Courage and boldness are hidden treasures that are often buried within us and sometimes it is only in the darkest moments that we can find them to rise up against injustice, pain, hurt, and shame.
The Hidden Treasure collection brings to light Mya Mya’s story, who in the face of injustice and trials, stood up for truth.
At thirteen, Mya Mya was sent to a factory to support her impoverished family. While there, she was lured into a web of lies and was sold to a man who bought her virginity. After this, a series of tragic events befell her. In her darkest moments, she dreamed of freedom, she held onto a hope that one day she would be liberated. Her story of escape sparks hope in so many women who have faced similar exploitation and distortions of reality. Mya Mya continues to remind us that hope does not disappoint.
Properly caring for your Eden Jewelry will ensure a longer wear life. Follow these simple guidelines, and you can enjoy your jewelry for years to come. Avoid wet environments. Do not wear into the shower or store in humid places. Apply lotions, makeup, hairspray, and perfume before putting on your jewelry. Avoid contact with household cleaning products.
CARING FOR STERLING SILVER JEWELRY
Sterling silver jewellery is marked with a 925 stamp. Polish sterling silver pieces with a jewelry polishing cloth. If more attention is needed, immerse in a solution of warm water and mild dishwashing liquid and gently hand wash. A soft toothbrush can also be used for more abrasive cleaning when needed. Thoroughly rinse and completely dry the silver before storing, as moisture contributes to tarnishing. Never clean your jewelry in bleach. If the jewelry contains gemstones or pearls, do not submerge the entire piece into the water. Instead, use a cotton swab with mild dishwashing liquid to wash only the silver.
Note: These instructions are not for silver plated items.
Please see the next section for plated items.
CARING FOR GOLD PLATED STAINLESS STEEL JEWELRY OR SILVER PLATED JEWELRY
To clean your gold plated jewelry at home, use a non-abrasive jewelry cleaner that is safe for plated parts or a mild soap and water. Use a soft cloth to clean the item carefully. After cleaning, rinse with lukewarm water and allow it to dry completely.
Buffing your plated jewelry with a soft cloth is an effective and inexpensive way to keep your pieces lustrous.
Note: Do not use a jewelry polishing cloth, as this can damage the finish.
CARING FOR BRASS JEWELRY
To return brass to its original shine, make a paste of baking soda, water, and lemon juice and gently rub it onto the piece with a soft cloth. Wash the mixture off using running water, then dry and buff with a clean cloth.
CARING FOR STAINLESS STEEL JEWELRY
To clean stainless steel jewelry, pour warm water into a small bowl, and add mild dish washing soap. Dip a soft, lint-free cloth into the soapy water, and gently wipe the stainless steel jewelry with the damp cloth until the piece is clean. When cleaning it, rub the item along its polish lines. Wipe remaining soap off jewelry using a moist cloth dipped in clean water. Dry jewelry well with a clean towel, and then leave to air dry. After it is clean, a jewelry polishing cloth can be used to shine it.
