Stop Tarnish, Fading, Allergies and Skin Discoloration even on Plated Metals

We know that copper, brass and silver jewelry is gorgeous but it is frustrating to keep polished and jewelry with patinas can fade without protection. Many jewelry designers and manufacturers are using less expensive metals these days but have problems with tarnish, fingerprints and skin discoloration & skin allergies.

Here are some actual jewelry pieces that are protected with ProtectaClear.

Pendant with Patina with ProtectaClear

As a jewelry designer, I work solely in brass, inks, acrylic and enamel paints. I was very frustrated when I would complete a clean vibrant piece of jewelry and it would turn dark and the inks would loose the luminence that I intended. One of my brass component suppliers suggested I try ProtectaClear and I was just thrilled with the results. The color mediums I use keep its freshness and the brass stays clean, bright and tarnish free. I sell my jewelry with confidence knowing that it will stay beautiful over time.

Case Study: This wrapped copper and silver bracelet was coated with ProtectaClear and worn every day by a woman whose skin has always discolored when wearing copper. After 6 weeks of daily wearing, there is no wear on the metal and no darkening or discoloration of the skin.

I have used ProtectaClear and once I learn how to hang the product after I have coated it I will be very Happy. I strung the beads on a piece of copper wire dipped them and then hung them upside-down. I used bead spacers in-between the beads and that did not work all that well. Dipping the beads works OK but then Instead of hanging them end to end to dry I need to space them and turn the copper wire so they hang, as on a coat hanger. ProtectaClear does put on a great shine and I will use it on a lot of my designs. Thanks!

ProtectaClear can be used to protect jewelry that has patina from Liver of Sulfer and other patina's or even flamed copper. Here is a picture of silver beads which one bead has been treated with Liver of Sulfer.

Can you tell which bead is coated with ProtectaClear?

I tried ProtectaClear on some earrings and was pretty impressed. Since I sell my earrings, I need something that I know will last. So I used your "ProtectaClear" coating on my earrings. I will say that your product was described on your website as " self leveling" and it definitely is. The final result comes out pretty nice (IMHO). I like your product & will continue using it.Thanks for developing it - ProtectaClear answered a problem I was having. Cheers.

I have used the ProtectaClear coating I purchased from you recently. Your coating product did exactly what I wanted it to do with my jewelry items which was coat and protect them fabulously! Thank you for a prompt delivery and great easy to use product. Respectfully, De'Andrea P. ~~Walks In Spirit Creations~~.

"I use ProtectaClear as a coating and stiffening for my (small beads) beaded jewelry, specifically earrings. The product was recommended by a designer, in one of her YouTube videos, for use to stiffen small beads woven together; thereby preserving the shape of the design so it does not collapse over time due to use. Dipping the piece into ProtectaClear, then allowing it to cure over at least 24 hours, provides the desired outcome and maintains the shape of the jewelry. I was truly excited how well the product worked after my first attempt and I continue to use it for other designs. The instructions are clear, concise, and followed to the "letter" and I have had fantastic results! I am thrilled with this product! Thank you for your product and follow up." Jamie Y.

"My Protectaclear arrived quickly. I use 2 coats on my handmade hammered copper bracelets to maintain the liver of sulfur patina and also to prevent the wearers' wrists from turning green! I also use it on stacking copper rings and scarf rings that I make. Thanks for providing a product that puts just the right finishing touch on my copper jewelry!" Vicki D. Santa Rosa, CA

"Thanks for quick service in sending. This was a birthday gift for a friend to use for stiffening bead work. ProtectaClear works great and I've been happy with the results on my bead work." Bonnie T.

Yes, my order did arrive!! And very quickly too! I absolutely LOVE your product and use it on all my jewelry. Thank you for your excellent customer service! Thanks, Gretchen
