Handcrafted arts have become more accessible than ever before. Thanks to internet connectivity, artisans are able to showcase and sell their creations around the globe. The individual designs of every specially made piece of art are easily within reach of anyone looking for something unique. In this world, jewelry creators and admirers alike can share in the beautiful creativity that goes into every piece we choose to adorn. For anyone who adores handcrafted jewelry, here are just three amazing things you should know about what goes into it.
When you invest in handcrafted jewelry, you want it to last! There are few things more frustrating than opening up a drawer full of tangled jewelry. Save yourself some trouble and set up an easy storage system. Taking care of your handmade jewelry will help it last forever.
If you are wearing your jewelry often, you have to deal with tarnishing. Moisture and metal don’t work well together. Your lotions, cosmetics, or just regular washing can cause ugly discolorations on your favorite pieces. To prevent this, try to minimize your handmade jewelry’s contact with water. Take all of it off when you wash your hands or shower. Carry a plastic bag with you or stash one in your bathroom so you can keep your pieces away from water but not have to worry about losing them.
