About

Creating Sterling Silver Jewellery

Welcome to The Silver Forge ~ where you'll find beautiful limited edition and one of a kind handcrafted sterling silver jewellery. My passion is making well-designed, comfortable, fun, wearable art pieces for people to enjoy every day. The Silver Forge came about as a natural progression from my study of goldsmithing, which prompted me to share my creations as a business.

Smithing jewellery for yourself or for other people is a wonderful thing to do ~ the process of creation encompasses all kinds of aspects, from daydreaming, art drawing, design; to the more physical metal preparation, sawing, filing, emerying, soldering, hammering, bending.

All my pieces are made entirely by hand using traditional methods and tools in my own studio in Brisbane, Australia. Each piece starts life as a throw of silver, which is turned into either sheet or wire by rolling and/or drawing. From there, anything is possible!!

I would be happy to consider any requests for custom orders no matter how small or quirky! I'd be pleased to work with you to create with a design for your dream piece. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at ruthie [!at] thesilverforge.com. Also, please visit my page at www.facebook.com/thesilverforge to keep up to date with new listings and promotions, and check out my blog at www.thesilverforge.com/blog to find out what else is going on!

    I live in Brisbane, Australia. I've been silversmithing since 2005. I believe in kindness as religion, and occasionally turning the music up to 11. I love my family, I love to visit the sea, I love Lego, and I always read books – always.

Welcome to The Silver Forge, where you can shop for unique sterling silver and gemstone jewellery; handcrafted earrings, rings and pendants; all made lovingly by me in my studio in Brisbane, Australia. My passion is making well-designed, comfortable, fun jewellery for people to enjoy every day. I've been silversmithing since 2005. I believe in leaving the smallest eco-footprint possible on our earth, so I'm pleased to say the silver I use is sourced from an eco-friendly manufacturer.

My aim is to make sure that you are completely happy with your purchase. Please feel free to contact me with any questions about my work. As with any handcrafted item, small inconsistencies and imperfections may occur in the creative process - this is part of the joy of owning a unique, handmade piece!

I would be happy to consider any requests for custom orders, no matter how small or quirky! I'd be pleased to work with you to create with a design for your dream piece.

Delivery times are dependent on the mail services! Custom order delivery times will vary depending on the size and complexity of your piece - please ask for an estimate of delivery time at the time of your quote.

If you are unhappy with your purchase in any way, please contact me to see if we can fix the problem. You may return new items within 30 days of delivery for a full refund.
