Some of my work is made with Silver Art Clay which is a silver product made from reclaimed silver. It's made by a Japanese industrial recyling company. It is manufactured in clay form with tiny particles of fine silver suspended in the clay. Once the item has been moulded and carved to the desired form it is fired. The clay burns away and the fine silver particles bind together to form .999 silver. It's a fantastic environmentally friendly material to work with, look out for it amongst my items for sale.
I adore custom orders. They give me the opportunity to try something new and I love a new challenge. The beauty of marketplaces like Artfire is that they make custom orders very accessible to all!
I specialise in bridal custom orders, but also I am happy to tweak anything available in my shop e.g. you like it but would like a different gemstone or you love that cuff bracelet, but could it be made wider.
I also take orders for silver fingerprint jewellery. Brilliant keepsakes from your childs younger years - teenagers like them too. Contact me through Artfire and I can create a custom listing just for you!
All jewellery items are sent boxed and wrapped.
Please read my terms and conditions before committing to order.
