Unboxing your jewelry:
First things first: When you receive your bracelet or necklace, use scissors to carefully snip it off of the card that it's attached to. Never tear your jewelry off of the card.
Do this every day:
Every time you put your Wishbeads jewelry on or take it off, give the brass cylinder a twist to tighten it. Not only will you ensure that your cylinder will stay closed, but you're also physically connecting to your wish by touching the cylinder. What you focus on, you attract!
You can polish your Wishbeads with a soft, dry cloth. If necessary, you can lightly dampen and polish with a cloth or soft toothbrush, but take care that no water gets inside the brass cylinder.
The brass cylinder:
It's natural for the brass cylinder to tarnish slightly with time. While some of our fans love the look of this natural patina, you can polish with a soft, dry cloth if you'd like to brighten up the brass.
The elastic band:
Handle your wishes with care! We use the highest quality jewelry elastic, but your bracelet still may not stand up to tearing it roughly off the card or excessive stretching. Lotions, chemicals, and cleaning products can also degrade the elastic over time and make it more likely to break.
Can my Wishbeads bracelet or necklace get wet?
Mermaids, take note: Your Wishbeads jewelry should do just fine if you get caught in the rain, but please take it off before showering, swimming, or doing the dishes. The cylinder is not water-tight, and your Wishpaper may get soggy if your jewelry is submerged. No one wants wet wishes!
