  • I love wearing bracelets. 

    I use 1.2mm sterling silver wire* to form these links and soldered them together to give a sinuous feel to the piece. Then I've added an S-Clasp (again, I've made this) 

     

    This allows for the bracelet to be fastened on any of the links, so this photographed bracelet will fit a wrist up to 17 cm (6.5 inches) 

     

    This bracelet weighs just over 9 grams, so, of course has it's formal hallmark. Your's will too. Just tell me the size you want and I'll finish and dispatch it for you within a week (usually that takes me a couple of days)

     

    When placing your order, please let me know the wrist size you would like me to make it fit. Either tell me the size if you know it, or opt for small, medium, large - Small tends to be about 6-6.5 inches (15-16.5cm), medium 6.5-7.5 inches (16.5-19cm), large 7.5-8.5 inches (19-21.5cm).

     

    If you would like one larger than 8.5 inches, or smaller than 6inches, then again,  just let me know.

     

    Please see the final photographs for an image of my hallmarks. The size and style of the hallmark on your piece will depend on the item you purchase as the Assay Office are excellent at adjusting the size of the mark to fit the size of the piece. 

     

    The bracelets available for instant dispatch are as follows:
    Small  - 19cm, which mean it will comfortably fit a wrist up to 17cm / 6.5 inches, weight 9.g approximately
    Medium - out of stock - made to order
    Large - 21cm, fitting a wrist up to 20 cm / 8inches, Weight 10.3g, approximately

     

     

    NOTES:
    All my silver is now bought as certified recycled eco-silver, made from 100% scrap / recycled silver which has been fully refined to ensure it is of the same quality as traditional sterling, but of course without the environmental impact of mining it.

     

    Although I have a couple in stock, future chains will be made to order - it may take up to 2 weeks for me to do so, factoring the posting to the Assay Office, but I would usually expect to complete your order within a week.

     

    If the size you want is shown as sold out, please send me a message. Also, if you'd like this as a necklace, do contact me as I can make these to any length. 

     

    As with all my fully hand crafted pieces, I use certified recycled sterling silver, and although future chains will be made to the same method, there will be slight variances to the chain and also to the hallmark - examples of hallmarks placed on my work by the London Assay Office in the final photos.

     

    NOTES:
    Wrist vary.
    Small tends to be about 6-6.5 inches (15-16.5cm), medium 6.5-7.5 inches (16.5-19cm), large 7.5-8.5 inches (19-21.5cm).

    • Sterling Silver will eventually oxidise or tarnish. It's a natural process that can be slowed down by regular wear and by keeping unworn items away from the atmosphere. If you leave your jewellery out on display, this oxidisation will be faster.  You can polish up your items, with a soft cloth, some silver polish, or a buffing cloth such as Town Talk, which is readily available from any high street jewellers in the UK

      Fine silver is 99.9% silver, and because of this the tarnish rate is much, much slower. Again, a buff should do the job for polishing it back up. If I have patinated your silver already, be gentle when buffing!

      Each piece should stand up to regular wear, but , as with all jewellery, please remove it before washing, using chemicals or applying perfume etc

      Apply body lotion and perfume a few minutes before putting on your jewellery to help slow down tarnish

      The sterling silver used in these items was sold to me by my bullion dealer ass certified recycled.

      he gemstones I use have been sold to me by reputable dealers as untreated (unless stated specifically in the listing). They are a natural, organic creation from the earth and each one will be slightly different. You can see examples of this on my Facebook page.
      I select the stones that I think go together best for each project, hence my comments that each item is individual.
