Treat me with care

Our pieces are made for everyday wear, but they are still delicate pieces of jewellery and should be treated with care. 


To help prolong the life of your Teeny Bead Co piece, reduce contact with chemicals (like perfumes and lotions) and remove it before you take a bath or shower. Be particularly careful with anklets when putting on and taking off trousers.

Silk Thread

If your piece is made with our classic silk thread, you need to be extra careful with your piece. Although silk is extremely strong for its size, it's a natural fibre and therefore can degrade over time, especially when it's often in contact with water and chemicals such as lotions and perfumes.

Stainless Steel Thread

If you chose our stronger stainless steel thread, you'll be able to get your piece wet. We'd still not recommend doing this too much as it may affect the metal fixings on your piece.

Choose the right size

If your piece is too tight, not only will it be uncomfortable, but it'll also put strain on the fixings and the thread which can result in snapping. You'll also find that, when it gets wet, the silk thread contracts and shrinks your piece slightly which can make your piece even smaller. (Don't worry, it goes back to normal when it's dry.)

Top tip: When you're measuring for your piece, make sure you can still comfortably fit a finger between the string and your neck, wrist or ankle.

See our sizing guide for more information about picking the right size.
