SECTION 21 – HOW TO CARE FOR PRODUCT

Your precious jewelry and art pieces are suspended within high quality jewelry grade resin, which cures into something like a hardened plastic. These pieces are fairly strong, and shatter resistant.

This being said, they still need to have special attention, and need to be taken care of carefully. Here are some things to remember about caring for your precious MakaNalu pieces:

Avoid prolonged exposure to UV light. While the resin and coating we use has built in UV resistant properties, too much exposure to UV light can discolor your piece. Avoid storing in direct sunlight, and avoid wearing if you are in a situation where it will be exposed to constant UV light. (If you work outside for example)

Avoid Prolonged exposure to moisture and water. While the resin and metal settings are water resistant, it is still recommended to avoid exposure to moisture or water. This can discolor, weaken, or ruin the integrity and finish of your piece, and can dull a metal setting. Remove your jewelry if you are bathing, showering, swimming, doing dishes, or if you are excessively sweating on a hot day.

Avoid wearing while working with chemicals. Any exposure to cleaning chemicals, pesticides, acids, lotions, perfumes, soaps, or other chemicals can be extremely harmful to your inclusion jewelry. Remove your jewelry if you are using chemicals of any kind.

Cleaning your Jewelry. To clean your inclusion pieces, wipe with a damp microfiber cloth. EVEN PRECIOUS METALS CAN TARNISH DUE TO ITS SURROUNDING ENVIRONMENT AND/OR THE OWNERS PERSONAL SKIN CHEMISTRY. To clean and polish your dulled metal settings, use a special jewelers cloth.

Avoid High Heat Exposure. The resin used in your inclusion jewelry has properties similar to that of a hardened plastic. Like most plastic, it can melt or weaken when exposed to high heat. Exposure to high temperatures and high humidity can weaken, and make your piece pliable. Avoid excessive high heat exposure, and high humidity exposure.

Avoid contact of the product with hot items, and prolonged exposure to direct sunlight.

Piece becomes damaged: If your piece becomes damaged due to normal wear and tear, MakaNalu will not refund or replace your piece.

If your item becomes damaged by no fault of precious relic’s production, no refunds or replacements will be given. You can take a damaged piece to your local jeweler, where they can make major repairs. Small repairs can be done by MakaNalu for a fee, to be quoted on a case by case basis. You are responsible for all shipping costs.

If you feel that your piece has been damaged at the fault of MakaNalu’s production, feel free to contact us. We replace on a case by case basis upon reviewing your piece. I will review your request, and if I feel that this item is caused by production faults, and all the above listed care instructions were followed, I can offer a replacement. Due to the nature of these highly custom and time consuming pieces, No refunds of any kind will ever be given.

If your piece is damaged during shipping, MakaNalu will only replace insured pieces, NO EXCEPTIONS. If you wish to insure your piece, please choose the premium shipping option during checkout.

How to care for wooden, resin products 

Avoid contact of the product with hot items, and prolonged exposure to direct sunlight. If the product has been exposed to a lot of moisture, it is not recommended to dry it with any heat, you must let the product dry naturally

When removal of street dirt, dust, and other contaminants, it is recommended to use special cleaners for wood surfaces. As a secondary cleaning material is used the special cleaning cloth, soft cloth or sponge. It is not recommended to use detergents containing abrasive components or solvents (acids and alkalis).
The surface coating materials always needs care, as the coating lose for a year about 10 microns average layer thickness. This is due to the influence of weather conditions and other destructive factors of weathering, moisture and temperature fluctuations, and radiation (heat and UV), chemical erosion (ozone, industrial exhaust gases, corrosive agents, etc.). Regular treatment of the polishing wax is one of the important elements of caring for wood products
Method of treatment: apply a thin layer of wax on a small area of the surface. Spread and Polish with a soft cloth along the grain of the wood. Between the polishing surface must be cleaned with a soft, damp cloth to remove dust, then immediately remove the remaining moisture with a dry cloth.
