Jewellery Care – Miniature Asian Chef

Jewellery Care


We use high-quality polymer clay and jewellery parts to create our food jewellery.

Polymer Clay

We use popular polymer clay brands such as Fimo, Premo and Sculpey to create our miniature food pieces. 

Earring Posts

Our Surgical Stainless Steel and nickel-free Titanium earring posts are proudly made in the United States. Surgical Stainless Steel is a c
ommon choice of material for biomedical implants, and very durable, unlike common stainless steel earring posts which bend easily. However, Surgical Stainless Steel does contain a small amount of nickel, and may not be suitable if you're allergic to nickel. 

Our nickel-free and hypo-allergenic Titanium earring posts are Titanium ASTM F67 Grade 1 posts, and are nickel free and lead free as required by the EU Nickel Directive. Titanium is suitable for you if you have nickel allergies. The clutch backs provided are also nickel-free. 

Necklaces

We use good quality 316L Stainless Steel chains for necklaces and bracelets and caps for all glass globe necklaces. 

Cufflinks & Rings

Our cufflinks and rings are made of brass metals, and plated with Silver or Gold. 
These metals have a tendency to naturally patina over time, which gives each piece a unique character. To prevent this, simply store in an airtight container.

Here are some simple tips for taking care of your jewellery:

During Wear

Do not shower, soak, or submerge your jewellery and make sure to remove these items when sleeping, working out, cooking, or cleaning. Please avoid wearing perfume around any area where your jewellery may rest and remove completely when using household chemicals. Not doing so may cause corrosion, tarnishing, and discolouration over time. We also recommend removing jewellery while getting dressed/undressed to prevent snagging.

Do not wear your jewellery to swim or the sauna.

Storage

Please store your jewellery safe in its original box or in an airtight polyethylene ziplock bag with all the air squeezed out. Make sure the chain is fastened to prevent tangling; if you find your jewellery becomes tangled, use a little talcum powder to make detangling easier. Never leave your jewellery exposed to sunlight or stored in a damp environment such as a bathroom, doing so can cause discolouration and corrosion.
