How do I maintain sterling silver?

Sterling silver jewelry, wire and components will tarnish. It should be kept away from detergents, harsh chemicals and perfumes. Never wear your jewelry while swimming or bathing. Chlorine darkens the silver. If it has tarnished, it can be cleaned with a soft polishing cloth (available from most jewelers) or a paste of baking soda and water (scrub gently with a soft toothbrush) will do the job. Liquid silver polish can be used, but make sure not to get it on the lampwork beads or semi-precious stones. When not wearing your sterling silver jewelry, keep it in the anti-tarnish bag that I enclose with every piece. This hinders tarnishing. Please remember that my pieces are for gentle wear. Even though the glass beads have been annealed for added strength and durability, they will break if handled improperly (being dropped on a hard ceramic or cement floor, for example).
