About

It's not chaos it's creativity

I design and create unique pieces of jewellery and gifts. My work is very much based on my surroundings. Incorporating the flora and fauna, landscape and seascape of life on a peninsula.

The range of materials used in my pieces is as diverse as the subject matter each item is based on, from polymer clay to copper, shells to sterling silver.

My metal work uses traditional silversmithing techniques, some of which I learnt in college, most from self teaching and a lot from practise! but all using sheet metal and wire, hammer and flame, it is wonderful, I adore the process from idea to creation.

My Dad used to come home smelling of foundry, then when I was older in art college a lecturer I admired showed me his wedding band, hand made from Clogau gold. So I think it was a combination of memories that made working with metal so right for me.

Where possible I like to use recycled and reclaimed metal and materials. The majority of my work here on Etsy is copper with sterling elements, but all designs can be made in sterling, though the wait time on silver custom items over 7.78g is a quite a few weeks as I have to abide by UK hallmarking law and send the item to assay.

If you would like to see examples of my custom work and processes have a look at my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/MadeByDozy/ also you can get previews of some of the items I will list here on Etsy.

Feel free to message me. I can be found on Facebook, Pinterest, Flickr, and occasionally Folksy, just look for Madebydozy.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalised orders

I will happily consider all custom requests, just pop me a message and we can start planning your idea together. I may require a deposit to cover materials etc. but this is dependant on individual cases and will be pre arranged with you before any work is begun.

Care instructions

Most metals tarnish. Copper dulls to a rich brown, and sterling silver ages so that it has a dark patina. The majority of my pieces are pre-aged, because I love metals that look like they have been recently discovered in an archaeology dig! However if you have purchased a polished piece and would like to maintain the finish, I recommend using a small polishing cloth from time to time to buff the finish to a shine. Polishing cloths can be found at any high street jewellers, though I intend to stock them in future here on Etsy.

Wholesale availability

I will consider all requests for wholesale orders, just pop me a message.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Whereas I do usually package items in gifting boxes or packaging, please be aware that multiple orders will most likely not be individually packaged. I am hoping to add gift boxes to my store in the near future for purchasing alongside orders.

Additional charges VAT / Duty etc.

I am not VAT registered therefore the prices shown are calculated with regards materials, consumables and time.

Any additional charges such as customs fees, import, duty fees etc. will be the responsibility of the buyer to comply with the laws of the country they are importing to,

Returns

I will accept returns with notification within 14 days of receipt and refund, although in the circumstance of a change of heart that refund will exclude post and packaging. Damaged items will be accepted as return but please photograph and send an image of the damage prior to posting, thank you.
