Since most pendant parts are vintage, they have already aged gracefully and will retain their beauty for more years to come. As necessary, carefully clean your pendant with a soft jewelry polishing cloth. Crocheted "chain" part of necklaces may be spritzed with water (avoid water spray on pendant!) and laid out on a towel to dry. As with any jewelry you own, please apply lotions, perfumes, or hairspray before putting on your jewelry to avoid harsh chemicals coming into contact with your treasures.
Are all of your pieces handmade?
Yes! I handcraft each piece in my Leesburg, Virginia studio.
