There is no question that in what comes to jewellery, you are always looking for unique pieces that speak to us. With so many different pieces available, you don’t want to see the same earrings, bracelets, or necklaces that you are wearing on someone else’s.
At Ertisun, you can find a wide variety of handmade jewellery that is not only beautiful; it is also made with love. Each piece created is inspired by nature. Between the Earth to plants, flowers, sky, wood, sand, and even insects serve as an inspiration.
However, when you buy handmade jewellery, you need to make sure that you take good care of it. The reality is that the maintenance required for handmade jewellery is not always the same and it depends on the materials used. However, it is always important to maintain your unique pieces of jewellery so they can look new for a very long time.
How To Care For Your Copper Jewellery
If you have copper jewellery, the most important thing to keep in mind is that you should clean it occasionally. To do so, you just need to wash it with lukewarm, soapy water. When you’re done, you should then dry it and polish it with a soft cloth. In case you want, you can use a polish but this isn’t required.
Since copper tends to tarnish, you may notice this effect on some of your handmade copper jewellery. In this case, the best thing you can do is to clean your jewellery using a different method. You can either use table salt and vinegar or salt and lemon.
In case you prefer to use table salt and vinegar, you need to pour salt and vinegar over your jewellery and then gently rub this into your piece. You should continue until you see any tarnishing or grim being removed. As soon as you’re done, you just need to rinse with water and then polish the piece with a dry, soft cloth.
In case you prefer to use salt and lemon, the process is very similar. You will also need to pour salt but this time, it should be on half of a lemon. Then, rub your jewellery. You may also pour the salt and squeezed lemon juice onto your jewellery directly if you prefer. No matter which you choose, you will need to gently rub in. When you’re done, just rinse with water and polish with a dry, soft cloth.
Keep in mind that when you are not using your copper jewellery, you should keep it in plastic bags. This way, you will be slowing down the tarnishing process.
As you can see, it is not difficult to maintain your beautiful and unique handmade jewellery in perfect conditions and keep wearing them as if they were new. All it takes is a couple of minutes now and then.
