Caring for Handmade Jewelry Over the Long Run Homemade jewelry is often a preferred choice in jewelry purchasing since it’s more likely that the pieces will be unique instead of mass produced by bigger retailers. Going with homemade jewelry also means that you’ll have more of one on one experience with the jewelry maker which can also be nice. There are some special considerations to keep in mind when it comes to keeping your homemade jewelry looking good over the long term. Jewelry can get dirty pretty easily with what we put it through, and since homemade jewelry is so delicate it’s crucial to keep it as clean as possible. A simple rule to keep in mind is to clean the pieces more often that you wear the most. Choosing the right cleaner is going to be very important. For example, you can’t use your gold ring cleaner on homemade jewelry that’s covered in gemstones. Gold jewelry cleaner is also not appropriate for silver jewelry. When you’re dealing with homemade jewelry that has a lot of gemstones on it you might consider using a jewelry cleaning machine to keep them clean, or you can also use some gentle soap and water instead. To allow your jewelry to dry properly you’ll want to pat it dry gentle and then let it sit out to dry completely. Another thing to think about is the way that you store your jewelry.

You might have noticed how quickly silver jewelry tarnishes even when it’s not being worn, which is why it needs to be stored in airtight containers whenever possible. While you’re protecting your silver jewelry from the air you should also take great care to protect it from other pieces of jewelry and storing each piece in an individual plastic bag is one of the most convenient ways to do it. Any necklaces that were made with metals that aren’t likely to tarnish can be hung in view as opposed to stored in boxes.
