How will my jewellery wear ?
Customer Testimonial
“About 25 to 30 years ago I bought about 4 pieces of jewellery from you. I just had a look at your website & I love all your new designs, they are simply gorgeous. They are sexy, earthy & I don’t think they will ever age. I have the kitten ring & the larger silver ring with the 3 “knobs” on top. I love them so much & when I wear them they feel like they are part of me. The larger silver ring is always admired whenever I wear it.
I don’t think I have any other pieces of jewellery that after 30 years I am still wearing apart from yours. They all still
look so good (the other pieces I have are the pebble earrings & the female body shape pendant) So I just wanted to say thank you so much for them & I’m glad you are still making fantastic pieces.”

How do I care for my jewellery ?
Chlorine in swimming pools, bleach, manure, perfumes, personal products and perspiration take their toll on all fine jewellery and can cause oxidisation. Use a silver polishing cloth if you want more shine. For textured jewellery use an old tooth brush with hot soapy water, or for semi Matt, use toothpaste, you will be amazed with the results.
