Here are some handy tips on keeping your Copper Lane jewellery looking fresh.
Store your Copper Lane gems in a dry & clean place; preferably in a jewellery box or earring board. Store away from direct sun light.
Please remove all your jewellery before entering into water......they don't like to get wet.
Clean plain (no glitter or foil) polymer clay earrings & beads by using a slightly damp baby wipe or cloth. Dry before use.
All polymer clay beads & earrings with foil/glitter are glazed for protection. Clean only with a damp cloth with water. No chemicals please as this can eat into the glaze.
Do NOT bend, drop or throw your Copper Lane goodies. This weakens the clay and can break.
Avoid contact with perfumes, hairspray, makeup & moisturizers. These may cause discolouration to your jewellery.
Please keep your jewellery safe....... they don’t like to be thrown around.
No refunds or replacements will be given for any jewellery that has been damaged from the above.
After many attempts of gluing, I have finally found a tough glue to secure the earrings backings, however, please do not stand, throw or bend you earrings as this will weaken the post. Please keep your earrings in a safe and secure place. Copper Lane Creations does not take any responsibility for any damages if they are mistreated.
Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc and will naturally tarnish when exposed to oxygen. Tarnishing is actually a protective layer for the brass. Keeping it shiny is easy.
Polish by using a jewellery polishing cloth. Brass cleaner can be used but sparingly. Apply a very small amount (less then a pea size) to a jewellery or microfibre cloth and clean gently. Apply only to the brass piece. Do not apply brass cleaner to polymer clay.
To avoid tarnishing store in a dry space away from direct sunlight and air vent. Its best to keep in a jewellery box with a lid.
IMPORTANT SAFETY WARNING
DO NOT allow any children to play with, wear or chew on your jewellery. They are NOT for teething purposes at all and will break when chewed on - which is a potential choking hazard. NEVER leave a child unsupervised around your jewellery, beads are a small and could be a SERIOUS choking hazard.
