AVOID WEARING YOUR PIECES IN WATER
This includes the shower, hot tubs, while washing hands, etc. Water can actually take the shine out of the metal, and it can damage delicate stones like opals.
AVOID WEARING AROUND HARSH CHEMICALS AND CLEANERS
This includes things like household cleaners, hair spray, lotions, perfumes, etc. Anything with strong chemicals can tarnish the metal and damage the stones.
STORE PIECES IN A SAFE PLACE
When not wearing your new wire-wrapped pieces, keep them in a safe, dry place. Jewelry boxes and even plastic bags work well.
REMOVE BEFORE INTENSE ACTIVITIES
Do not wear when doing an activity where your jewelry could be snagged, hit, scratched, etc.
USE A JEWELRY CLOTH TO RESHINE
You can always use a jewelry cloth to bring back some shine to your piece.
