A journey began...

For as long as I can remember my hands and heart have been consumed by making.
You could say it started with the making of 'mud pikelets' with my sister in the garden, to dress up costumes for our dog, helping my dad build a home, multiple furniture pieces, birthday cards and then an array of assorted arty gifts for family and friends. My soon to be passion for Jewellery didn't show its face for quite some time.

I started my adventure of making jewellery with the up-cycling of vintage spoons and forks. A past time which creeps back every now and again. Honestly this was the best and most frustrating beginning. I learnt so much, especially how to snap a saw blade. But I learnt quickly and progressed. Patience and perseverance is a skilled well learned in creating.
Realising soon enough the joy for this craftsmanship, I took a couple of weekend courses in Silversmithing, I was and still am smitten with the art....once again I could get my hands dirty and create.
While experimenting I found and started to collect tools, obviously the necessary, but to my enjoyment, I found 'Old' tools to bring back to life. An old broken Blacksmiths Anvil sits proudly in my studio along with a well worn raw hide mallet, a gift from my partner due to me eyeing off his..hehe. Many rusty tools have gone wayside by others, now cleaned and used again.
So where does this copper fit into all this you ask? Well it actually presented itself to me many months before. You know those doors that people say to keep an eye out for? Yep mine opened, ironically and luckily it didn't shut. I had saved the first piece of copper from our renovations to the Garage that was going to be just thrown into the bin. Me being me kept it, "you never know when it may come in handy" (door opening). This piece sat on my bench for ages collecting dust. Time went by, I played, I worked, I thought "what is my angle?" "what am I meant to do?"
Captured by the hues, texture, challenges and the fact that I focus on recycling, Copper Jewellery by Miss Flower Creations began and to this day that first piece sits proudly on my wrist as the first ever Copper Cuff I made.

Care instructions

Copper Care

RAW - these pieces that have been left raw will patina naturally with your skin and air due to it's metal abilities. You can keep clean with a jewellery cloth or soak in some lemon juice and salt for a few minutes then dry with soft cloth.

COATED - pieces have had a clear lacquer coating to help prolong the tarnish effect. If constantly worn and depending on your skin acidity, this can be removed by the friction of the skin. Take care and remove after wearing, wipe over with a jewellery cloth and store in a fabric bag.

Thoroughly dry your piece if in contact with water
