Try not wear your jewelry while doing dishes, cleaning the house, swimming in the pool, taking a shower or forgetting it is in your pocket and you find it in the washing machine.
The best way I try to keep my jewelry happy is to just store it in a cool dry area. With Sterling Silver components once in a while give it a good wipe with a silver polish cloth, cleaners and dips will dull the finish of the Sterling Silver.
The wire on your bracelet will stretch a tad if you wear it every day, (guesstimate) (6 months) drop me a line. Re-Stringing is possible and a small fee will be charged, unless parts have gone missing.
Please contact me with a picture so that a cost estimate can be determined.
To keep your bracelet in tip-top shape, roll the beads over your wrist, stretching the elastic as little as possible. Your stretch bracelets are being exposed to chemicals that are breaking down the elastic over time if you never take then off... from shampoo and soaps in the shower, hair sprays, perfume, body lotions, and sunscreen these chemicals will eventually help break down and weaken the elastic over time causing your bracelet to snap. Trust me you will gasp and possibly like Humpty Dumpty never find all the pieces to put it back together again.
