I have been making jewelry for several years and thought I would offer some of my tips that I have learned along the way!
Tip #1 Do NOT spray perfume, cologne, or hair products while you are wearing your jewelry, especially, necklaces and earrings. These aerosol sprays are very corrosive to many materials. Pearls are especially susceptible. In addition, they coat the metal and beads leaving them dull and sticky.
