Store your earrings in a cotton bag or a box on their own - save the box they come in for easy storage.
Keep your earrings stored in a dry environment. Your clay is waterproof but shouldn't be submerged in water and avoid contact with perfumes etc
If you get make up or dirt on your clay, clean it off with a damp cloth. For more stubborn marks you can use some nail varnish remover on a cotton bud. Use gentle strokes over the effected area with the cotton bud until the mark disappears then wipe with a clean damp cloth and dry with a clean towel.
Brushed Brass: The brushed brass pieces are all sanded, cleaned and polished by me and then treated with a light coating to prevent a patina forming however if your piece comes into contact with certain substances this can damage the coating - eg perfume, make up, creams etc
If you require, I offer a brass cleaning service. To find out more about this service you can email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Hammered Brass: Brass is a natural material and by nature, forms a patina over time. If you would like to bring the shine back to your brass from a light patina you can rub the surface with a jewellery cloth. I can provide suitable jewellery cloths free of charge - simply email me email@example.com to request yours.
If the patina is a little more heavy you can clean at home using a metal polish such as Brasso or you can use the following home recipe:
Combine the juice of half a lemon with a teaspoon of baking soda and stir until it becomes a paste. Apply the paste to your brass with a soft cloth. If the tarnish is heavy, let the piece sit with the paste on it for 30 minutes. Rinse with warm water and dry.
