The wood used in my jewellery is walnut and it is finished with a protective layer of wax. If your wooden jewellery gets wet, allow it to dry and reseal it with a thin layer of bees wax or furniture wax applied with a soft cloth. Laminate is a hard wearing material often used for table tops and similar, care needs to be taken to avoid chipping and scratching. It can be wiped down with a damp cloth. Oxidised silver has been treated with a chemical solution to give a dark grey/black finish. This does wear away over time particularly in exposed areas which adds to the character of the piece. Do not place oxidised silver items in a silver dip or use a silver cloth as this will remove the oxidisation.
