Remember that jewelry, especially glass jewelry is delicate. Often a favorite bracelet that is worn regularly will need to be re-strung as general maintenance. If an item breaks within one year, I will repair it free of charge provided I am able to obtain the same materials. Otherwise, I will substitue materials.
Please use backings, even with fish hook wires, when you proudly wear your Robanne's Beads! However, accidents happen. If I have the same materials, I will gladly make another earring for you at half the cost. Otherwise, we can re-create as best as possible for the full price. Please email me with a photo of your lonesome earring, and I'll try to make a mate. RobannesBeads@comcast.net
Care and Cleaning
Be sure to take your jewelry off before hand washing or bathing. Exposure to detergents degrades the stringing components over time. Know that perfumes, lotions and make-up can discolor sterling silver. Be sure your beauty products are dry, then put on your jewelry. Store sterling silver in airtight zip lock type bags. Jewelry with fresh water pearls are especially delicate. Do not expose them to water or other solutions. Clean with a damp jewelers cloth. Sterling can be cleaned with a treated polishing cloth.
