1) Avoid direct contact with fluid like water, swimming in a pool, sea water, spa, chemicials (spray, perfume, lotion) etc.. These can cause colour changes and even structural damages
2) Remove jewellery when performing tasks and other activities e.g. sports/exercising, house cleaning, cooking, gardening etc.
3) Clean your jewellery regularly with care to maintain the shine and lusture. Best method will be to use silver polishing cloth. This can be purchased from us.
4) Air your jewellery overnight after wearing but not in an air-conditioned environment. Store your jewellery in box or pouch to prevent it from tarnishing. In general, jewellery tarnish when it is not worn, especially for silver and gold.
5) Store your jewellery in non humid environment to prevent oxidation.
6) Store each piece of jewellery in a separate box or pouch to prevent abrasion, especially silver and gold plated should be kept away from each other.

Laura Willett, a small business consultant and faculty member in the finance department at Bentley College said "Many businesses mistakenly under-price their products attempting to convince the consumer that their product is the least expensive alternative hoping to drive up volume; but more often than not it is simply perceived as 'cheap." This is something all crafters/hobbyists should take note of. Don't underprice your handmade items just because you think that you are doing it as a past time or that it is difficult to decide on hourly rate for labour cost. There are many who are doing it for a living and struggling to stay afloat.
Key factors to consider when working out your pricing are labour cost, material cost, overhead cost like rental/commission, utilities, transportation and other logistics. As a starting point, look to your competitors for inspiration. How do your prices compare to other freelancers/companies within the handmade industry? Are your products priced too high or too low compared to theirs? What kind of materials are they using?
Some consumers may be less concerned with price and willing to pay a large amount of money if they know that the product is top quality. However, others may only be interested in making frugal purchases in an effort to find decent goods at a reasonable price. Yet, there are others that just love to bargain. What type of consumer are you? Leave me your feedback in the comment below.
