Earring care: With all of our earrings, we recommend removal for showers, swimming or any extended exposure to water or sweat. Polymer clay is flexible, but can break, dent or chip. Remove your earrings if engaging in rigorous activity. Avoid dropping or excessive pressure. Clean with a damp cloth. Pat dry. Please do not use rubbing alcohol or acetone, as it will eat away any design, coating and even the clay itself.
