Announcement   Welcome to my Shop! Step inside and see a fine collection of jewellery that will entice and delight you. Shop with confidence in the knowledge that all the jewellery shown here is designed and handmade by me in my tiny rural studio.

WHO IS VIX
VIX Jewellery is elegant, contemporary, fine jewellery, designed and made by me here in my workshop using many different techniques. My jewellery is designed to match your fashionable wardrobe: be it bohemian and sultry or sleek city chic.

FAIR TRADE
Every one involved in the process of my jewellery is paid fairly. I believe very firmly that every business transaction should be a force for good in any community. I would never trade with anyone where I suspect exploitation is taking place. To this end, my stones are only sourced from responsible and fair trade origins. My precious metals are recycled here in my workshop.

GIVING BACK
VIX Jewellery is active in community work by being involved with cat and dog rescue groups. 20% of every sale goes towards the rescue and rehoming of these fur-babies.

METALS and GEMSTONES
Everything is made here in my workshop by me. I love working with high carat gold and silver and using fair trade natural gemstones and organics in my designs. My commitment is, and has always been, to using only ethically sourced materials. I travel overseas as often as I am able and handpick beautiful gemstones. Most of my pieces are hand-drawn and hand-cut, and each one is made with great attention to detail, down to the handmade chains, hooks and clasps. Please also be mindful that being hand-made objects, my pieces also look handmade - don't expect perfection, as each is made to order and only a tiny percentage is ever cast from moulds. The only factory-findings found in my work would be the super-fine cable chains, friction nuts for earrings and some clasps.

LASER ENGRAVING
Prices on request.

HAND ENGRAVING
As the majority of my work is custom with an infinite amount of design possibilities, I do not have a fixed price list. I can, however give you a ballpark idea of what you might expect to pay for certain jobs. These prices are for engraving services only, and do not include the item itself or the return shipping. All prices shown here are in US Dollars.

SIGNET RINGS - Traditional seal ring engraving for impressing into wax. Prices start at $650.
SIGNET RINGS - Relief engraved coat of arms, monogram, etc. Prices start at $750.

Things that affect price: Complexity of design, size of article, difficulty in holding delicate or odd shapes. These all can have an affect of pricing as extra time must be spent making special holding fixtures to secure them for engraving.

I do not engrave plated items.

Due to their extreme hardness and inherent difficulties with engraving, I do not engrave titanium, stainless steel, tungsten jewellery or knife blades.

REPAIRS
I also offer repairs for all VIX jewellery.
Depending on how frequently jewellery is worn, anything that dangles or has movement can wear through.
New earring wires can be purchased for replacement, if necessary.
Rings, bracelets and necklaces worn daily may need similar care and reinforcement.
Pearl and stone necklaces are strung on silk. Traditionally, they are restrung once a year.
Depending on the degree of damage to a piece of jewellery, not all are fixable, due to the availability of stones and materials.
All plated and oxidized jewellery may wear over time, and may be re-plated or re-oxidized.
Jewellery can be washed with mild detergent or can be returned for professional cleaning.

VIX Jewellery has also been shown in exhibitions around Sydney:

2006 Shimmers II at the Washhouse Gallery in Rozelle
2007 Shimmers III at the Washhouse Gallery in Rozelle
2009 Explorations 2009 at the Gaffa Gallery, Surry Hills and Guildford Lane Gallery in Melbourne

Check out my sections where I endeavour to make your selection and shopping experience that much easier. In Weddings, I have rings that will last you a lifetime. If you want something not shown there, just email me and we can discuss new options. I offer a fairly wide price range that I believe will suit most budgets.

All effort is made to show my jewellery in the best light for quality and details. I describe the pieces as faithfully as possible for your benefit and welcome your inquiries and feedback.
