Mother's Day

Mother’s Day is a holiday honoring motherhood that is observed in different forms throughout the world. The American incarnation of Mother’s Day was created by Anna Jarvis in 1908 and became an official U.S. holiday in 1914. Jarvis would later denounce the holiday’s commercialization and spent the latter part of her life trying to remove it from the calendar. While dates and celebrations vary, Mother’s Day most commonly falls on the second Sunday in May and traditionally involves presenting mothers with flowers, cards and other gifts. Carnations are the flower of choice to give on Mother's Day.

Cleaning and Caring for your Handmade Jewelry

MK Jewels jewelry is unique and each piece is handcrafted by hand. Each piece whether it be sterling silver, gold or plated needs special care in storing and cleaning. We have put together a few suggestions to keep your jewelry looking new and fresh. Storing Store jewelry flat to avoid stretching or twisting. Always store bead necklaces flat because stringing materials may stretch over time. Store jewelry in resealable or special jewelry bags or pouches with anti-tarnish paper to retard tarnish. Jewelry with pearls or opals, as well as some other stones, must be stored in fabric instead of plastic as they need to "breathe." Store jewelry away from sunlight. The sun may fade some gemstones or over heat the jewelry. Caring Protect all jewelry from scratches, sharp blows, chemicals, extreme temperatures, and sunlight. Remove jewelry when doing household or handyman tasks such a gardening, cleaning and household repairs or any strenuous activities. Apply makeup and hairspray before putting on your jewelry. Makeup and hairspray contain chemicals that may affect your jewelry.

Buying Handmade

When you buy handmade products you are buying quality made items. These items are made by a person's hands not produced on an assembly line. You can guarantee a quality item that will more than likely be one of a kind. Handmade items are going to be more pricey due to time involved, products and the quality of the item. Handmade items will last a lifetime and can be passed down as an heirloom. Buying handmade is well worth the price. Let us know your thoughts!
