Caring for your paw print keepsakes
I am delighted you have captured your pet’s unique paw prints and understand caring for your paw print keepsakes is very important so here is some helpful information.
Caring for your personalised silver paw print jewellery
During creation your special jewellery has undergone a process of antiquing to highlight the paw print, paw pad print and personalisation details. The best way to clean your paw print jewellery is to use an impregnated polishing cloth to rub over the silver. However, please make sure you avoid polishing the paw print or paw pad print area as this will remove the antiquing.
I understand caring for your paw print keepsakes is very important so when you order silver paw print jewellery from Cheeky Little Prints I provide you with a polishing cloth so you can keep your beautiful jewellery sparkling. Liquid silver cleaners should also be avoided, as these will remove the antiquing and change the appearance of the silver. As with all jewellery, it is advisable to remove it when using household cleaning products as these harsh chemicals can mark the sterling silver.
If you wear your jewellery on a daily basis, or it comes into contact with other metals (e.g. keys), it is likely to scratch and show signs of wear, and detail may fade. This is normal and to be expected. To help with caring for your paw print keepsakes you are advised to regularly check all jewellery findings and fittings (e.g. chain and bracelet clasps, jump rings, cufflinks and key rings) to ensure they have not been subjected to wear and tear. If you feel any of your jump rings or clasps need some attention or tightening, please get in touch and I will be happy to help you.
Caring for your personalised paw print stamp
Each stamp is handmade and you may notice slight differences or variations in wood colour. These slight variations all add to the charming character of your keepsake and help make it totally unique. You can use your personalised paw print stamp with ink pads of different colours to add variety and fun to your stamping 🙂 If you would like to clean your stamp you can either wipe it with a damp cloth or use a little bit of water and soap/washing up liquid and a soft scrubbing brush, but they shouldn’t need cleaning very often. Take care not to get the stamp very wet as the label may get wet and soggy!
To help with caring for your paw print keepsakes you can store your personalised paw print stamp in the organza bag supplied.
