See Jewellery care for more information on materials and keeping your jewels shiny for years to come
Gold fill is is made with a layer of gold - pressure bonded to another metal. Gold filled is not to be confused with gold plating as filled literally has 100% more gold than gold plating. Gold filled is much more valuable and tarnish resistant. It will not flake or rub off, or turn colours.
My latest collection Into Bloom has seen the reintroduction of heavily beaded pieces on professional grade beading wire. My previous beaded designs were constructed on unbreakable memory wire, although tough it kept a hoop shape and did not drape like these new pieces will!
So unlike my other jewels I recommend taking extra care of these pieces.
The odd exposure to water wont end all, but over time it will wear down the resistance in the thread to bead kinking which will lead to eventual breakage.
We are currently creating a DIY repair kit for our beaded pieces. Ash will do a little blog about it with instructions and ideas etc.
So when the time comes for a new life you can re-bead or even better re-bead with some beach shells or personal treasures you already own for a personalised look.

I offer one free repair in the lifetime (outside of warranty) of your treasure & any ongoing repairs will be at minimal cost.
To be truely sustainable is too repair and reuse.
If your repair is an old design and I no longer have the materials required to fix the item, I am happy to discuss a custom remake with you.
For items handmade by our fellow artisans (mostly rings, cuffs etc) we can not repair in-house.
If out of warranty we suggest having the item repaired by a local jeweller.
In addition I will supply you with some store credit towards your next keepsake.
For all broken jewels/repairs please email us photos of the item and info on how the piece was broken.
Should you receive a faulty or damaged product, in the post please contact me with your specific problem and I will get back to you with info.
