For the creation of the one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry I use silver clay. Silver Clay is composed of fine microscopic of particles of silver in an organic binder creating a pliable material with a consistancy like that to modeling clay. You find also find precious metal clay with bronze, copper or gold particles on the market. Because of its initial consistency, the clay can be moulded, carved, worked with simple tools and even fingers, to achieve unique and infinite versions of forms, patterns and surfaces. When the piece is ready, it is fired in a kiln at a very high temperature. The binder burns away and the particles enter the sintering process, resulting in a 99,9% silver piece of jewelry. The final polishing and embellishing adds to the jewelry's shiny exclusivity. The 'Dream Believe Achieve' jewelry is made of 925 Sterling Silver or Gold Plated Brass.
How do I know my wrist size?
To measure your wrist to determine which bracelet or bangle size you should choose, follow these steps: 1. Pretend to put on a bangle and close your fingers together, bringing your thumb to your little finger. 2. Use a flexible and flat tape measurement or a strip of paper and wrap it around your hand at the widest point. When you use paper mark your size and then measure the paper strip with a ruler. That would be the circumference of your hand. 3. Compare this circumference with the sizes in the list below and for your purchase select a size which is the next size from your actual hand measurement. XS = diameter: 6 cm (2.36“) = circumference: 19 cm (7.50“) S = diameter: 6,5 cm (2.55“) = circumference: 20,5 cm (8.07“) M = diameter: 7 cm (2.75“) = circumference: 22 cm (8.67“) L = diameter: 7,5 cm (2.95“) = circumference: 23,5 cm (9.25“) XL = diameter: 8 cm (3.15“) = circumference: 25 cm (9.84“)
Do you do custom work?
Yes, I have a special process in place if you would like to get your own piece of jewelry based on your ideas and visions. You can contact me to get a complimentary 'Design Treasure Call' to start on your very unique treasure. Prices and timeline depend on the design and creation of the piece itself. Usually there is no stock replacement on the website if an item is sold out - but you can certainly request your custom design based on a piece you have seen and liked!
What if I don't know what I want? Or how will I know you understand what I want?
For making sure I do understand what result you wish for, I have developed a short questionnaire for the initial exchange and also some in depth questions for deeper consultations. Those questions will also help you to determine what you want or lead you there. If there are any open questions either from you or me, we will be in close contact either by mail, phone or in person.
Can I trust that you keep my thoughts private?
I can ensure you that our conversations remain private. Although your jewelry will be visible to others, your personal message or story connected to it is yours only. The result of us working together will only be shown if you agree.
