  • This listing is for an individually, handcrafted, solid sterling silver, coiled stitch keeper / cable stitch needle assist / shawl pin.

     

    They are made using 2mm thick, round recycled sterling silver wire, which I coil to measure approximately 2.5-3cm in diameter, but each will be unique, as you can see from the pile I've got in my hand here.

     

    Choose a plain one, or one with agemstone bezel set for  a little more luxury with our crafting ;-) These are priced individually and can be made to order with a gemstone of your choice. They work well as scarf pins too

     

    I currently have a rose cut, freeform rainbow moonstone and toumalinated neon blue apatite in this listing

    The apatite has been hammer set in a nubbly setting to accentuate texture, after I discovered just how wonderful handspun yarn is for crochet. This also has the bonue of extra sparkle ;-)

     

    If you'd prefer a more premium stone such as a ruby or an opal, then there may be a surcharge to represent the increased cost. Message me and I'll let you know if that's the case, and what the prce will be.

     

    Shown with the Soffritto scarf (pattern available as a digital download on my website, or as part of a kit from www.KosyKitchenFibres.com which will also include a copper version of these keepers)

     

    Please note that each will be slightly different, as I make them individually.

     

    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.

    • 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.
