How to Store Your Handmade Jewelry

How to Store Your Handmade Jewelry

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.

Beaded Anklets & The Distinctive Touch Of Swarovski Crystals

Beaded Anklets & The Distinctive Touch Of Swarovski Crystals

As jewelry artists, we understand that there's more to our craft than just vanity or symbolic status. Every piece has a story and personality that expresses itself in its own unique way. Every necklace, bracelet, and pair of earrings says something different, which is why every bead and gem is a crucial piece of the overall statement. Anklets exemplify this fact perfectly, simply by being worn elsewhere on the body apart from other jewelry. This gives anklets a personality all their own and provides artisans a completely new world in which to experiment with their craft.

The History of Czech Glass Beads

Czech glass beads are certainly one of the most beautiful and sought after styles of beads, as they feature unique styles, patterns, and hues simply not found in any other types of beads. The history of Czech glass beads is actually as rich as the beauty of the beads themselves. Find out more about the captivating history of Czech glass beads here:

Early History

Glass beads were being crafted in Bohemia, which is the present day Czech republic, as early as 250 B.C. By the 900’s (A.D.) handcrafted glass beads were being put inside of some tombs. And, in the 1200’s, several glass factories, that were sometimes used to make beads for rosaries, were opened as locals began moving into the northern mountains of the area.
