ABOUT YOUR JEWELRY
To preserve the high quality of your piece with leather, please avoid contact with water, perfume, soap, and chemicals. Slight imperfections may ocassionally appear, enhancing the beauty and uniqueness of your piece. A silver polishing cloth is a great tool to bring the lustre back to your metal. For pieces without leather, lather with a mixture of baking soda, liquid soap, and water and brush vigorously with a soft bristle brush. Do not use silver polish or cleaner--it will remove the patina. To help prevent tarnish, store jewelry in a plastic baggie... the more you wear your piece, the less it will tarnish.
