Materials and Care

Sterling Silver

925 sterling silver, as well as .999 silver will tarnish. Exposure to the air will speed up this process, so keep your silver in a small bag, or you can use a polishing cloth to spiff it back up. Everyday wear will cut down on tarnish, too. There are commercial silver cleaning kits, YouTube or TikTok videos, or you can purchase a Sunshine Polishing Cloth from me for $8.00. Just let me know that you would like one added to your order. (I'm working on adding these to my site.)


Gold is great! It is such a lovely yellow. If you see anything on my site in silver, know that I can also make it in gold (including rose gold)! Just let me know. No need to worry about tarnishing, just wash them with some gentle soap and a cloth when they need it.


Pearls are so amazing, come in so many colors. Their luster can be mesmerizing. They do need some special care, however. Make them the last thing you add before you leave the house and the first thing you take off when you get home. Hairspray, lotions, oils, can all harm them. A special 2-part cement is used (if your pearls are glued on), so heat can loosen them. Noooo! Clean them with water and a soft cloth and keep them in a soft pouch so you can hand them down to your favorite niece (or someone else you love).
