FAQs

DELIVERY

I design, make and post all items from my home studio in Hampshire, UK. All items are posted using Royal Mail. 

​All order are posted in recycled and recyclable packaging.

ARE ITEMS HYPOALLERGENIC?

Whilst each piece has parts of an aluminum coffee pod (which is hypoallergenic),  I do need to add extra parts e.g. earring hooks, clasps, chain etc.

Earring studs are made from 304 stainless steel.  304 grade stainless steel is safe, surgical grade and tarnish resistant metal.  It's an excellent material for jewellery as it's low risk for allergic reactions. It's generally considered hypoallergenic for most people.

As each design is slightly different, check the individual product description before buying.

WHAT CAPSULES DO YOU USE?

WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR CAPSULES FROM?  DO YOU NEED MORE?

All my designs feature aluminium coffee pods.  I am unable to use and upcycle plastic pods.

I am unable to use:

  • Nescafe Dolce Gusto Pods (or any Dolce Gusto compatible pods)

  • Lidl's Bellarom Ristretto Espresso Capsules

  • Alcafe Cappuccino Coffee Pods

Many other companies, like the ones listed below, offer a coffee pod recycling service. 

Podback is the most common scheme for both plastic and aluminum - I really recommend ordering a FREE bag and returning used pods to your local Collect+ Stores

I do not own or use a Coffee Pod Machine.

 

I collect coffee pods from people, who for various reasons, are unable to recycle them.

​I now have quite a few 'suppliers' of used aluminum pods, and as I am just a small business (just me).   I do not need any more.

I recommend using the Podback Recycling Service.

WHY UPCYCLE NOT RECYCLE?

 

While recycling is important for reducing waste, upcycling takes it a step further by transforming discarded items into something new and valuable.

 

Instead of using raw materials for jewellery making, upcycling allows me to get creative and give new life to single-use coffee pods, making items which are truly unique and innovative.
