Jewelry Care

goodbyejohanna jewelry is made to be lightweight, comfortable to wear, and durable. Your jewelry will not shatter when dropped, but please do treat it with care.

  • Store your jewelry in a clean, dry place away from direct sunlight.

  • ​All jewelry (unless stated otherwise) is made with high quality Premo or Soufflé polymer clay, and stainless steel components. 

  • All clay stud pieces are baked with stainless steel stud posts securely embedded into the clay. The studs will not fall out or break. 

  • Polymer clay is a strong and flexible material, but avoid bending it nonetheless. Take extra care with thinner parts and 3D elements, and avoid knocking them against hard surfaces or putting heavy pressure on them.

  • Avoid putting your jewelry in pockets, handbags, or any other places where your jewelry may be knocked about by other items. While your jewelry is made to be durable for regular wear, they can still be scratched, punctured or damaged by other hard or sharp objects.

  • It is fine for your clay jewelry to come into brief contact with water, such as when you are cleaning them. However, continuous or frequent exposure to water can affect the integrity of the clay and cause it to become brittle over time. Wipe your jewelry dry immediately after any washing or cleaning, and do not leave them in damp, humid environments such as bathrooms for prolonged periods of time. 

  • It is not recommended for you to wear your clay jewelry while showering, swimming, or during strenuous physical activity. Avoid wearing your goodbyejohanna jewelry to sleep - especially dangly earrings, and designs with larger hoops or 3D elements.

  • Avoid contact with oils, perfumes, hairsprays, creams, and harsh chemicals etc.

  • To clean your clay jewelry, you may wash them with water and mild soap, or simply wipe with a damp cloth. To remove any dust or dirt that has gathered in crevices such as texture lines (e.g. the lines on petals or leaves), you can either gently pick them out with the tip of a sewing pin/needle or rinse your jewelry under running water while brushing the surface with an old toothbrush or something similar.

  • When storing or transporting your jewelry (for example, if you bring them with you while travelling), avoid situations where the stud posts of one earring could puncture or damage the surface of another. Avoid stacking them on top of one another, especially if there is the possibility that pressure might be applied on the bag/box your earrings are in, potentially causing earring posts or backings to be pressed into other clay surfaces. For travel, I recommend using solid boxes with cushioning material such as bubble wrap, fabric or other soft materials to protect your clay jewelry from contact with sharp objects.

  • Avoid pulling or applying heavy pressure on the earrings, especially metal parts and any thin or 3D elements of your jewelry.
