ARE ITEMS HYPOALLERGENIC?
Necklace chains and other accessories are either silver or gold plated and are lead and nickle free.
Earring studs are made from 304 stainless steel. 304 grade stainless steel is safe, surgical grade and tarnish resistant metal. It is an excellent material for use in jewellery as it's low risk for allergic reactions. It's generally considered hypoallergenic for most people.
WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR CAPSULES FROM?
I do not own or use a Nespresso Coffee Machine. Instead I collect capsules from my local community, therefore stopping them from entering landfill.
I now have quite a few 'suppliers' of discarded pods, and at present do not need any more.
Get in touch if you live in Hill Head, Stubbington, Lee-on-Solent or Petersfield as I can offer local delivery.
I CAN'T FIND ALL OF YOUR DESIGNS ON YOUR WEBSITE
All items are handmade in small batches and sometimes only for particular events. Please send me an email if you're after something specific.
