Meet the maker Suzanne Francis

I have been making and selling jewellery on and off for around 10 years. I love all types of jewellery techniques but have a particular liking for sea glass and the idea of turning it into something beautiful to wear. I have been collecting sea glass for many many years, usually bringing it back in bulk from numerous holidays around the British coastlines, Devon and Cornwall in particular. I also go on the occasional mud larking trip down the River Thames with my partner, its a lovely way to spend an afternoon, and always interesting to see what you uncover from your treasure hunt.

I am registered with the London Goldsmiths assay office, and have my own makers mark . Any items of jewellery over 7.78 g (sterling silver) need to be sent off for an official hallmark. Any items below this weight do not need an official hallmark, but will be marked with 925 where possible as my guarantee to the customer that it is genuine sterling silver as it is an offence to mark an item if it is not made of that material, some may also have my initials (my registered mark) .

All items are sent out via second class post, and within the 3 working (sometimes less) days unless otherwise stated, such as custom or made to order items. If you need your order dispatched quickly, message me and I will do my best to send out ASAP. All jewellery and keyrings are supplied with organza gift bags, and custom gift tags, packaged in a paper bag with handwritten order note and a business card.

If you have any questions about an order or item please don't hesitate to get in touch. Custom made orders welcome.

ABOUT PAYMENT - once you have ordered your items, immediate payment is preferred via PayPal (you don't have to open an account to use this service) or you have up to 24 hours from time of order to make your payment, if it's not convenient to do so at that moment. Please let me know if you are having problems with your order an payment. If you don't let me know items can be cancelled and re-listed for other potential customers. Thanks for taking the time to read this :o)

Please message me before purchase, if you want shipping outside of the UK. I can't always get to the post office quickly so will let you know an approx dispatch time and cost.
