I am currently unable to ship jewellery to Europe mostly for Covid-19 reasons, as well as Brexit. I’m truly sorry about this, I didn’t vote for Brexit; and none of us wanted Covid-19

Materials and Care - Imperfections and textures are very much part of my work, and reflect my interest in the surface effects of deterioration in man-made and natural materials.
All silver used is solid recycled sterling silver, this includes ear-wires.
Vitreous Enamel is powdered glass which is fired (fused) in a kiln between 730 - 800 degrees onto metal; silver or copper or steel.
This means that being similar to glass it can be vulnerable if it is dropped onto a hard surface.
Care Enamel work is best stored separately from other jewellery to reduce unwanted marking.
Silver will tarnish with time, and can tarnish when it comes into contact with skin. Avoid contact with perfumes, oils and creams.
Sea-water and chlorine will also tarnish silver, it is recommended to remove jewellery before bathing.
Cleaning - to return the silver to original condition, gently rub the silver with a silver cleaning-cloth.
Only solid silver items (no enamel) can be submerged in a cleaning fluid. It should be thoroughly rinsed and dried afterwards.
Cleaning silver that includes vitreous enamel, can be cleaned using a cotton-bud dipped into cleaning fluid, and carefully wiping it over the silver areas only. The whole piece should be thoroughly rinsed and dried afterwards.
