This statement jewelry was handcrafted from high-quality toxins free air dry clay – not polymer clay, therefore it has more of a matte finish. The beads and heart were hand dyed using high-quality Metallic Acrylic Paint. Once the beads dried out, the waterproof varnish was applied. The beads are strung on a long black cord, the length can be 2 inches adjusted.
The jewelry is lightweight and necklace is a wearable piece of art and is definitely water resistant, but it should be handled with care and stored in a separate box.
I recommend cleaning with a damp soft cloth and no lasting contacts with water (like swimming or bathing).
Care Label: Avoid contact with water and organic chemicals like perfume sprays. Avoid using velvet boxes and pack them in airtight boxes. After use wipes the jewelry with a soft cotton cloth.
