If your item arrives faulty please contact us within 30 days of receipt giving full description of fault and provide photographic evidence of this. Once the faulty item has been returned to us we will give a full refund including postage or offer a replacement. 

Please note that many of my items are stamped by hand using individual hand punches and a hammer. This means that the alignment, spacing & depth will not be perfect which adds to the rustic charm of the piece and is not considered a fault so is not covered by the returns policy.

I reserve the right to cancel any transaction that I feel is abusive or offensive in it's content.  

The materials we use

Copper and Bronze - This metal will develop a darker patina over time, you can easily polish with any generic metal polish. Some people find that their skin turns Green when wearing Copper jewellery, this is down to a natural chemical reaction between skin and Copper and not a fault with the jewellery. If you know that your skin reacts to this metal let us know at the time of ordering and we can coat the piece we use a product called Protectaclear. Alternatively you can just paint the inside with clear nail polish.

Pewter - This metal is soft and heavy, it may dull over time, all that is needed is to wash with mild dish detergent and buff with a soft cloth, you can also brighten up with Silver cleaner such as Silvo wadding. Keep away from chlorinated water and dishwashers.

Silver - The bullion we buy is from reputable UK companies so you are assured of it's quality. Sterling Silver items that are under 7.78 grams will be stamped with 925 stamp and the makers mark, any Sterling Silver items over that weight are hallmarked by the London Assay Office as required by UK law.

      What is PCI DSS and who needs to comply? (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) Consumers are becoming increasingly aware of the dangers of identity theft and PCI compliance shows that a business has secure procedures in place that keeps customer payment information safe and secure.
