All Amuleto pieces are handmade designs created to support your daily life journey. They are your precious metal friends! As with all things precious, you should take care to protect them and keep them in a special place when not been worn.
WHILE WEARING YOUR JEWELLERY
Exposure to water, lotions, body oils, cosmetics, perfumes, excessive heat and humidity, chlorine and/or cleaning agents may cause discolouration and affect the finish of the jewellery. Keep all jewellery products away from perfume, moisturiser or hairspray (its better to put your jewellery on last when you are getting dressed). Pieces may be delicate so care should be taken when wearing. If your jewellery has delicate natural elements like horse hair or feathers, please do not shower or go swimming with it.
When you are not wearing your beautiful Amuleto Designs jewellery, keep your “little friends” stored in a safe place. A good idea is to store it in an airtight plastic bag. This will prevent tarnishing and scratching. Hang earrings on an earring stand or place them inside a jewellery box.
HOW TO CLEAN YOUR JEWELLERY
Silver jewellery naturally darkens over time. Silver cleaning solutions and cloths are available in the market. However, a simple and effective way to clean your silver jewellery is as follows:
- Heat a cup of water (don’t boil, just warm up the water)
- Cover the bottom of a small bowl with aluminium foil.
- Pour hot water into bowl. Add 1 tablespoon salt, 1 tablespoon baking soda, and 1 tablespoon dish detergent into bowl. Stir gently to dissolve salts.
- Place your jewellery on top of foil and let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes.
- Rinse your jewellery in cool water and buff it dry with a soft cloth. Discard solution after use and make a new batch next time.
Note: If your piece has a matt finish, please note that over time, with wear, it will become glossy. If you would like to retain the matt look, you can use a kitchen scourer to brush the surface in one direction.
HOW TO ENERGETICALLY CLEANSE YOUR JEWELLERY
You will know when its time to energetically cleanse, recharge or simply renew the intention you set on your ring, bangle, necklace etc. Trust your intuition! This is when you get to play the magician, witch or wizard! Here are some suggestions for doing so:
1 Smudge with white sage
2 Hold the piece in your hands and meditate for a few minutes. Visualise the old energy, be grateful for any lessons it may have brought and see it being release from the piece. Then, call in the new energy, including your intention and goal. Imagine it bathing or infusing the piece of jewellery. Notice your body sensations, and any visions of colour, smells or sounds. Be grateful and feel the support. See it happening and when you are ready, you can again wear your Amuleto.
3 Go dancing! Yes, dance wild and celebrate yourself. Do it in a pure, healthy environment, smoke and drug free. Put on some music you like and dance with, for and around your piece of jewellery. Have fun, feel the joy and receive the love!
