Care & Maintenance

Glass

I recommend storing your jewelry in a soft, protected environment as it can be scratched by other hard items and glass can break. (I know, shocking!) Most smaller items would actually be difficult to break, but larger pieces such as statement rings, bar pendants and home accessories, are more at risk. If you travel with KK pieces, pack them safe and snug within a firm-sided box or case. To clean, wipe with any microfiber cloth. To really make it shine, wipe with rubbing alcohol and a lint-free cloth. 

Sterling Silver

You can avoid tarnish on your sterling silver jewelry by wearing your pieces often. It's a good idea to remove jewelry when doing household chores. Lotions, cosmetics, hair spray and hair products, and perfumes are also hard on sterling and can contribute to tarnishing. Polishing your silver works well when the tarnish is not severe. Silver is soft and can become scratched easily. Sterling silver elements can be polished with a proper silver cloth, but a lint-free flannel, microfiber, or other soft nonabrasive cloth will do as well. Do not use paper towels or tissues to polish your sterling silver as they contain fibers that can scratch.

Leather

The leather I use is meant to age with time. You can try to gently spot clean a glaring issue with a very small amount of mild dishwashing soap and water. Just be aware that sometimes "the medicine is worse than the ailment", meaning the attempt to clean could result in a different type of unevenness. Over time most scratches and minor spots will recede as the entire piece of leather develops it's own character. Enjoy the way your wearing of the item further customizes the piece for you!
