Resin jewellery is hard-wearing but to get the best out of your pieces and ensure they last a lifetime please try to adhere to the following advice. This will keep your pieces looking their best and save you having to pay for the resin jewellery to be repaired or replaced. Some resin jewellery clients don’t follow the instructions and their pieces are fine, but it’s best to be on the safe side.
  • Scrapes

    Try to avoid bumping and scratching your piece as this could damage it. Avoid using tools and doing manual work with the piece on

  • Water

    Do NOT submerge your jewellery pieces in water. Resin is NOT waterproof, only water resistant. So please remember to remove your jewellery before showers, swimming, washing up etc.

  • Heat

    If your piece is exposed to big temperature fluctuations, it might expand and contract and cause the elements inside to separate

  • Sunlight

    Store your jewellery out of direct sunlight. Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can cause the resin to discolour and soften.

  • Smoking

    If your piece is in regular contact with smoke it will usually yellow. However, some of our smoking resin jewellery clients have worn their pieces for years without discolouration.

  • Chemicals

    Avoid exposing your jewellery to harsh chemicals and cleaning products. This includes antibacterial hand sanitiser, perfume, hair spray, cleaning solutions, nail polish remover, chlorine etc.

When Resin Jewellery Care Has Been Forgotten If your piece suffers damage or wear, please get in touch and we will give you a price based on photos.
We ask clients to retain your elements such as breastmilk, because it makes a remake possible when needed. If you haven’t retained the elements, we may be able to do a repair, but can’t guarantee results.
  • Yellowing

    Yellowing is almost always due to resin care rather than the brand or type of resin or insufficient breastmilk preservation.

  • Dullness & Scratches

    If your piece has dulled or been scratched or scraped, we can add a new topcoat layer. For charm beads and orbs, it may be easier to replace the piece completely because the hardware can’t be removed.

Thank you for reading, we will do our best to help if your piece needs repair at the discussed cost.

Silver Jewellery Care Instructions

Silver is a great precious metal to choose for keepsake jewellery and does not need much care.

Tarnishing Most silver will usually tarnish eventually. This often turns the silver black, brown or dark grey but can also have a greenish or blueish hue because of the copper content. Silver will tarnish faster under certain conditions. Sulphur, humidity, air quality (such as living near the sea), even body chemistry will affect how quickly it tarnishes. Coming into contact with egg and oil can tarnish silver faster.

Silver jewellery can be polished with a silver polishing cloth but please avoid the resin area.

We don’t recommend you use an ultrasonic cleaner or cleaning bath because the liquid/chemicals may damage the resin.

Most local jewellers can polish the piece for you and will take care to protect the resin.

Some silver is rhodium plated, which makes it tarnish-free, but that will wear off over time and leave a patchy effect. These pieces need to be re-coated by a specialist who can protect the resin during the plating process.

We use 925 sterling silver where possible.

Scrapes & Scratches – Try to avoid bumping and scratching your piece as this could damage. A professional jeweller can remove scratches but please let them know your piece contains resin.

When Silver Jewellery Has Been Damaged – If your piece has become damaged then it may need to be remade from scratch. We can usually save the resin part and set it in a new piece but please see our resin jewellery care instructions if the resin is also damaged.
