Most of the things we love need a little care to be able to flourish. Here you will find some green solutions to keep your Little Jem looking it's best
Sparkle + Shine
This is the best way I know to clean your Little Jem with household ingredients
1. Boil a cup of water
2. Line a "flat" bowl with aluminum foil,
shiny side up
3. Add a tablespoon of baking soda,
a tablespoon of white vinegar,
and a sprinkle of salt
4. Carefully add the boiling water and
drop the pieces in so that they make
even contact with the foil
5. Let them sit for a few minutes.
6. Once cool enough remove carefully and rinse
The main cause of tarnishing in silver jewellery is it's exposure to oxygen. Store all of your Little Jems in an air tight container to preserve their shine. A zip lock bag works brilliantly. Or roll them in a jewellery roll.
