Note from shop owner To my wonderful customers and supporters, thank you for your patience and kind messages as I recover from a case of influenza and pneumonia. At the present time I am focusing entirely on recovery and regaining full health. At this stage I am unable to predict exactly when I will reopen my online selling venue. Although I hope this to be in the coming weeks.

All current orders will be processed and will ship in the new protracted and agreed upon time frame specified in your purchase email.

If you are currently completing a payment plan the store will be temporarily opened at the agreed time as per your Etsy convo, to allow for finalisation.

Should you need to contact me during this store closure, I can be reached at: helloaritaghedini [!at] gmail.com

I apologise for any disappointment or inconvenience due to this health issue.

Thanks you for your kind understanding.

These classic hoops have been given a fresh makeover. Inspired by rock formations and the trail markings on nature walks. Constructed in Solid 100% recycled/reclaimed Sterling Silver, they are also kind to the environment. herbfeet

About

Classic, timeless jewellery handcrafted in the most inspiring setting.

High in the mountains above beautiful Hobart Tasmania, among towering gum trees, native Australian animals and birds, the tap of a hammer and the hiss of flame can be heard as fine jewellery is created in the most tranquil of settings.

Here in my studio I create jewellery inspired by nature, travel, architecture and geometry. My work is crafted in both Solid Sterling Silver and Gold (100% recycled), incorporating high quality freshwater pearls and semi precious gemstones that I carefully source both locally and internationally. Much of my work features traditional metalsmithing techniques.

I hold formal qualifications in the Arts, having attained a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a Diploma of Visual Arts (Jewellery). I feel so incredibly blessed to be able to share my art with the world and work in a field that I am truly passionate about.

I have a penchant for all things French, and particularly love creating both dreamy pieces with a touch of whimsy and classic, modern jewellery.

Reducing my environmental footprint is important to me. As such the precious metal used in my work is reclaimed (100% recycled) and sourced from a reputable Australian company with sound environmental policies and practices. The creation of my pieces feature age old metalsmithing techniques and where possible I primarily use hand tools to cut, shape, file and sand.

Growing up, creativity and artistic pursuits were very much encouraged in my family. Both my grandmother and grandfather were very skilled crafts people, making a living from art. My mum is an accomplished painter who sells her works and also teaches art. Like these special people I too hope to share my artistic creations for the enjoyment of others.

Art provides me with much joy and fulfillment.

I hope my creations similarly bring much happiness and enjoyment to you!

Care instructions

A NOTE ABOUT OXIDISED STERLING SILVER:

Oxidising is a process which turns the surface of a Sterling Silver piece to a charcoal grey tone.

This treatment is a surface treatment and does not change the inherent properties of the metal. As with any surface treatment it will wear over time and with use, to a slightly lighter smoky grey. This process is beautiful and gives character and a unique appeal to your special handmade piece.

The process of wear will happen at varying speeds and is dependent on how often the piece is worn and how much it contacts surfaces, clothing and skin.

Each oxidised sterling silver piece has been sealed with a wax to prolong it's patina.
