About the designer/jeweller: Melaney McCleary

All designs in the Ant Haus range are made by hand from start to finish by jewellery designer, Melaney McCleary in her beautiful studio based in Sydney, Australia. Melaney is obsessed with contemporary design and so creating a label that focuses on contemporary jewellery was a natural step for her.

In every one of her pieces she uses traditional jewellery making techniques to create beautiful, one of a kind designs. She believes in eco-conscious practises and wherever possible uses recycled Sterling Silver and gold. Her use of recycled precious metals does not compromise the quality of the materials she uses but enables the precious metals to be reused and made into beautiful new designs. She also replaces chemicals in her jewellery making processes with natural material alternatives.

She predominately uses Sterling Silver, Rose and Yellow Gold. These materials may be in combination with each other or alone. Contrasting finishes and curves feature strongly in her designs which create interesting movement as the design is worn.
Her designs aren’t about fast fashion. They are thoughtful, timeless pieces that she hopes you will wear everyday and love forever. She takes great joy in hearing from customers who have been wearing her designs everyday for the last 10 years. She is naturally drawn to strong graphic shapes and simplistic forms that sit beautifully when worn. Small details are import and each piece is lovingly crafted with that in mind.

Caring for your Ant Haus Designs Jewellery

Sterling silver matt finish jewellery:

To maintain the matt finish of your new piece of Ant Haus Designs jewellery use a moist green washing up scourer (Scotchbrite is the best brand from the supermarket) and rub in one direction. This will help to remove discolouration and shallow scratches. Gently dry with a soft clean cloth. Please avoid spraying hairspray or perfume near jewellery.

Sterling silver polished jewellery:

To maintain the polished finish of your new piece of Ant Haus Designs jewellery use a soft sterling silver cleaning cloth in an up and down motion. You can also use the sterling silver cleaning cloth on 9ct rose and yellow gold.

Sterling silver tarnishes from the interaction of silver and sulphides in the air. First the tarnish will take on a golden hue, and eventually it will turn black. This is a natural process.

Higher sulphides levels are associated with humidity. The more humid the climate the faster sterling silver will tarnish. It is important to always spray perfume and apply makeup products before you put on your Sterling Silver jewellery as perfume can tarnish the metal.

Simply cleaning sterling silver regularly using the above methods will help to remove any tarnishing.


18ct yellow gold plate over sterling silver jewellery:

To maintain the matt finish of your 18ct yellow gold plate over sterling silver Ant Haus Designs jewellery, softly clean in your hand with washing up detergent and water and dry with a soft clean cloth. Do not rub with a scourer as this will remove gold plate.
