How to Care for Your Fine Seed Bead Jewelry

Caring for your jewelry properly is important to extend its life and keep it looking beautiful. Here are some tips to care for your Cheyanne Symone seed bead jewelry!


1. DO NOT cut thread

All of our seed bead earrings are handmade using needle and thread. DO NOT cut the thread. If the unfortunate happens we will repair products, hassle free, anytime. 

2. DO NOT wear in the water

Our seed bead earrings should never be worn swimming or in the bathtub or shower. This damages the stones and beads, loosens adhesive, and also runs the risk of loss of jewelry. 

3. Store away from direct sunlight

Direct sunlight can cause glass seed bead colors to fade. The majority of our glass seed beads are protected with Duracoat®, a durable clear coating to prevent discoloration. However, to keep jewelry vibrant, store out of direct sunlight, preferably in a jewelry bag, box, or jewelry organizer.

The organic cotton bag that comes with each pair of Cheyanne Symone earrings is ideal for storing earrings away from direct sunlight.

4. Spot clean Ultra Suede backing with rubbing alcohol

The majority of our seed bead earrings are backed with cruelty-free Ultra Suede. Rubbing alcohol is great for spot cleaning your Cheyanne Symone earring backs.

To clean the Ultra Suede backing, dab a clean cloth with a small amount of clear rubbing alcohol and gently rub the earring backing. 

5. Clean jewelry with polishing cloth

Jewelry polishing cloths are excellent for wiping away dirt and skin oils that have built up on earrings. This is especially important for 24k gold plated jewelry, or other metal plated jewelry. A light, circular motion is great for buffing and restoring shine.

ALWAYS gently clean jewelry with a soft material so as not to strip dyed coatings and plating from the glass seed beads. 

6. Be mindful when wearing jewelry during vigorous exercise

Our signature jumbo 925 sterling silver earring push backs enhance stability of earrings; however, be mindful if jewelry is worn during vigorous exercise. You run the risk of jewelry falling off and getting lost or damaged. 

*If you are a dancer or performer, we can equip earrings with special backs for an extra layer of security. Email us at for more information.
