  • Brooches are underrated, in my opinion, so I'm trying to bring them back into vogue ;-)

    Each of these has a different texture applied;

    beaten

    natural leaf

    scattered leaves

    They measure

    beaten - 52 mm x 24mm

    natural leaf - 57 mm x 25mm

    scattered leaves -60 mm x  25mm

    and there is one of each. I have co-ordinating necklaces in my Etsy shop

    here:

    All the silver used when making my pendants is certified eco, recycled sterling silver, and these all have the platinum jubilee hallmark for 2022

     

    They have a surgical steel pin, but the rest of the fitting and the actual leaf is recycled sterling silver

     

    All the silver I use is certified eco silver - recycled and reclaimed by my bullion dealer, or made using my own scrap.

    • 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 as certified recycled.

      The 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.
