<h1><span style="font-weight: 400;"><br /></span><strong>Wood Jewelry</strong></h1>
<p style="text-align: left;"><a href="https://tgv8lqtbdcn965ck-2008686.shopifypreview.com/collections/wood"><img alt="" src="//cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0200/8686/files/IMG_1271_grande.jpg?v=1540269524" style="float: none;" /></a></p>
<p><b>Never soak wood jewelry because this causes it to swell and dry out. </b><span style="font-weight: 400;">Wood jewelry is water resistant but should not be immersed in water or kept in high humidity. If your wood jewelry does get wet, blot dry immediately. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;"> </span></p>
<p><b>Dry wiping</b></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Simply wipe wood jewelry gently with a tissue or cotton pad. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;"> </span></p>
<p><b>Wiping with oils</b></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Alternatively, you could clean your wood jewelry with oil. To do this, use a soft cotton cloth to buff in the direction of the wood grain. You can also use a dab of beeswax or wood jewelry wax to bring up the shine; do not overuse as this causes unsightly build-ups.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;"> </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">After cleaning, take some wood jewelry wax and put it on a small piece of soft cloth. Then, rub the jewelry to prevent cracks from drying out. Once the wax is in the wood, shine the jewelry with a soft, dry cloth. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;"> </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Note that wood will darken in colour over time, especially after oil treatments. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;"> </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">When wearing, avoid the use of hair spray, perfumes, lotions, soaps, insect repellents, sunscreens or any harsh chemicals which cause discoloration and damage. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;"> </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">When not worn, do not leave your wood jewelry exposed to direct sunlight or extreme temperatures. You can store wood jewelry in an airtight bag at room temperature.</span></p>

<h1><strong>Silver, Steel, Brass &amp; Stone Jewelry</strong></h1>
<p style="text-align: left;"><a href="https://tgv8lqtbdcn965ck-2008686.shopifypreview.com/collections/new"><img alt="" src="//cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0200/8686/files/2018-0911-6_grande.jpg?v=1540269967" style="float: none;" width="586" height="758" /></a></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Do not spray perfumes or put on creams while wearing silver, steel, brass and stone jewelry. They are highly sensitive to chemicals and liquids, and may oxidise or change in colour. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;"> </span></p>
<p><b>Brass jewelry</b> </p>
<p style="text-align: left;"><a href="https://tgv8lqtbdcn965ck-2008686.shopifypreview.com/collections/brass"><img alt="" src="//cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0200/8686/files/IMG_2289_grande.jpg?v=1540269995" style="float: none;" /></a></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Never exercise or swim with your brass jewelry because this causes tarnishing. To avoid scratches, wrap your brass jewelry in a soft cloth after cleaning or keep it in a jewelry box separate from other types of jewelry. </span></p>
