Store Properly: When you’re not wearing your bead jewelry, store it in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. It’s best to keep your jewelry in a jewelry box or a soft pouch to prevent dust and scratches.
Keep Separated: To prevent beads from scratching each other, consider storing each piece of jewelry separately or using soft jewelry pouches to keep them from coming into contact.
Gentle Cleaning: Clean your beaded jewelry with a soft, damp cloth to remove dirt, sweat, or oils. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners, as they can damage the beads or their finish.
Take Off Before Activities: Remove your jewelry before engaging in physical activities, such as sports or heavy lifting, as this can lead to damage.
Avoid Contact with Chemicals: Avoid exposing your jewelry to chemicals, such as perfumes, lotions and household cleaning products. These substances can affect the beads’ color and luster.
Wear with Care: Be mindful of how you wear your beaded jewelry. Avoid tugging or pulling on it, and be cautious when taking it on and off.
Recharge Stones: Some semi-precious gemstones, like amethyst or quartz, may benefit from being “recharged” in the moonlight or with certain crystals.
