∆∆∆ CARE OF JEWELRY ∆∆∆
Because many of my pieces are upcycled, vintage, or hand painted, normal wear and appearance might vary.

Before showering/swimming/exercising/applying sunscreen etc...jewelry with bone, gemstones, delicate beadwork, African trade beads, textiles, most metal, and leather should be taken off.

Hand painted and gold dipped bone pendants are sensitive to moisture. Please wear with care.

STERLING + GOLD FILLED:
For Sterling Silver rub with dry baking soda then rinse, or toothpaste & water, or jewelry cleaner.

For Gold-Fill use liquid dish soap & warm water or jewelry cleaner. Be careful not to tangle chain.

RAW BRASS and COPPER:
Raw Brass and copper naturally oxidizes depending on the air & body chemistry but brightens up quickly if you rub with a mixture of lemon and water then rinse. Polishing with a soft cloth also works. It is not irreversibly tarnished, just temporarily oxidized.

GOLD + SILVER PLATE:
Wash gently with liquid dish soap and water, take off before shower/swimming/exercising. Do not scrub Gold or Silver-plated components.

∆∆∆CARE OF WALL HANGINGS∆∆∆
Mix one cup of cool water and two to three drops of liquid soap made for fine washables in a small bowl. Dampen a clean cloth with soapy water and spot clean. Work at any stains with the cloth until they disappear. Dab the soapy area with another cloth saturated with plain water to rinse the area after removing the stain.

Do not submerge entire weaving in water. A variety of materials are used - some of which might shrink at a different rate than other materials.
