About maramjewellery

Sales 4,216
On Etsy since 2010

A love affair with Seaglass and Silver....

I've had an obsession with Jewellery from an early age. If ever I was lost in a shop, my mum knew that I'd be with the beads and earrings, and she was always right. I never thought about making it into a career until my Art teacher at High School encouraged my abilities...I hadn't even though it was relevant to my studies. With not a lot of persuasion, I signed myself up for every metalwork/design skill/pottery/photography class going. Anything that I thought would inspire my jewellery making I signed up to.
I was ecstatic to gain a place studying Jewellery and Silversmith in Glasgow, honoured to gain entrance to Edinburgh College of Art. But life happens, somehow Art School and I didn't get along, and the next thing I knew I was in London, working away in Interior Design. My tools were left behind because of my tiny flat.
Then something magical happened. I moved house. My kids were no longer toddlers. I had a teeny space that I called my work desk. And a friend who asked me to fix her ring.....

As well as running my shop, I'm also a team leader in the fabulous Glasgow Etsy Team. I love the community we've built with local makers, and love supporting them on their journey.

Additional policies and FAQs
All items listed contain relevant measurements, please double check sizes before ordering. I am happy to adjust sizing if necessary before dispatch, but once item has been sent, it will be at your own cost to return and resend the item if an error has been made!

Discount Codes: From time to time I offer discount/coupon codes in my shop. Please be aware that the codes are not valid for use for the purchase of Gift Vouchers or on Custom Order products where I have agreed on a price by message. Custom Order purchases may already contain a discount which will be detailed in any conversation we have about the order. Voucher codes can be used freely when spending a maramjewellery gift voucher, just not on the initial purchase of the voucher.

Care of items:
Please take care of your items to ensure a long life for them. It is not recommended that they are immersed in water or get in contact with chemicals such as perfume, hairspray or household cleaners; this will tarnish them and dull the colour. Some of my items are delicate by design, please treat them delicately too.
Cleaning- use of a silver polishing cloth recommended. Please do not use any liquid cleaners on any pieces containing stones as it may damage them.

Frequently asked questions
Coronovirus // Covid-19 update

My shop remains open & I can ship safely whilst adhering to current UK Coronavirus arrangements. Timescales are reduced as I work from home: I'm aiming to ship same day for stock items. International orders temporarily suspended. Extra care will be taken to keep your item clean and sanitized throughout manufacture and packaging. To help Royal Mail implement their no-contact policy I am also shipping everything in my letterbox size boxes so that they can be safely delivered.
In the event that I need to isolate I will contact you to see if you wish to either cancel your order or delay it until safe for manufacture to resume.

How do I measure my ring size?

Simple! Either by popping to a local jeweller to get sized, or ordering one of my low cost ring sizers here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/115323413/ring-sizer-uk-ring-sizer-ring-gauge-uk
Please don't guess, or rely on a measurement taken years ago- it's quicker (and cheaper) to take a bit of time to check than get it resized later. I'd prefer not to work on measurements taken by string/diameters etc as there can be errors made using these methods.

Can you resize my ring?

Yes, if you’ve purchased it from me. I have a listing where you can pay for this service. I resize for free if you've bought a sizer from me in advance of your purchase - please consider buying a sizer and checking your size before ordering a ring. https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/115323413/ring-sizer-uk-ring-measure-ring-gauge
I am unable to resize/repair rings made by anyone else.

Where's my order?

UK:
ALL MAIL IS CURRENTLY SEVERELY IMPACTED BY THE PANDEMIC: please allow extra time for your mail to reach you - up to date info will be on your dispatch message - please check this before contacting to chase.
Please check your order to see making times as the majority of items are made just for you.
INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: please check your order on Etsy for tracking number which was also emailed to you. International orders are occasionally delayed due to circumstances out with my control (weather/customs/security/strikes etc). All orders are sent Royal Mail and updates can be found on their site and on your local mail providers by using the tracking number supplies.

Can you make me something using a different gemstone?

Yes! I love doing custom orders and love choosing new gemstones to work with so please get in touch! However, I don't work with customer sourced gems - sorry!

Do you ship worldwide?

Yes! I regularly ship worldwide. However, there are a small number of countries that I cannot sell to due to limitations or postal prohibitions within that country. Please contact me before ordering if you think this may affect your order.

Hallmarking

My items are mainly made from Sterling Silver, with other metals used occasionally. Items are hallmarked in accordance with The Hallmarking Law 1973. I am registered at Edinburgh Assay Office and all items over a weight of 7.78g bear my maker's mark as well as those required by law. Some of my items are under this weight so do not legally require hallmarking, but it can be added for a small charge. Please contact me before ordering to arrange.

Can you send direct to a friend/family?

Yes! Just mark the order as a gift and add their address at checkout. Remember to add a note to let them know the gift is from you :)
