CARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR YOUR ‘DANI ART’
All my work is handcrafted with love and passion right here in my studio, in the Yarra Valley (Healesville), Victoria, and with the right care it will remain as beautiful as the day it was created.
To ensure the life of your jewellery, please take note of the following;
– Remove your jewellery before showering, bathing, swimming or applying perfume, hairsprays or body lotions etc. Your jewellery should be the last thing you put on and the first thing you take off!
– Keep your jewellery away from chemicals and out of direct sunlight for long periods of time.
My polymer clay and resin works are created with quality materials and both have been created with care (and many years of experience!) to ensure maximum strength and durability. If your polymer or resin becomes dirty, simply wipe it with a damp cloth or a baby wipe (dry afterwards with a soft cloth). If your polymer clay piece has been sanded and buffed, you can also give it a light rub on a soft cloth or towel which will bring up the shine.
Sterling silver will naturally tarnish over time as a result of exposure to air, water, humidity, skin acidity, etc. The best way to avoid this is to wear your jewellery regularly and store it in an air tight bag with it’s not being worn (all jewellery does need a rest from time to time!). If your jewellery does tarnish, it is usually easily removed with a silver cloth or a Pro Polish Pad. You are also welcome to contact me and I can advise of other ways to clean if serious tarnish has occurred.
Other metals such as copper, brass, etc. may also naturally darken and/or change colour over time. You can usually brighten them up by polishing with a cleaning cloth or polish pad.
Alcohol Ink Artworks have been sealed with several layers of UV resistant spray (plus resin in jewellery items), however it is important to remember that alcohol inks are not UV stable and are not designed to be placed in direct sunlight for long periods of time – they may fade (like many mediums/products).
Clean the frame with a soft cloth and keep away from the elements/steam. You can use a bit of glass cleaner on the front panel if desired.
I hope you enjoy your jewellery/art as much as I have enjoyed creating it.
Love Dani xx
