Suddenly so much time on our bejewelled hands! Creativity and productivity is so healing during these quiet days. Here at Anice, we’re coming up with all kinds of of #stayingathome activities to help move us through this moment.
Go through your jewellery box, your little dishes of rings and studs, and anywhere you have lots of necklaces hanging. We forget sometimes all the treasures we’re keeping just at arm’s reach!
Dust and clean. Empty out those jewellery box drawers and wipe ‘em out. If you have fabric busts or velvet display pieces, use a lint roller or dry dish glove and watch your displays magically look like new before your eyes.
Clean your rings. A simple mix of baking soda and water works like a charm and will breathe life into your pieces.
Untangle chains. Put on your favourite show or playlist and give your fingers some idle time to fandangle those tangles back to cascading beauty.
Inventory what you have and divide your at-home haul into categories — jewellery for cleaning, jewellery for repair, jewellery for junk and most of all, jewellery for re-working! We can’t wait to see what you found! #oldtreasuresnewlove
Have a photo shoot! Spice up your social media and take photos of your found pieces. Let’s start a trend #forgotIevenhadthis . Go through your closet and throw together makeshift editorial looks with your lesser worn goods. Get inspired with fresh spring equinox style straight out of your own dressing room.
Give and Donate. To friends and family. To women’s shelters. To anyone in need. We should all be sharing and caring and loving a little more right now, and what better way than with jewels.
Assess your reworkable jewellery. Try to visualize how you could take it apart, manipulate it or what materials within it could look amazing in a new piece. Send us photos! We can’t wait to help get you inspired!
Connect with us. Bringing new life into old pieces is our claim to fame! We would love to help consult you via DM or FaceTime. #oldtreasuresnewlove
