My silver has gone black - Why?

Care for your horse hair jewellery:

The horse hair in your braid is just clean hair. It has no special coating or treatment and therefore it should be treated in the same way as you would any other hair:

  • avoid abrasive situations or material

  • it can get wet but if it does then let it dry naturally

If you have a problem with your piece please do get in touch as there may be a way of rescuing it even if it means removing a section.

Care for your resin jewellery:

The resin which I use is jewellery grade epoxy resin and is pretty hard wearing but it’s not indestructible so here are a few pointers to keep it looking it’s best (if you have more suggestions please let me know and I’ll update the information):

  • If it looks a little dull

    • all it usually takes is polishing with a soft cloth

    • if your jewellery needs more than just a polish then mild soap and water are fine but make sure that you dry it thoroughly with a soft cloth

  • Avoid commercial jewellery cleaners as some can discolour or dissolve the resin

  • Don’t use rough or abrasive materials

  • Resin can get scratched if it’s in contact with abrasive materials or other items such as keys when it’s in a key ring.

  • Excessive heat, light or moisture can damage or even discolour resin. Normal wear shouldn’t cause problems but avoid leaving it in direct sunlight

  • Wearing your silver jewellery can help to keep it shiny as you will continually wear the tarnish away
