Frequently asked questions
A synthetic ‘clay’ often with a high content of colour pigment. The material is both lightweight and durable, making it perfect for jewellery.
The highly patterned pieces are made using different coloured clays. I build up a design and create a block, something like a ‘stick of rock’ which I use to cover my beads and pendants. The more organic pieces are made using various surface applications which are then stabilised under a layer of translucent medium.
During my degree, I majored in surface design for textiles and also print making; drawing inspiration from the art and design world and from works of many cultures both ancient and modern. I try to bring these skills and inspirations into my jewellery designs.
The most common allergy people experience is with base metals (non precious metals).
The earwires on my earrings are 925 sterling silver or pure copper, which doesn’t contain
nickel, minimizing the risk of allergic reactions.
I use either 925 sterling silver chokers/chains or waxed cotton cording for my neckwear.
Occassionally I will use ‘silver-filled’ wire in my jewellery.
Please read the descriptions that accompany my work as this will detail what metals, if any, have been used.
Silver-filled wire is an excellent alternative to 925 Sterling Silver.
10% PURE SILVER is bonded to a core of copper wire, hundreds of times more silver content than simple silver plated wire. So, my clients are getting great quality at a lower price than a fully sterling silver piece.
I test all my pieces to ensure that they will stand up to normal wear; unlike glass and some ceramic work which can be somewhat brittle, polymer clay is a durable material.
