There are many different brands of jewelry cleaners
on the market today. Depending on how your
jewelry is made, these products may or may not be
safe for your jewelry wholesale! Before using
jewelry cleaner, take a good long look at the jewelry
and try to determine what it is made of.
First, any jewelry that has pieces glued on should
not be soaked in jewelry cleaner. Instead, use a
little Woolite mixed with water, and soak the piece
for just a couple of minutes. Remove the piece from
the mixture and dry it immediately – but gently –
with a soft cloth. Use a soft toothbrush to gently
scrub small crevices.
Avoid soaking pearls! They may come from the
ocean – but water from your tap may damage them.
Simply wipe the pearl with a damp cloth, then use
a polishing cloth to give it back its shine. Never
soak any of your jewelry overnight. It isn’t
necessary, and it may harm the jewelry wholesale.
Again, it is important to know what gems are used
in your jewelry, and how the piece was constructed
before determining how you will clean it.

Since ancient times body jewelry has been a part of the culture and heritage of different religions. It has been known to be an essential part of the clothing and appearance of the people in many regions of the world. At different parts of time through the centuries it was also used to signify the class demarcations prevalent in society at that point of time.
How ever in recent times it has acquired a new dimension. Body jewelry has never been in such high demand. The human body is not merely a body, it is a piece of art which has its own innate beauty and body jewelry is the perfect way to enhance the beauty of your body. Not only can you decorate your body with it, but you can also use it to bring into focus certain parts of your body or to enhance the beauty of certain parts.
Body jewelry items are usually for particular places on the human body. These more common places for body jewelry include the nose, eyebrow, nipple, ear lobes and naval, along with ear plugs (both curved and straight barbells). As fashion trends keep changing, the various parts where you can use body jewelry and the manner in which you can use it also keeps changing.
Nose body jewelry comes either in the classic captive circular barbell, or in the form of a nose screw. The nose screw can either be jeweled or plain, depending upon your preference. Eyebrow body jewelry is similar to that of the nose, in the sense that the eyebrow body jewelry also has the small captive barbell. This is now being made with a dangling, sparkling charm to hang from the upper most part of your eyebrow barbell. The eyebrow body jewelry can be either curved or straight with a charm of any style or color dangling from the top.
Nipple and naval body jewelry is one of the more popular types of body jewelry, it sis especially popular amongst the youth or the more adventurous in spirit. Nipple body jewelry includes the nipple barbells and the nipple shields. Naval body jewelry designs are also endless.
Whatever kind of body jewelry you use or wear it is important to keep some pointers in mind. Such as what kind of material is that specific body jewelry made off, is your skin allergic to it and is the piercing for the body jewelry done in a sterile and antiseptic environment.
This kind of jewelry is available for almost every conceivable part of your body. There are endless styles, designs, colors and textures in which body jewelry is made. What ever your budget, whether it is low end or high end; body jewelry is available in every range to suit your pocket as well as your tastes.
Body jewelry is not merely a decorative fixture; it is also a personal style statement. You can use it to bring attention or to take away attention from a specific part of your body. It is quite in vogue these days and has been in existence since time immemorial. If you have the attitude and the panache you can carry of any kind of body jewelry.

jewelry wholesale is a big business, and you
definitely need a catalog of your offerings! Making
a catalog isn’t as difficult as you might think. First,
you have two options: an online catalog or a print
catalog. The choice is yours.
Overall, an online catalog is the least expensive
way to advertise your jewelry wholesale company –
but with all of the online jewelry stores and online
wholesalers, it may not be the most effective way
to make sales. A print catalog should strongly be
considered for a direct mailing.
If you make your own jewelry, you will need to get
good pictures of the jewelry – preferably laid on a
velvet setting. Black or blue velvet will bring out the
jewelry the most. You can take these pictures
yourself with a digital camera, or have a
professional take the photographs. It is cheaper to
do it yourself, of course.
Load the pictures up onto your computer, and use
publishing software, such as Microsoft Publisher to
design and layout your catalog. This may take a
little time and patience, but it is much cheaper than
having someone else do it.
Since you will need hundreds, if not thousands of
copies of your catalog, your best bet will be to save
the catalog on a CD and take it to a print shop that
can handle the job. This will cost money –
especially since the pages need to be glossy and
in color, and the catalog will need to be bound –
but this expense will be well worth it if you will be
doing a mass direct mailing.
In order to do a mass direct mailing, you simply
find a reputable company who either sells mailing
lists or does the mailing for you. You can actually
request lists of mailing addresses where the person
has expressed an interest in purchasing wholesale
jewelry – or any other criteria that you set. In most
cases, it is best to have the company handle the
mailing for you. They will get the best rates on the
mailing because they can use the bulk mail rate.
Make sure that you use a reputable printer, and a
reputable direct mail company! This is an investment
in the future of your business, and your jewelry
wholesale catalog needs to be perfect in every way –
and the mailing needs to go off without a hitch!

The magnetic jewelry clasp is practical to offer a convenience way to everyone man and women who love to wear jewelry beside it beautifulness anda elegance.
Magnetic Jewelry Clasp
Jewelry designers have to plan out every aspect of the process when start making a jewelry such as:
1. Colors of stones and beads,
2. Type of metal (such as gold or silver)
3. Materials that need to be used.
Many jewelers will not neglect the clasp used to close their piece when design their bracelets and necklaces - from a simple knot to close a string of beads to a magnetic jewelry clasp.
No matter what type of categories of jewelry you have either from those pieces that are made of precious metal, such as gold, silver and platinum, and those that are not. You need a way to close it. This is where jewelry clasps come in. The clasps on your jewelry can be made of the same material as the rest of the piece, or it can be made of a less expensive material.
This are most common type of jewelry clasp:
1. The spring ring clasp.
This is the round clasp that is often found on bracelets and necklaces of all types, from the most expensive diamond jewelry to the cheapest plastic beaded necklace. A tiny spring found inside the ring allows it to open and close with a flick of the mechanism.
2. The lobster claw clasp.
This clasp, which looks like a claw, uses a mechanism to open and close as well, but there is no spring involved. Both of these clasps are found in various metals.
If you have trouble working standard clasps, a good way to solve this problem is by getting a magnetic jewelry clasp. This is an adapter that fits onto any other jewelry clasp (spring ring or lobster claw) by way of a connector. They can come in silver or gold styles, so that the magnetic clasp matches the jewelry. Once affixed to the average clasp, these magnetic adapters make it much easier to close and open pieces of jewelry, because the only action needed is to gently pull apart or place together the two halves of the clasp.
Having trouble working jewelry clasps doesn't mean you can't wear your favorite necklace or bracelet. A magnetic jewelry clasp adapter can make your jewelry wearable again, no matter how it closed before.

I've a doubt on how firmly and strong do this clasp clever hold together?
What type of beads did you attach with them?
And finally, would you recommend magnetic jewelry clasp that claim to be clasp clever?
"Personally, I have used magnetic clasp's for making spiral bracelets using seed beads and size 8 seed beads. I have found them to hold the bracelets together nicely and have not (so far anyway, touch wood), come undone. I have put the bracelet on and really forgotten about it, not giving it any special treatment or being weary of the magentic clasp. They are easy to put on, no fiddling about trying to pinch open one end whilst trying to locate the other as before. Cannot speak for any other makes but I bought mine from Creative Crafts. You can find there web site at www.creativecraft.co.uk. I can recommend the ones they sell as the magnetic piece is quite strongly magnetised."
"I bought a bracelet with a magnetic clasp from Kleeneezee and had to return it the following day as the clasp came undone at the first little knock. I think the weight of the item may have been the problem as it was a magnetic bracelet. I have avoided this type of clasp since."
"Haven't had a chance to make anything with them yet, but they do stick together quite strongly. Apparently some of these magnetic clasps are a lot stronger than others, and it seems to depend on who makes them. Some people said they found the magnetic clasps pulled seed bead bracelets out of alignment. I think this was referring to loomed or woven style bracelets."
"They always seem to be very popular and haven't had any complaints about them, although for bracelets it might be advisable to also use a safety chain (which makes a nice addition to most bracelets) so that you don't loose your bracelet on supermarket trolleys /car doors etc!"
"I personally wouldn't use magnetic clasps for bracelets, they can fly off too easily. I end up making most of my bracelets with Stretch Magic (Stretch Elastic). But I do use the magnetic clasps for necklaces."

Magnetic jewelry clasp, you can fasten your jewelry very easily wihtout hassle.
Magnetic jewelry clasps hold tight yet separate with ease. Each clasp requires 2 round or square magnetic beads on each end. The magnets are the last to be strung and then the string is knotted.
The clasp can be separated at either end and will snap together again when held close to the beads, yet it will not come apart with an accidental tug.
Elderly people, those with arthritis, joint problems, or hand injures can still fasten their own bracelets, anklets, and necklaces with ease.

Your magnetic jewelry clasp can't be easily magnetized to be much stronger than it is already, unless you feel for sure that it was once stronger and has really been been demagnetized.
Better to replace the magnet (magnetic jewelry clasp) with a high energy type. If you pick an appropriate size you can probably mount it with epoxy.
Find someone who has a Sonicare electric toothbrush. They replace the brushes periodically. Each discarded brush has two little supermagnets 0.1" x 0.2" x 0.4". These are STRONG magnets. You could slice off a smaller piece to suit with a Dremel and abrasive wheel or diamond wheel. Go slow, don't let it get too hot. Might be best to do it wet. You might wrap the magnet in paper so most of the dust from the cut can be removed with the paper. Then epoxy or superglue the wee bit to your jewellry.
You might be able to just nick the magnet with the diamond wheel, then crack it with pliers. Less dust.
Some of those are so powerful. I'm not sure Id be comfortable having a woman I care about using a pair to hold her earrings on with. The blood blister would be hidious.
Hope this help you to get the idea how to re-magnetize your magnetic jewelry clasp.

Languishing your favorite jewelry that has a broken magnetic clasp in your jewelry box will not make it better. Most types of magnetic clasps can be easily replace with a new one.
Here is the instruction how to repair your magnetic jewelry clasp
Step 1: Determine if it's the actual magnetic clasp is broken.
Usually, a magnetic clasp will fall off because the jump ring (a simple metal ring with a small cut on one side) has broken or stretched open. Replace a broken jump ring or crimp a loose ring closed.
Step 2: Identify the broken clasp type.
There are several types. The most common are spring-rings and lobster clasps. A simple round ring that opens by pulling back on a small, spring-loaded knob is a spring-ring. Lobster clasps are spring-loaded, but open by pushing down on the clasp. Their shape resembles a lobster claw. If the clasp is connected to the necklace by a jump ring, it is easy to replace. If the clasp is soldered on, you will need professional help.
Step 3: Purchase a replacement magnetic jewelry clasp
Clasps are available online and at your local craft supply store. Make sure the style and color will match your jewelry. If you choose, you can upgrade the style of clasp that will be easier to use.
Step 4: Disconnect the old magnetic jewelry clasp from the jewelry.
Use a pair of pliers to hold one side of the jump ring connecting the old clasp. Then use a pair of needle nose pliers to open the jump ring. Open the jump ring by twisting it, not spreading it. Spreading will weaken the ring.
Step 5: Attach the new clasp.
Hook the new clasp through the jump ring and twist the jump ring closed. Make sure the jump ring is closed tightly, or the clasp may slip off through the gap. Repeat for the other end of the jewelry.

Clever Clasp - Never Fight With Another Tiny Stubborn Necklace or Bracelet Clasp Again! (Magnetic Jewelry Clasp)
Magnetic Jewelry Clasp
Most of you have seen the Clever Clasp advertised on TV. I paid this commercial no attention when I first saw it, but my Wife zeroed in the first time she saw it.
You see, she's all the time complaining that the clasp's on her necklaces and bracelets are too small or too hard to get hooked. She has some nice pieces of jewelry that she no longer wears because the clasp are too small or just too hard to get hooked.
She relies on me to hook the clasp a lot of the time now. I have huge hands and poor eyesight. Not a combination made for dealing with tiny stubborn jewelry clasp.
She dropped me several strong hints that she wanted a set of Clever Clasp for Mothers Day. I was skeptical, however she was persistent that she had to have those magnetic jewelry clasp for Mothers Day or else. We all know that if Momma's not happy, no ones happy. Needless to say, she got a set of Clever Clasp for Mothers Day.
She absolutely loves her set, in fact she actually ordered Clever Clasp for all her necklaces and bracelets.
I believe one thing that sets Clever Clasp away from other magnetic jewelry clasp is the strength of the magnets and the durability of the clasp. I figured they'd fail or break in short order, but the Clever Clasp my wife purchased have been very durable.
Another side benefit that my Wife loves about these clasp are that they allow her to wear some of her bracelets and necklaces that were just a tad short or had broken clasp.
I've also put these on our 4 year old's play necklaces and bracelets. She was all the time running into our home Office saying "Daddy, hook my necklace!" With these magnetic clasp, she can hook her own necklaces and bracelets and I get some piece and quiet!
Don is the Webmaster at The Biggest Loser forums. He's written an in depth review of the Clever Clasp after his Wife commented that she wanted a set for Mothers Day. He felt like others had the same problems that his wife had and so he posted his review on the blog. Click here to read the Clever Clasp review.
