Updates

Such a classic motif. The ladies hand holding flowers comes up beautifully in this necklace design. I have converted many of my stampings into beautiful jewelry. If you see a piece you would like made into a ready to wear piece, just let me know!

Such an unusual piece. A dragon and snake riding an arrow. I have no idea what the symbolism means...but I love it.
Hmmmm. I've seen this guy somewhere before. Many of the stampings I sell are based on mythology and popular arts from 18th century France. I love knowing the origins of a design.

Frequently asked questions

Will the color of my item vary from what is seen in your shop?

Most likely there will be color variation between what is shown on your computer screen and what I see when I photograph the items for sale. There are many reasons for this variation, such as light conditions when photos are taken, settings of your screen and even how you see color. If a color match is critical to you please get in touch and I can give you more information. Otherwise please expect some variation caused by the above reasons, as well as the various finishing methods and patinas I use to treat the items in this shop.

Can I copy the pieces I buy from you?

No you can't.

The components I sell are copyright to the manufacturer. They own the designs and do not allow unauthorised replication. Please respect their artistic rights and not copy the items you buy via any means, whether it's casting, moulds or any other means.

You may of course re-sell the items as-is, or make your own creations to sell to your customers.

Do you offer bulk quantities and wholesale discounts?

Yes, I can offer wholesale prices for bulk orders. Please get in touch via Etsy convo with your requirements and I will let you know the prices and minimum order quantity.

Will the patina vary over time?

Yes, most likely the patina on your brass pieces will continue to darken over time. Some people like this, but for those who do not, you can brush it back with ultra fine steel wool. You can also seal the patina with renaissance wax or spray sealants.

You're in Australia - will I get my package?

I've been selling on Etsy since 2009 and have never had a package go missing or items damaged in the post. I pack everything carefully and use sturdy boxes to ship most items. Usually it takes 2 weeks for items to reach most parts of the world from Australia. Once I have posted an item I can't tell you its whereabouts unless you took tracking, which is a shipping upgrade. That said, I trust our postal system as I have never had any issues with it.

Why do you charge for adding a patina and soldered bails?

Adding a patina to a piece takes time, and materials. I need to buy the patina, apply it, buff back the piece then repeat if I am not happy with the result.

When I solder on a bail, I also use materials and time. This includes the handmade bail, solder, use of torch and gas, then adding the patina. I have invested nearly $1000 into a proper soldering set up, so this ensures you get the best result.

I prefer to solder a bail so that you don't have to punch holes in the pieces. It seems such a pity to damage the design with holes. I choose the most logical location for the bail.

You often have an option to buy a piece in raw brass if you prefer not to pay for the added touches. Please check individual listings for more details.
