Cuttlefish bone casting:
The process of cuttlefish casting is an ancient sustainable technique which has been used by jewellers for hundreds of years. The cuttlefish bone is used as a mould making and casting material by pressing or carving into the bone. The molten silver is poured into the mould. What is created are beautiful textured items. These are then used to create unique jewellery pieces.
Hallmarking standard state all silver items over 7.78 grams will need to be hallmarked. The UK hallmarking consist of the standard marking for metal purity, the London assay mark and my makers mark (KLR). Items under 7.78g in weight do not require a hallmark but the description needs to clearly state the metal types used.
A shipping charge of £2.00 will apply.
Care of jewellery:
My jewellery is handmade and will need to be cared for to ensure longevity.
Remove before bed, when exercising, gardening, or taking a bath.
Avoid swim in your jewellery as saltwater and chlorine can tarnish the silver.
Apply perfume and lotions, make up before putting jewellery on.
To clean use hot soapy water and a very soft toothbrush. Rinse and dry carefully and the shine up with a silver polish cloth. Please Note: this will not remove scratches.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
