To ensure that your talisman lasts for years to come, avoid contact with water.
Do not use chemical polishes to polish your pieces as it can remove the patina that makes each piece so unique. A soft cotton cloth or jeweler's cloth is all that you need to gently polish the stones or metal, you can also use a bit of warm soapy water if necessary.
Place your piece in an airtight container or Ziploc bag when not in use.
Some clients like to cleanse and recharge their pieces energetically. Please use dry clearing methods such as sound (singing bowls, chimes, etc) or sacred smoke (incense, palo santo, cedar, etc).
To recharge set your piece on a windowsill overnight to soak up the light of the new or full moon. A special altar space can also be used for recharging.
Please be mindful that the sun can affect the color of certain gemstones, as such it isn't recommended to utilize sunlight for recharging.
