All SBS pieces are handmade and should be handled with care. We recommend rolling on your bracelets, rather than pulling them on and off. They are not meant to significantly stretch. Please be advised that metals and beads will naturally tarnish and fade over time when exposed to body oils and other natural elements. Exposure to water, body perspiration, cosmetics, and body oils can lead to discoloration. We recommend applying makeup, body lotion, perfume before putting on your SBS jewelry. Remove before bathing, swimming, and before going to bed. To clean and polish SBS jewelry, gently wipe the surface with a soft cloth.
