How to care for your jewelry

By nature, Sterling Silver will tarnish over time. Just ask your mom!!

The best way to prevent excess tarnish is by caring for your silver jewelry properly. We recommend the following:

1. When you are not wearing your jewelry, store tem in a sealed bag, for example, in a Ziplock bag. if you do not want to use a bag but rather your jewelry box, insert a little piece of street chalk or a little bag you often get in a box of new shoes or a new purse!                

2. Please DO NOT wear your jewelry while showering, swimming (especially not in the ocean!), washing dishes, applying perfume, engaging in sports or working out. I know you want to look good while working out (!) but refrain yourself from wearing your best necklace!

3. After wearing your jewelry, we recommend wiping them with a non-abrasive jewelry polishing cloth to remove dirt and tarnish.

4. To fully remove tarnish and any stains on your silver jewelry, it is recommended using any anti-tarnish silver polish that can be found at your local supermarket or pharmacy. Be sure to follow the instructions on the bottle and to always wear gloves when working with silver polish.

5. If using a liquid silver polish, we recommend dipping a Q-Tip into the polish and cleaning the jewelry in a delicate, circular movement to remove the tarnish and dirt. But don't forget to rinse off the polish and dry immediately.

We hope you will find this useful and take care of yourself and your jewelry!!!

A picture is worth a thousand words...

I never thought I would be a slave to my camera...I just finished a custom order and now I cannot send the picture to my client as I forgot my camera on the boat! Arggggggh!

A picture is worth a thousand words, that's a saying in French and right now, I am living it! No matter how many words I use to explain the necklace I have just finished, I cannot replace the picture!

Anyhow, Isabelle, here is a picture of a cluster with similar beads - not all the same as some of the greys did not match the purle hearts - I have made yours with only a cluster, no bars, a bit bigger and with the hearts, which are the main course!!!

Moving on to new things?

Well, now that summer is finally here in Montreal, I am back on my sewing machine again!

I finally finished my dress that I started just days before Chloé was born! Woot! Woot!

Now, I just need an occasion to wear it!
