Caring for your resin jewellery

4 Jun

Supposing you have bought one of my lovely little babies, how do you care for it, I hear you ask!!

Well, for starters, you can wash it with luke-warm water &  mild soap, if needed, be careful not to leave it to soak, I use a gentle toothbrush to brush it with the soap, then a quick rinse.  Better yet just rub in your favourite moisturiser!

Once I have finished sanding and polishing an item, that’s what I do!  I currently use a patchouli scented one, but have even used Vaseline Intensive Care and a Nivea one in the past.

Of course you also need to treat it with care, because whilst resin is quite a sturdy product, it could still break or chip under the right circumstances.  The pieces should not be expected to withstand a hard knock or decent drop, they should not be heated or left in the sun for extended periods of time.  Avoid wearing your pieces whilst swimming or cleaning and make sure you put on your jewellery last when getting ready for a night out – all these chemicals could easily damage or discolour your fabulous item.

Your resin piece is unique and individual, I tend to mix my own colours so could never make exactly the same one should something happen to yours, I am happy to try, however it is unlikely to be a perfect match.
