Frequently Asked Questions:
Do you take custom orders?
Are the globes made out of glass or plastic?
The globes or balls are made from hand blown glass and are very strong.
How strong is the glass in the necklaces?
The glass globes are very strong, as they are spheres they are structurally very strong. I wear mine on a regular bases and run around after two young boys. The can cope with being dropped onto work surfaces and bedside tables.
Where are the flowers grown?
Many of the flowers are home grown by myself, you will find a few grown by my lovely mum in Leicestershire where I grew up and I also work with a local British farm to keep up with the demand.
Will the petals fade in the jewellery?
They have been dried in such a way that preserves the colour and the very large petals have been coated in a UV spray to protect them further. When you are not wearing your necklace I would recommend keeping them out of direct sunlight and in their box just to keep the necklace at its best.
Will the petals break down or bi-degrade?
No the petals are preserved by drying them before they are sealed in the glass globes. When they are in the glass globes they are then protected from the elements and pollution.
Can I wash my hands whilst wearing your ring?
I have sealed the rings all of the way around but water will find the tiniest hole I would recommend removing your ring to ensure that it is kept its best.
Can I wear the jewellery in the bath/shower?
Even though I have sealed the wooden jewellery with a hard varnish and the glass jewellery is sealed all the way around I would not wear them whilst bathing to ensure the longevity of these handmade pieces.
Can I wear my brooches on my coats/outer garments?
Yes please! These will survive a rain shower as they are coated in a hard varnish to protect them, but please make sure that you remove your brooches before putting them in the washing machine.
