Are jewels resistant?
The proposed finishes are mainly made of stainless steel. They do not rust and are very resistant. You can swim them in the water, bathe yourself from time to time, but be sure to rinse them with fresh water and gently dry them with an absorbent towel in order to preserve the appearance of the jewelry.
The prototypes of the models proposed were worn and tested for several weeks by the designer before being offered, in order to offer a certain comfort when wearing in addition to esthetism and to check the solidity of the assembly.
You can travel, live your adventures in complete freedom, but a jewel is still a delicate accessory, which must be taken care of and respected.
Some models are meant to accompany you on a daily basis, others will have a more casual purpose.
Are the glass beads fragile ?
The beads are manufactured in such a way as to respect the demanding and delicate material. They are made hot and then baked in the oven for a minimum of hours, in order to eliminate thermal shocks which can weaken a part not annealed. Beads are solid glass objects, when they fall to the ground, they bounce because they can absorb shocks.
Glass beads jewels is therefore not as fragile as we thinks and the ornaments will have a good longevity, especially if it is taken care of.
