- Most of my work are made out of polymer clay.
- Ear wires and wires are sterling silver;
- Necklace is either sterling silver, 49 strands stainless steel cable coated with nylon, or rubber.
- There many kinds of stone, silver, wood beads added to compliment the polymer.
Polymer is very durable when handled properly. It should be kept from pointed or sharp objects that may scratch the surface. It is flexible to a certain degree and is unlikely to break when dropped. A prolong exposure to
alcohol may do some damages to polymer, hence it's better to put the jewelry on after spraying hair products and perfume.
I have never done anything special to clean the polymer except rinsing it with water when it starts collecting dust.
Sterling silver will require polishing over time to keep the bright shiny look. Keeping them in zip lock bags will help slowing down the tarnishing process. When the silver is embedded in polymer, its safe to dip the whole piece in silver cleaning liquid.
Cables are stainless steel coated with nylon. The stainless steel won't change color, but the nylon might. After wearing it might be good to clean the cable from sweat, body lotion, etc. I use 49 strands stainless steel cable. It's the best quality of its kind. You can coil it without any problem, but don't pinch it or it'll kink.
