All jewellery listed here that says silver is sterling silver, I do not use silver plate at all. There will be elements of sterling silver in every design (keyrings excepted), some will be completely so, others may have combinations of copper, brass, bronze, dichroic glass, enamel, pewter and/or semi-precious stones as well. To make things easier for you if you wish, I can also gift wrap any presents, add a hand-written note and send them directly to the recipient – just leave me a note with what you would like to say when you checkout.
A cat cut from pewter sheet that I've etched. I've painted in a red heart with glass paint. 6.5 cms tall, it is suitable for a coat or jacket lapel. Sterling silver brooch fastener to finish off.

Handcrafted in Lancashire
Using pewter enables me to etch in a metal that can look as shiny as silver but because it is not such an expensive material, I can experiment more and sometimes do designs on a larger scale. If this was made in sterling silver, it would need to be hallmarked due to the weight/size and would cost probably twice as much.
In case you are wary, the pewter that you find today including the metal I use, does NOT contain lead and therefore is a shiny silver colour. It is made up of tin, copper and antimony and unlike silver and other metals, pewter does not tarnish so easily. It is definitely nickel-free too.
A BROOCH CAN BE ANYTHING YOU WANT
“Nobody wears brooches anymore”
How many times have I’ve been told?
And how many times have I showed
By how many brooches I have sold!
2020 has been a challenging task
Hiding earrings with that elastic
A brooch will show, no matter the face mask
But to some, this might feel drastic!
On a scarf, hold a shawl
But that isn’t all
What else can you do?
Hat decoration, how bijou!
On a coat, a waistcoat, a lapel
Whatever you like, c’est belle.
So much you can do
Just think it through,
USE YOUR IMAGINATION!
