It depends on the scent. I have been creating scented food jewelry and miniatures for over 10 years and I still have pieces that smell just as strong as they did when I created them. From my experience, I have notice that the darker scents like grape, cinnamon, chocolate, gingerbread, pumpkin spice, tend to last longer than the fruitier scents. Most of my past customers have reported some scents between 6 months to a year. Again it greatly depends on how you care for you jewelry.
Please note: If you have a lifetime warranty, you are able to receive re-scenting services for the lifetime of the product if needed. Please read the warranty information in the article below.
I incorporate a skin safe fragrance oil into the polymer clay and bake it to seal in the scent. The scent can last from 6 months to forever depending on the style. I have several YouTube videos showing my scenting process.
Unless you request otherwise, my jewelry findings are hypoallergenic surgical steel, titanium or 14kt gold which is great for sensitive ears and very resistant to tarnishing. The foods themselves are made from polymer clay, which turns into a plastic after baking, so the pieces are water resistant, and I have worn my jewelry in the shower without causing harm. Please remove jewelry when swimming in a chlorinated pool as the chemicals may cause discoloration. Avoid leaving the pieces in direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time as this can cause fading, and if you choose to use a commercial metal polish on the findings, dip only the metal portions into the cleaner, as it can damage the finish of the polymer clay. To prolong the scent, store in the plastic bag that came with the jewelry.
Unless otherwise noted in the individual item description, all of my earring wires and posts are hypoallergenic, lead-free surgical steel. While surgical steel does contain nickel, the nickel is so tightly bound within the metal that it rarely triggers allergic reactions, unlike many other base metal findings and even sterling silver, which is sometimes alloyed with nickel. I have extreme nickel sensitivities, and surgical steel is one of the few metals that I can safely wear for extended periods of time, which is why I have chosen to use it in my pieces. My necklace and bracelet chains are nickel-free, silver plated brass, unless otherwise noted. If you'd like to substitute out a different metal, just contact me and I'll be happy to accommodate you. I also offer 14kt gold, titanium and sterling silver findings. They are usually located in the listing as an option. If you do not see it as an option, please contact me before you purchase.
To extend the life of your scented jewelry, I recommend storing it in the plastic bag it came with when not in use. When wearing your jewelry, try to avoid swimming and showering. If you have lost the scent in your jewelry and would like to have it re-scented, please contact me directly at email@example.com
