How to care for your jewellery
Treat me with care
Our pieces are made for everyday wear, but they are still delicate pieces of jewellery and should be treated with care. To help prolong the life of your Teeny Bead Co piece, reduce contact with chemicals (like perfumes and lotions) and remove it before you take a bath or shower. Be particularly careful with anklets when putting on and taking off trousers.
Choose the right size
If your piece is too tight, not only will it be uncomfortable, but it'll also put strain on the fixings and the thread which can result in snapping. You'll also find that, when it gets wet, the silk thread contracts and shrinks your piece slightly which can make your piece even smaller. (Don't worry, it goes back to normal when it's dry.)
Top tip: When you're measuring for your piece, make sure you can still comfortably fit a finger between the string or tape measure and your neck, wrist or ankle.
Unless specifically requested, most of our pieces are made with a pure silk thread. Although silk is extremely strong for its size, it's a natural fibre and therefore can degrade over time, especially when it's often in contact with water and chemicals such as lotions and perfumes. To get the most out of your jewellery, avoid sleeping or showering in your silk jewellery and make sure you keep it away from perfume, hairspray and lotions.
