Announcement   *Purple Amethyst is the February Birthstone*

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.

I love making bespoke pieces just for you! Thinking back, this stems from an experience I had years ago when I was just a schoolgirl. I begged my mother to buy me a clutch purse that I had seen in a magazine and that was available from a high-end boutique in Sydney. Didn't matter I was just a kid (with grown-up taste in fashion) I wanted that purse so badly! One day, my mother relented and she and I walked into that shop and there it was, amidst the beautiful and fantastic clothes and accessories that this boutique was famous for. I wanted a white one, and since they didn't have it in white, the only choice was to have one made. So, that is how I got my bespoke white clutch purse. Inside, there is a hand-stitched label, "especially made for Vicki..., Merivale". I was ecstatic then and so happy to still have it now.

I also love working with high carat gold and silver and using natural gemstones and organics in my designs. I am committed to using ethically sourced materials. Every year I travel overseas 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 not cast from moulds. The only factory-findings found in my work would be the super-fine cable chains, friction nuts for earrings and the occasional lobster clasp.

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.

CHARITY WORK
VIX Jewellery is active in charity work. My charities are the Australian Red Cross, RSPCA and the Mini Kitty Commune. I am also involved with a variety of rescue groups in our area. I am committed to the rescue and welfare of unwanted, homeless and abandoned dogs and cats. There are so many that need help and as is often said, someone needs to get up and help. I am someone who can help and my amazing customers help me to help them, as a percentage of every sale goes towards these causes.

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.

To avoid any misunderstanding, please note that a ten percent (10%) re-stocking fee will be incurred in the event of a sale cancellation by the buyer.
