I make all sorts of things from precious metal, artisan lampwork, glass, gemstones and sometimes other bits and pieces I come across.

I coil and cut silver wire to make my chains and maille designs, many of which use patterns passed down through the ages, and love to combine these with lampwork glass created by some amazing artists.

I hope you enjoy looking at these as much as I have enjoyed creating them. I am happy to tailor any piece to your individual size requirements, and also enjoy the challenge of commissions if you would like something extra special.

My findings are created one by one from sheet and wire, and are designed to enhance your own handmade creations. If you'd like a special finding, do get in touch, I love making things especially to suit individual pieces.

As every piece is handmade, please don't expect it to look like it's come from a factory - whilst my style isn't particularly 'organic', the nature of artisan jewellery is to work with our raw materials to create, rather than to try to turn them into a range of identical pieces.

The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Returns and exchange details
Items returned within one week of receipt will be refunded less postage. For hygiene reasons, earrings for pierced ears cannot be be refunded unless faulty. This does not affect your statutory rights. Custom items are non-refundable.
I use the etsy payments system, which gives you a wide range of payment choices and full buyer protection. If I haven't received payment with three days, I will always relist the item - I recognise that you might want to change your mind, but I can't afford not to sell it at all :)
I pack carefully, and ship using Royal Mail first class or international post. This is not a guaranteed or tracked service - if you would like to upgrade your postage, please use the upgrade option. Some more expensive items will be automatically upgraded to Special Delivery or a signed-for Airmail service. I strongly recommend upgrading shipping for any order totalling £50 or more - without this your items are uninsured and I cannot be responsible for non-delivery. Upgraded postage does not ensure an earlier shipping date - I try always to process orders as they are received, and do my best to ship everything as quickly as possible. Sometimes life gets in the way and I will always keep you informed if this happens.
Additional policies and FAQs
Jewellery, whether fine or costume, is not really designed to be worn in the shower, pool or sea. Nor is it a good idea to keep it on for housework or gardening. Prolonged exposure to air, especially in humid conditions, will lead to darkening of most metals. Costume jewellery, such as charm bracelets, lightweight maille and large rings needs to be treated with a certain amount of respect - avoid bashing against hard objects or catching in clothing if possible. If you use perfume, hairspray or sunscreens, it's best to apply these before putting your jewellery on.

The simplest way to avoid tarnish and damage is to store your beautiful things in sealed 'ziploc' type bags. Not the prettiest of solutions, but very effective as they keep out the air that causes metal to oxidise. They will also stop them from bumping together and scratching or damaging metal, stone or glass. Not all glass beads or semi-precious gemstones are entirely colour or lightfast, so it is recommended that you store these in a dark place away from direct sunlight.

Always be gentle! Sterling silver - even items with lampwork beads or stones - can be cleaned with a polishing cloth (I like the Sunshine brand), but as a general rule, the simplest cleaning solution is warm soapy water and a very soft toothbrush. Never use an abrasive cleaner (even toothpaste). Some glass beads (especially the tiniest seed beads) can lose colour when immersed in water.

Copper jewellery will darken to a rich reddish brown very quickly. If you prefer the 'bright new penny' look, just add a tablespoon or two of lemon juice to a cup of water along with a teaspoon of salt and soak the piece for a few minutes. Rinse and dry and it will be as shiny as shiny can be!

Your jewellery may get damaged or broken eventually. I am happy to offer a repair service for any piece purchased from me. Small repairs are undertaken free of charge other than postage cost, provided they are the result of normal wear and tear and not due to jewellery abuse! If more extensive work is needed, I will provide a quotation before starting.

As a UK-based seller, all my sales are made in accordance with UK law. I am not responsible for any local customs duty or tax levied in the country where they buyer is located.

Information I Collect
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of jewellery, for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
• as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
• if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and

I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
• Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
• Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
• Compliance with laws.

Data Retention
I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for no more than four years.
Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
I do not store or process your information outside the UK or EU.
Your Rights
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:
• Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
• Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
• Object. You can object to my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
• Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
