Here are some general guidelines for taking care of your bead crochet jewelry:

Treat your bead crochet pieces the same as you would a piece of fine jewelry.  When wearing your jewelry remember, “last thing on, first thing off.”  Try to keep makeup, perfume, and hairspray off the beads and thread.  If your piece gets damp or wet, gently pat it dry with a soft cloth and allow it to air dry for a time to be sure there is no moisture remaining on the thread or beads.
