Inspired by nature

Materials

The Sterling Silver and 9 carat gold used in all the pieces are sourced from one of the UKs most reputable suppliers of precious metals.  All the feathers used, whether for rolling or adding to the pieces themselves are cruelty-free.  Many are from our own chickens who have the run of our garden and can often be found sunbathing on the doorstep or dust-bathing in the veg patch happily providing me with naturally moulted feathers.  Our neighbours have a flock of guinea fowl roaming free in their grounds so I’m often seen wandering around their garden collecting dropped feathers!  

 The Majority of the feathers that feature in a piece of jewellery themselves come from a lovely company called Running Bug Farm in West Virginia, one of very few suppliers of cruelty-free feathers.

Hallmarking

It is a legal requirement for all items of jewellery being sold as silver or gold, over a certain weight, to be hallmarked.  For silver this weight is 7.78g and for gold, 1g.  You will find many of my items weighing less than the specified weight may also be hallmarked if the item allows space.
My unique sponsor mark is registered at the Assay Office Birmingham.  The Assay Office Birmingham was founded in 1773 to provide assaying (testing) and hallmarking of precious metal items as required by the Hallmarking Act.
Below are the marks that you will see on my jewellery:
