About

A jewellery studio by the sea in Ireland !

We are Sandra and Andre (aka Lulu and Belle) a globetrotting couple of adventurers hailing from Ireland and Germany.

Our adventure in jewellery began in late 2014 when we began selling a collection of vintage costume jewellery, that we had hand-picked in antique markets on travels together around Europe. Building a website, learning how to take great photos, finding and repairing unique vintage jewellery was above all a fun hobby and we loved working together!

The idea to set up our little home studio to make a hand-made collection of our own pieces was a natural progression. Andre's training as a carpenter gives him an eye for detail and precision and he's more than comfortable handling jeweller's hammer and torch. I'm at home with all of the creative jobs - sketching new designs, sourcing the prettiest gemstones, losing hours with my camera photographing our pieces and recording Lulu and Belle's story on our blog http://bit.ly/1SHdm0V

We are happiest when we're sitting side by side, looping wire and hand stamping our custom pieces. It's a beautiful life for two hopeless romantics and we hope that we can continue working together for many more years to come!

Please note - we've taken a lot of time over the photography for our shop and we retain all copyright of our images. We will consider the use of any of our images in whole or in part, without our permission, as an infringement of this legal copyright. Please contact us before using any of the images in our shop.

It has been a long held dream for us to sell our own collection of handmade jewellery, lovingly crafted in our seaside studio in Ireland. We are delighted to have the chance to connect with people who love handmade things and to send our little pretty packages around the world.

CARE OF YOUR JEWELLERY

To keep your jewellery in great condition and to prevent tarnish we recommend the following:
- Take your item off for sports, swimming and before bed
- Store your jewellery items in an air-tight container or jewellery box
- Store items carefully to prevent scratching
- Prevent your jewellery from coming into contact with perfume, moisturiser or lotions which can all cause tarnish. Ensure that these are well absorbed before wearing your jewellery.

CLEANING YOUR JEWELLERY

Sterling Silver:
It is natural for some tarnishing of sterling silver over time due to exposure to the elements.
Use a silver polishing cloth to remove light tarnish.
For heavier tarnish clean your jewellery with 2 tablespoons of baking soda in hot water. Leave to soak until the piece is bright and shiny. Rinse in cold water and buff with a very soft, cotton cloth.

Gold Filled:
Although Gold Filled jewellry will not tarnish, it will get dirty. The oils from your skin transfer to the metal and need to be washed off from time to time. The easiest way to care for it is to scrub it with an old soft toothbrush and a mild dish washing liquid. Rinse it well and lay on a towel to dry. Be sure it is completely dry before storing.
