Caring for your piece
Treat me with care
Although our pieces are made for everyday wear, they are still delicate pieces of jewellery.
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.
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.
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.
