I’ve had a run on these square bangles recently so this morning I spent time in the studio for the first time in ages and made some more. They just need polishing and their hallmark now #squarebangle #bangle #saturdaymakes #sterlingsilver #dorsetteam
Getting ready for Valentine’s Day? This personalised stacking necklace would make a great Valentines gift.
One of my most popular listings this Christmas is my #silver #unicorn necklace. Handmade to order and perfect for unicorn lovers. It can be #personalised too.

About

For the love of Silver...

Based in Bournemouth, Dorset, I discovered a passion for silversmithing as a hobby in 2010, before I had my daughter. After a few years out, I picked up the tools again and simply love losing myself in my little studio at home, playing around with silver again. This was always supposed to be a hobby but slowly interest in my work has grown, and it was suggested that I sell what I make. I'm thoroughly enjoying making and selling pretty things and especially enjoying working on bespoke pieces for my customers. This year, 2017, has seen me branch out into running silver making workshops too which is a perfect marriage of my traditional job working within HR and Talent Management.

All my work is handmade and unique. I make pendants, fingerprint charms, charms, rings, bracelets, bangles using sterling silver and pure silver clay. I draw inspiration from what's around me and am always looking to find new things to mould and make things out of. It's such fun to watch a glorious piece emerge and form.

Thanks for looking

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalised orders

Much of the jewellery I make is made to order and specifically for you. Although I strive for consistency on each and every piece, very slight variations are inevitable and no two pieces are ever exactly the same. The usual processing time is 3-5 working days for making individual pieces advertised on Etsy prior to postage.

You may wish to customise your piece in some way. I am happy to help and will give you a price and timescale when you enquire.

Maybe you have an idea for a commission and would like to discuss it. When you commission jewellery based on your own idea, I will visualise it for you and will aim to process the commission within two weeks. I will keep you updated with the progress.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All my items are sent in a lovely gift box, ready to give as a gift (or just as importantly as a treat for yourself). However if you'd like a personalised message to be included just send me a note when putting in the order and I will include a little gift card with your message.

What happens if my package gets lost in the mail?

Although rare, packages do get lost in the post from time-to-time. I will not be held responsible for packages lost in the mail. I send all mail special delivery and will send you a copy of the proof of purchase upon shipping.

Is it possible to purchase a pendant without the chain?

Yes. Please contact me for pricing and instructions for ordering without that chain.

Care instructions

All silver will tarnish over time. This process is natural but some substances in our daily lives will speed the process up, contact with soap, hairspray, perfume, food, latex and even the natural oils on our hands can tarnish silver quicker.

I recommend that you use a good quality jeweller's silver cloth regularly as part of your jewellery cleaning routine before the tarnish process begins.

Always remove jewellery before showering or swimming as silver can react with chemicals and chlorine.

Silver is a soft metal and it will naturally mark and scar if knocked, this is a natural characteristic of silver and means a pure silver charm or pendant will age and wear gradually over time.

Ring Sizing

If you don’t know your ring size there are a few options available:

1) purchase a ring sizer from my shop
2) pop into a nearby jewellery shop and they will be able to take your measurements for free.
3) if you know your size but it's not a UK size you can check a conversion chart by clicking on the following link:
http://findmyringsize.com/en/conversiontable.aspx
4) you can also drop me a line with your size according to your country chart

All rings are made to the sizes you specify at checkout or on ordering and charges may apply if you need the ring adjusted after purchase.

Bangle Sizing

To measure for a bangle - Close your fingers together and bring your thumb to your little finger, just as you would when you slide a bangle over your hand. Use a flexible measuring tape, string, or strip of paper and wrap it snugly around your hand at the widest point. Then measure the string/paper with a ruler.

All bangles are made to the sizes you specify at checkout or on ordering and charges may apply if you need the bangle adjusted after purchase.
