Over time, the pieces of jewelry that you frequently wear might begin to develop a grimy layer of dirt that can cause even the brightest of your gemstones look dull. To bring back the sparkle you can take your jewelry to a professional to clean it. However, this can take time and get rather expensive. A more convenient, and inexpensive way to clean your jewelry is to make a homemade jewelry cleaner and clean your pieces at home.

Read Before You Start!: Gather your ingredients and line your pan with a sheet of foil (shiny side up). Lay out your dirty jewelry and have each part of the jewelry touch the foil. Not sure why this is important, but apparently it is. (Note: I cleaned my silver, 14k white gold and even a diamond ring without any problems. I don’t recommend using this cleaner on stones like opals and pearls. Not sure what the reaction would be to these types of natural stones.)

The baking soda, salt, and aluminum foil used to create this homemade gold jewelry cleaner generate a chemical exchange called an ion transfer, which is a natural way to clean metals.
Tea tree oil is a known disinfectant and anti-fungal. It isn’t completely necessary to add to your jewelry cleaner, but as I said above, my jewelry can get pretty gross. A small drop of tea-tree oil adds a real antiseptic boost to this homemade jewelry cleaner, so I’m happy to add it. Like I said – I’ve cleaned the chicken coop wearing my wedding rings. I’ll take all of the natural antiseptic power I can get.

Over time, you may notice that your silver jewelry is looking tarnished and you have wondered how to clean a silver necklace or bracelet. Jewelry tarnishes because the sulfur that is present in the air creates a chemical reaction to the silver. This homemade silver cleaner is simple to make and won’t cost you a ton of money because most of the ingredients are ones you probably already have in your pantry.

I’ve been using the foil in the pan, baking soda, & salt with really hot water to clean my silver safely for years. Just make sure the silver is below the water line or it could stain and you won’t be able to remove the line. Large pieces can be cleaned in the bath tub, with the foil laying on the bottom. The foil is required because it causes a reaction with the salt, the soda is to soften the water.
A driftwood hanger is another lovely and very easy craft. The most important thing is finding a piece of driftwood or a fallen tree branch that has a shape and size that you find suitable for the project. Bring it home, clean it and decorate it with some tape and paint. Use some twine to hand it and add some screw-in hooks for the jewelry to hang from.
I tried this and it worked great for some of my pieces (all are 925 silver from Tiffany) but one of my necklaces actually turned darker. Tried the solution two more times and left it to soak, tried to use a polishing cloth after the solution under running water and no change. So bizarre because it worked like magic on all my other silver. Thoughts?
A necklace holder can be as simple as a wooden board with some knobs on it. Actually that’s a pretty good description of the project showcased on asmithofalltrades. As you can probably anticipate, you don’t need many things if you want to make something similar. So go find yourself a board, stain it or paint it, drill two holes in two of its corners so you can hang it and screw in a few knobs. You can mix and match them however you want.
