I love that the cats are not exactly the same. I think the two pose complement each other very well. They're a little bit bigger than I expected, but they look very cute on.

Silver pendant is beautiful and I love it. Poor communication from seller meant I was sent the wrong necklace and I bought one the right size from another Etsy seller.

Seabreeze Silver on Etsy

I studied under the late Christopher Headley Neave at O’Halloran Hill CFE in the late 70s. It took around 30 years of working on jewellery part-time and working in offices the rest of the time before I ended up on the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula and finally found the time to give my passion 100% of my time. Even that didn't last. I'm still on the Fleureiu but the jewellery work is back to part time for the moment.

I work mainly with Sterling Silver which I love for it’s malleability and its warm/cool lustre. The ideas for my work are many and varied, animals and nature are constant inspirations, but if I have a problem with ideas, it is where to start first. Hence the varied techniques and designs. I hope one day to find a path for my craft that is truly the essence of me and less influenced by trends and the need to earn a living. Meanwhile I must impose my practicing on whoever may wish to look. Some of it ain’t too bad.

I take payments via PayPal or Credit Card, but will accept money orders or cheques. Items will not be shipped until funds are received or cleared.
Items will be shipped within 72 hours of confirmation of payment and/or clearing of funds if they are as listed.

For adjustment of sizes and special requests I would allow at least 4 weeks for manufacture and shipping. It might be less depending on circumstances.

I ship within Australia by express post (overnight) since it is tracked for items over $50 otherwise items will be sent by ordinary mail.

If you require any insurance or any other changes in shipping or postage please contact me before purchasing and I will adjust the details on the item and reserve it for you.
Refunds and Exchanges
I would prefer that all sales be final. Refunds/exchanges are only offered if an item is faulty. If an item is faulty you must contact me within 3 days of receipt for a refund/exchange. I may consider offering 50% back if you don't like it after all. Sorry about being tough on returns but I think I've supplied enough information for you to make a reasonable decision on your purchase. If anything, most of my items look better in real life than in the photos. I'm too poor to afford a professional photographer.
Additional policies and FAQs
When ordering rings PLEASE DO NOT use on-line ring sizing - paper sizers that can be printed from web sites are notoriously inaccurate. It is always best to have your finger sized using metal ring sizers. Most jewellers will happily measure your finger for you.

Please contact me for any reason in which I can assist you. I always return messages, happily.
