1. You can wipe oil stains or grease from the polymer clay earrings using baby wipes. Please do not scratch your earrings because that could damage them. Be careful with the texture of the fabric you are using to wipe the stains. Be kind to your piece of art. I recently wiped off make up satins form this arch earring and it worked.

2. When you take your earrings off after they have brought you lots of compliments during the day, put the backings/nuts on the earring immediately so you don’t lose them.

3. Always store your earring in a cool dry place that you can remember haha. I’m one of those people who keeps things in ‘safe’ places but has no idea what the ‘safe’ place was when I need to wear my earrings. If possible, get a cute earring jewelry holder for your vanity and display your art.

4. If you are travelling with your earrings, I highly recommend wrapping them in a piece of towel so that they do not bend while your luggage is being handled. Btw, it does not have to be a towel. You can wrap the earring in some tissue then wrap it in a soft fabric. If you are going somewhere that is sunny and bringing a hat with you, you can also try putting the earring in the hat in the box after wrapping it.
