain the beauty of your jewelry, here are some suggestions for proper care and storage:
1. Salt water, chlorine (swimming pools), and all heavy detergents and cleaning agents should be avoided. Remove your jewelry whenever possible if there is a probability of prolonged moisture, such as when showering, cleaning, washing dishes, etc.
2. Glass pearls are solid glass beads with a pearlescent coating that creates a lustrous shine. Just like oyster-born pearls, these beads need a little TLC to retain their splendor. Remove them when doing exercise or rough work or when using bleach or chemicals. Avoid using chemical or ultrasonic home cleaners. Never leave glass pearl jewelry loose in a jewelry box or in your purse. They can become scratched or chipped. Clean with mild soap and water (but do not scrub) and pat dry.
3. Store silver in a cool, dry place. Because silver tarnishes more quickly, store pieces in a tarnish-preventing bag (zip-loc) or wrapped soft piece of cloth such as felt. Don’t wear silver to bed or when getting wet. Because silver oxidizes, it should not be worn 24 hours a day. It is a good idea to take your jewelry off before bed and store it properly so it will maintain its luster.
4. Just like precious metals, plated jewelry will tarnish when exposed to the air. To remove this tarnish, use the same techniques or solutions that you would with sterling silver. However, use the least amount of polishing (or shortest exposure time needed to liquid dips) as necessary because any process that removes tarnish also removes minute amounts of plating on the surface. Over time the plate will eventually wear. Some plates are thicker than others so a heavy plate will most likely last a lifetime with proper care.
