Tips for keeping your jewelry looking its best:

- Store jewelry in a sealed bag with a silica bead packet to absorb moisture to prevent tarnishing.

- Lay beaded necklaces flat when not being worn to prevent the stringing material from stretching.  Even wire will lengthen when hung because it is actually multiple thin strands of wire that are twisted together that will unwind due to the weight of the beads.

- Be careful when using silver cleaning products.  They can remove the polish or paint from beads and stones.  Use a q-tip or small paint brush to clean metal areas close to beads.
