    I’ve been in the Jewellery Trade all my life and love antique jewels. I went to the Kent Institude of Art & design to study jewellery. I worked as a silversmith for 15 years and have 2 awards from ‘ The Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths ' for my work

    Owner

    Hi and thanks for taking the time to visit my shop. My name is Rebecca and I have been selling antiques and vintage jewellery and other items online for 5 years now. I have a wide and varied background in jewellery and it is one of the passions in my life. I studied jewellery at the Kent Institute of Art and Design and am a qualified and skilled silversmith. I spent 15 years of my career honing these skills and expertise. Although I have hung up my blowtorch as a professional tool, I still keep my hand in with some personal crafting for family and friends! I owned and managed a very successful gallery, Kettle of Fish, in the Lanes district of Norwich for eight years. I sold my own work and that of other crafts people from all over the region. Due to changes in the economy and the arrival of a large, soulless shopping centre I made the decision to close the shop and turn my attention online. Throughout this time I always had an interest in antiques. I have always had a unique eye for a bargain and things of beauty and I made the decision to use these together my skills and experience as a craftsperson to branch out into the antique and vintage market. This has been an incredibly positive and thoroughly enjoyable journey. I genuinely get a thrill out of finding a bargain, researching its history and finding it a new home for it to be loved and cherished by a whole new generation. I have wider experience in the antiques trade having worked as an appraiser and consultant for a local auction house. I have also bought and sold at many antiques fairs, in particular at Covent Garden’s Antique Market in London. On a personal level I love Georgian jewellery, abstract/contemporary jewellery and studio pottery. I get great enjoyment out of photography and love spending time wandering around the beautiful Norfolk countryside with my camera taking weird and wonderful pictures. I have another shop on etsy, this shop is mostly antique jewellery, ephemera and curios: ' www.etsy.com/shop /rebstuff2 ' antique jewellery.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalised orders

I’m happy to reserve items, for 48 hours but can’t hold items for long periods without deposit. If you need a longer payment time, I can arrange a LAYAWAY plan for items over £50 should you need that option.

Care instructions

Some of the jewellery is vintage or antique and has been previously worn. Items may show wear commensurate with their age and any major flaws will be noted. Many enlarged close, detailed photos are taken for you to view. All items are described to the best of my knowledge and I am happy to answer any questions you may have.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I'm happy to ship to anywhere in the world and offer combined shipping on all my listings.
UK customers: Most lower value parcels ( under £29 ) are sent second class mail, any items above that valve, will be sent second class sign for. Orders over £75 will be sent special delivery.
Overseas shipping: Most overseas parcels are sent standard airmail. Its isn't tracked but overseas tracked services, are expensive and start at £10. I send parcels with a value of over £70 by tracked mail, with no extra charge to the customer.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Overseas shipping can sometimes be a bit slow, so please don't worry about delays on shipping, especially if your parcel has to go through customs. I find its very rare for parcel to go missing but snail mail is quite common. If you think there is a problem with a parcel, I will do everything I can to help and I will refund you in full if it doesn't arrive.
