The Ultimate Guide To Caring for Your Handmade Clay Jewelry

Handmade clay jewelry isn't cheap and usually are one-of-a-kind designs that are unique and rarely duplicated--you want to be able to maintain its beauty along with the value of your cherished heirloom over time. Handmade clay jewelry can be delicate, lightweight and will require careful handling to maintain its integrity...

So, here are some tips on how to care for your handmade clay jewelry:

1. Handle with care: Due to its handmade nature, some clay jewelry can be delicate, while others can be durable and flexible, but all have a breaking point if not handled with care. When putting on or taking off the jewelry, do so slowly and carefully to avoid pulling or stretching the clay material. With clay earrings, when placing or replacing earring backings, make sure to stabilize the clay earrings so that the backing doesn't rip away and break the clay. 

2. Keep away from perfumes and lotions: Direct contact with perfumes, lotions, hairspray, or other cosmetics can cause damage to the clay material and affect its color and texture.

3. Avoid exposure to water: Exposure to water can ruin clay jewelry by softening the clay and causing it to lose its shape. Therefore, it's recommended that you remove clay jewelry before showering, washing your hands, or any other activity that involves water.

4. Store properly: When not wearing the clay jewelry, it's a good idea to keep it in a separate box or pouch away from other pieces of jewelry. This will help prevent scratches or other types of damage that can occur when the jewelry comes into contact with other items.

5. Clean carefully: To clean clay jewelry, use a soft cloth to gently wipe away any dust, dirt or makeup. Avoid using water or harsh chemicals on the jewelry.

Hopefully, by following these tips above, you can help ensure that your handmade clay jewelry stays in beautiful condition for years to come.
