From this seasons 'Cariad Bach' Collection (loosing translated from Welsh- Little Heart) was inspired by love, yes just love in general as I feel we could all use more love in our lives. It is a reminder to the wearer to love themselves, take care of themselves and generally pass love around and be kind to ourselves. Made from all recycled silver and made into repurpose delicate little hearts using a die. I have made 4 different designs including a small leaf - fern, Rhea Heart, Naira heart and Gaia Heart.
The process - Each design is hand crafted individually using traditional silversmithing technique. This means each piece is fabricated out of sheet metal, metal wire or Silver Clay.
Each are cut out by hand with a jewellers saw. edges are rounded and smothed by files and sand paper. Form are reacted by hammering and connections made via soldering with a jewellers torch.
Some designs are cast moulded or stamped to cut down on phyisical labour but this still comes with a whole lot of finishing stepsand a whole lot of hand polishing.
Each piece is polished by hand, using a series of files, buffers and sanding clothes.
While minimal componants are manufactured these are i.e clasps or bolts, each chain is measured from a spool of sterling silver wire and soldered together and still requires the same amount of finishing. To end this whole process they are then put into a barreling machine to wash and polish out any finer detail and helps the hardening process of each design. Then because im a bit of a perfectionist they are hand polished again, cleaned and then packaged up just for you.
