FIVE TIPS THAT WILL HELP YOU TAKE CARE OF TAGUA JEWELS AND MAKE IT LAST FOREVER
An organic product breathes, is unique, is light and feel great over your skin , but it also needs special care. When you wear an organic product, think is not plastic, it is biodegradable, but with proper care will last forever.
Have you seed vintage tagua jewelry? Is from the 40s mainly, it is beaded jewelry in style, has its real color, ivory with not dies and still looks like natural vintage ivory.
With proper care your contemporary tagua nuts jewels can still pass the test of time and look beautiful, bright and unique , everything we create, in Organic Jewelry by Allie we do it not only following fashion trends but also trying to provide with unique aesthetics and quality that you can enjoy for the years to come.
So here our 5 best tips we share with loyal customers like you
- FIRST , THEY NEED SUN PROTECTION:
Think of your organic jewels like your skin, the dies are sensitive to direct and prolonged sun light exposure. In you the sun causes wrinkles and freckles. In the jewels it will fade the dies and make look dull. So, yes you can wear in an outdoors wedding or walking around your cruise to the Caribbean but do not sit for hours to take sun, because long exposure to the sun affects the bright colors of the jewels.
2. SECOND NOT WATER OR HUMIDITY:
Have your jewels handy in a basket in your dresser, in a wooden closed box or in a plastic container. Keep it away from sources of water, the same way you do not put the cosmetics under the sink because the chemicals deteriorate with water is the same for the Organic Jewels. Please do not bath or go to the sauna with your jewels and when you wash your hands take out the ring, because watering and over watering the tagua nuts can make the slices or the rings of the piece susceptible to breakage. Also the cotton strings we use to weave the jewels or the suede cords in the necklace can deteriorate and break with water.
3. STORAGED WITH LOVE :
You can put your jewels in fabric bags over your dresser, in plastic bags in a container close to your bed or do as many of my customers, hang in nails in a frame like a colorful collage of art. The room has to be well aired and indoor lighted and they will last forever and give happiness to your room. In Organic Jewelry by Allie, my mission is create jewels that make you happy.
4. CLEANING YOUR JEWELS IS EASY:
Sun protectors, our own sweat and oils and perfumes, can build up over the nuts and make the piece look dull. Do not use water or strong wood cleaners. Something as simple as an old white t shirt is more than enough to clean your jewel and make it shine again. Also I have extraordinary results using only the second cloth of the silver fabric cleaner. Not the grey part that cleans the metal, but the white second cloth used to make the pieces shine.
5. TRAVELING WITH YOUR JEWELS:
There is one rule to take in account the skinnier or more frail the material the most susceptible to break during a overseas trip. There are pieces like our unchained necklace without metal chain, with some pieces individually sewed sideways to link with the others, petals of tagua nut glued in multidimensional flowers that can be delicate. For travel overseas or in a road trip with your beautiful organic jewels I only recommend you to get a big enough plastic and metal container that you can fit in your suitcase. Please, travel with those gorgeous in your carry own do not forget they are precious and they are not for be forgotten in a big suitcase. Travel with your jewels with the same care you take of a partner in adventure and you can count with them forever. They will go with you to the Caribbean to the Mediterranean, to the Baltic's, to the Galapagos Islands and Alaska and give you the best look, you deserve. As a jewel designer of Organic Jewels I travel with my jewels all over the world. These necklaces and bracelets have many stories to tell!
