Cleaning

To ensure your gorgeous piece of Natalie Salisbury Jewellery remains in its best condition, it is advised to clean it regularly. This is especially true for gold-plated pieces which should be regularly cleaned due to the adverse affect constant perspiration can have on the plating.

It is advised not to rub the item too hard with a polishing cloth as this is liable to take off some of the plating. To clean well and clean thoroughly, the easiest and simplest way is with an old or soft toothbrush, some mild soap (ensure the soap is free from whitening agents or abrasives), and some warm water.

Gently brush the piece in the warm soapy water with in small circular strokes to ensure any dirt is removed from within the delicate lace patterning or the branch-like forms. This basic process is most effective for rings, where hand cream, perspiration (see above) and other general household and beauty products can get caught more easily.

And hey presto! A (nearly) brand new piece of jewellery!

If you have any trouble with this process or have further questions then don't hesitate to get in touch - we are always happy to help!

Natalie is excited to announce that she will be taking a break from her jewellery making business this Autumn and Winter due to the arrival of her first child! However, whilst she is certain that new parenthood will come with many trials she does intend to be back in the workshop and ready for orders in the run up to Christmas 2017. She does apologise for any inconveniences caused, and asks you to check the stockists page if you are eager to purchase a piece of her handmade jewellery. Alternatively, if you do have have any questions for her then please do email her at natalie@nsj.co.nz. It may take her a little longer to get back to you than usual, but she can assure you of a response. Many thanks for your understanding and support…Natalie Salisbury Jewellery.
