We have a lot of different Gemstones available and lattice work can be in other shapes. So just contact us if you would like a different shape or this shape with a different stone.
HOW THEY ARE MADE
We make all our Handmade Silver and Bronze Items using a material called Metal Clay. We love it as it consists of very fine, recycled metal particles that are mixed with an organic binder. Consequently this makes a material that looks and feels much like pottery clay, so it can be used in much the same way!
First of all, after we have made the design, we air dry the clay and then it is fired in a kiln. However, to work properly this has to be at temperatures exceeding 800 degrees Celsius. This causes the binder to burn away and the metal particles to fuse together.
The result is a new piece of metal in whatever shape we happen to have sculpted or moulded it. It almost seems to be magic!
Here in the UK, any piece of Silver, over a weight of 7.78 grams, has to be tested and Hallmarked by an official Assay Office to be sold legally. Therefore we are registered with the Edinburgh Assay Office where all our heavier creations will be stamped with our personal Hallmark.
Sterling Silver is the most commonly seen form and is 925 parts silver in 1000. The rest being cooper, which is added to give the metal more strength. So our chains, earring wires and other findings used on these pieces are sterling silver and purchased from UK companies.
However our own handmade elements are of a purer quality, being .999 or .960 Silver.
