Giving to charity 2020.

Yup, this year I decided for every piece of jewellery I sell in the run up to Christmas, I will donate £1 per item sold to a local charity dear to my heart.

I already offer FREE postage in the UK, contributing to a lower price for the buyer, but I commit to also donating to charity.

If I sold all my 200+items that would mean £200 to charity, at a time when as a human family we need to work together to help each other navigate 2020.

In total I was able to donate £10+ Gift Aid to two charities in the UK, following the sale of 10 items in the run up to Christmas 2020.

My two online shops are on Etsy (US platform) and Folksy (UK platform). Each shop has a unique stock.

Turquoise heady pendant

This wire wrapped turquoise bead pendant took 4 hours to complete. It is made from tarnish resistant silver plated copper wire with an intricate motif.

As with all pieces, this is a unique one. I will never be able to replicate it due to the number of wraps. Even if i attempt to make a 2nd one, it will be different.

Each piece is an individual wire art piece, influenced by the mood of the day.

This pendant is available to buy on my FOLKSY shop

Hematite wire wrapped pendant

august 2017-555-Edit

I am always excited when I am able to produce individual pieces from drawing to finished article.

This piece is the result of jotting down some drawings whilst having my morning Saturday coffee. It is simple and yet elegant with clan flowing design.

The hematite beads hang wrapped in the same tarnish resistant silver plated copper wire.

It hangs beautifully from a 24″ chain – is suitable for an elegant evening out or indeed part of a day time attire. Below is an opportunity for you to purchase this unique piece.

**A NOTE: Wire wrapping is a genre of jewelry which requires pliable wire to be shaped into each piece. As a piece progresses, the wire hardens and it will retain it’s shape, however if you try to bend it or it gets squished, it will bend. Do not place your wire wrapped jewelry in a purse or pocket. :) Though all silver plated pieces are made from tarnish resistant wire; it may age; as most metals do. Mild soap and water shouldn’t damage the finish, however I do recommend removing your jewelry before showering or bathing; using household cleaners, chemicals, or essential oils; doing manual jobs like gardening or washing dishes; and applying lotions. Do not use jewelry cleaners on this jewelry. Sometimes the plating can wear off with excessive use – therefore I recommend not wearing the pieces every day. Rotating your beautiful jewelry pieces creates a new look for you; and changes your mood for that day.

The inspiration for the stone came from the unusual shape. It is almost like a teardrop. Wrapping the copper wire landed itself to have an asymmetrical spheroid wrap at the top. The wire wrapped circles naturally fit into the curvature of the gem.
