Handmade, hand painted sterling silver pendant. I start off by saw piercing a circle from a sheet of sterling silver. I then forge the disc into a dome shape and after sanding, polishing and hallmarking I hand paint the design using enamel paint. I add a band of 23.5ct gold leaf and then finish off with a protective coat of gloss varnish.
Dimensions - Approx 25mm in diameter and 1.20 cm thick. Supplied with 20 inch sterling silver snake chain.
All hallmarks including my maker's mark have been applied by the Edinburgh Assay Office

Jewellery with a hand painted or oxidised finish.
To protect the hand painted or oxidised surface and prolong the life of your jewellery, care should be taken to remove jewellery before swimming, showering, bathing etc. Avoid contact with perfumes, hairspray and cleaning products such as bleaches etc. Please do not use silver dips and silver polishes as these will damage the painted surface.
To clean the silver rim of hand painted pieces use a silver polishing cloth (available from most supermarkets and department stores). Place the cloth on a flat surface and hold it taut with your fingers. Place the pendant or earring face down on the cloth and gently rub back and forward a few times. This will restore the shine on the rim of your piece of jewellery without damaging the painted finish. A soft clean brush (I use a make up/cosmetic brush ) can be used to gently brush off any dust or debris from the painted surface.
