Original/Custom Artworks

Watercolour can fade in direct sunlight. The natural pigment in the oil paints are less likely to be effected by direct sunlight, but it is best to avoid. Handle with care and avoid touching the painting directly. Framing is advised to protect the artwork.

Prints

Keep out of direct sunlight as they can fade over time. Handle with care and avoid touching the print directly. Framing is advised to protect the artwork.

Drifted Elements – Handmade Seaglass Jewellery

After spending a lifetime in the ocean currents, seaglass receives a frosted look. You can leave the glass in its natural condition, or if you would prefer to temporarily remove the frost, rub a small amount of baby oil or coconut oil onto the glass then wipe the excess off with a paper towel.

For a healthy piercing, clean regularly with an antiseptic spray.

Sterling Silver

Sterling silver can tarnish over time, when oxygen and sulphur come in contact with the silver. In some instances this has been intentional, to highlight details on the jewellery. However if your jewellery becomes tarnished, follow these simple steps below:

You can avoid tarnish simply by wearing your jewellery often. The oils in your skin “clean” the silver and keeps it looking shiny.

Avoid contact exposure with household chemicals, perspiration, rubber, chlorinated water, or any substances which contain sulphur (e.g., mayonnaise, eggs, mustard, onions, latex, wool), will cause corrosion and tarnish. Lotions, cosmetics, hair spray and hair products, and perfumes will accelerate tarnishing. It is also best to avoid direct sunlight.

To keep your silver jewellery in the best condition, regular polishing is advised. Using a lint-free flannel, micro-fibre, or other soft non-abrasive cloth will do well. Do not use paper towels or tissues to polish your jewellery as they contain fibres that can scratch the silver.

When polishing, use long back-and-forth motions that mirror the grain of the silver. Do not rub in circles, as this will magnify any tiny scratches. Also, change to a different section of your cloth frequently to avoid placing tarnish back on the silver. You can use a Q-tip to get into small, detailed areas.

Soft Range

Avoid wearing jewellery in the shower, chlorinated water or in the ocean.
