Care instructions come packaged with each piece, but generally are as follows: Remember that these pieces are delicate and require a gentle hand when being manipulated. Don’t store your piece in areas with high humidity or heat, and do not subject it to direct contact with water or hair care products. This can tarnish the metal, potentially damage the clay or make the crystals cloudy. Each piece comes with a custom bag and box to store it safely and preserve your pretty heirloom piece. Clay can chip or break if the petals are bent or a piece is dropped. We advise all clients to use clean fingers when touching flowers and pass that along to makeup artists as well. Foundation and other makeup products stain. Keep pieces away from hairspray, perfumes, and other mists/sprays.
