Additional information

What if I wear a different size than what you have listed for sale?
Most bracelets & necklaces can be resized, or I can make a similar one in your size. If you have an idea for a piece you would like me to design, or you would like an existing piece with some changes, please contact me at mary@mmillsdesigns.com. I do not charge for resizing unless I have to add a substantial amount of sterling silver or crystals.

How do I care for my jewelry?
Sterling Silver will tarnish if left out in the elements. Contact with oxygen and sulfur in the air can cause your silver jewelry to tarnish. A tarnished appearance occurs when sulfur becomes bound to the surface of the silver. I have found that the best way to prevent tarnishing is to store jewelry in a plastic zip top bag with a square of anti-tarnish paper.

Sterling silver is hypo-allergenic and can be worn by most people without overly tarnishing the silver. Also, avoid using toothbrushes or any type of object with bristles to clean your silver jewelry as the bristles may cause permanent scratches. Sterling Silver is a very soft metal and it cannot be repaired once its surface is damaged.

Do not wear your jewelry while showering or washing your hands. You should clean your silver jewelry with a soft cloth or a jewelry cleaning cloth. A jewelry cleaning cloth has two sheets of cotton; the outer layer is for buffing, and the inside layer contains special chemicals that will clean and shine the silver.

Hand polishing silver is the best way to keep silver shiny, and looking like new. You can find jewelry cleaning cloths in both department stores and fine jewelry stores.
