What is your jewellery made from?
I use sterling silver (92.5% pure) and fine silver (99.9% pure) in my jewellery and sometimes use gold, as well. All metals and gemstones are authentic and none of my pieces are plated
How do I clean my silver jewellery?
Silver jewellery does tarnish but can be cleaned using a silver dip, which removes tarnish. After using the silver dip, thoroughly rinse your jewellery in hot water with a mild detergent and be sure not to leave any soap residue. Jewellery with a patina should't be put in silver dipper polished as the patina could wear away.
Do you buy in jewellery to resell?
All of my jewellery is handmade and I will never purchase pieces of finished jewellery to resell. I do sometimes buy components used in my pieces, such as clasps and pins.
What is vitreous enamel?
Vitreous enamel is a material made by fusing powdered glass to another material by firing it in a kiln or with a torch. The powder melts, flows, and then hardens to a smooth vitreous coating. The word comes from the Latin vitreum, meaning "glass".

What happens to your scrap silver?
When making my pieces, there is inevitable some waste. As silver is a precious metal, my scrap silver has a value. I sell it back to be refined and it is then turned into wire and sheet. Silver is essentially endlessly recycled!
