I created these pretty eco-friendly rings from silver plated copper.
I hand formed them into delicate twists and gently hammered them with my small jewellery hammer on my tiny anvil to produce a shimmery sparkly surface texture and then meticulously hand filed and smoothed the ends to ensure they are pleasant to the touch with no jagged spiky bits.
Then I burnished each one using an agate burnishing tool to reach a high standard of shine and sparkle and finally polished them by hand with a microfibre cloth.
The silver plated copper was harvested from scrap saved from my early jewellery making days.
This means that in making these I have :
1. used recycled materials that would otherwise have been wasted.
2. have not used any chemicals nor fossil fuels.
I only used hand tools and no power other than muscle power to make these. Everything I used in the process of making these rings is re-usable – I didn’t use any consumable tools nor materials.
Depending on how much you wear your ring the silver plate will erode over time to reveal the copper beneath and then you will have a lovely copper ring to enjoy. The copper is visible at each end of the ring as a rose gold coloured shimmer.
Each ring is unique and each one is adjustable. Message me before ordering so I can help you choose which one to suit you best of all. Also to make sure you know about any coupons/discounts I may have running at the time.
The ring comes in a black cardboard ring box with paper tissue to cushion it and keep it safe.
I use recycled and repurposed packaging to post my items.

This ring is a Celtiqua – Ring For Life.
This means that when the silver plating eventually wears off revealing the copper underneath if you don’t like it any more you may return it to me for recycling and I will either replace it for you or give you a discount code for another purchase – whichever you prefer.
Terms and Conditions apply as follows:
I will need a screenshot of your original order showing you bought it from me via the NuMONDAY system which you send to me in an email letting me know the ring is on its way and once it arrives with me I will send a replacement or email you a voucher code as you have specified.
As long as I continue to make jewellery I will honour it.
