Polymer clay is made up of polymer (a type of plastic) and clay. When kneaded and baked properly, the polymer fuses with the clay creating a durable and lightweight medium. However, it should be handled gently and with care.
Do not wet polymer clay earrings. Do not drop as this can break the piece. Avoid using chemicals, solvents, perfume, jewelry cleaners, or hairspray near the earrings.
In the case that it becomes dirty, wipe with a soft, damp cloth. You may also use a cotton ear swab dipped in acetone to wipe lightly on the surface of the earring--this does NOT apply to earrings that are hand painted, have gold leaf, or are coated with varnish.
If your piece is varnished, hand painted, has gold leaf, is glittered--use a baby wipe to gently clean the surface of the earring.
When not in use, store polymer clay jewelry in a box or a separate compartment. Keep away from sharp objects to avoid scratching the surface. This will help with the preservation of each handmade piece.
Please DO NOT wet brass as this will cause the piece to tarnish. Keep away from the sunlight or extreme heat. In the case the piece does tarnish, clean with a baby wipe or brasso metal polish.
