Caring for Jewelry
Caring for Jewelry
Gold plated jewelry
Gold-plated jewelry requires special care so that the plating lasts and does not disappear over time. These tips can help improve the quality and extend the life of your jewelry:
Cleanliness and sports: It is essential to remove jewelry before bathing or playing sports. Sweat and water deeply damage the gold layers with which the jewelry was made.
Storage: Jewelry should be stored individually wrapped in tissue paper, in the box where it was delivered and inside the cloth bag. In this way, oxidation and friction with other parts that could dirty or scratch them are avoided. Rubber containers should never be used for storage as they will cause the jewelry to darken.
Chemical products: It is important to avoid recurring contact with perfumes, creams or chemicals as much as possible.
Humidity: Jewelry should never be stored in humid places. For example, the bathroom is not the right place to store jewelry.
Temperature: It is necessary to avoid exposure to the sun and high temperatures constantly.
If your jewelry has darkened or lost some of its initial shine, the ideal is to use a few drops of dish soap dissolved in a small container of warm water and rub gently, very subtly, with a toothbrush. Afterwards you have to rinse them and make sure they dry properly with a cloth.
The conservation and cleaning process is similar to that of gold-plated pieces. Silver jewelry can darken more easily, removing dirt with a cloth will restore the shine to the piece.

About the Nacre and Sea Ears Marine Pendant
This summer when I was in Cádiz I spent hours looking on the beach for the lucky beans that I always caught when I was little with my grandmother. I knew it was difficult but if I found one I would make a pendant to be lucky during the year and remember her. I only found a little bit complicated to set.
At the turn of the summer a person commissioned me two pendants with some shells that he had caught on the beach. When he showed them to me, I saw they were lucky beans.
I set two of them for him and he gave me another to make a pendant for me.
I don't know if it was a coincidence, but for a reason my grandmother called them lucky beans. ✨
