✩Variations/findings✩
Because I make all the earrings myself I can be very flexible and offer you a wide range or ear findings to suit your ears in a variety of metals and styles.

These earrings come with very secure silver plated "lever-back" style findings (as pictured) which are suitable for regular/normal pierced ears.

But can be replaced (free of charge) with:
*silver plated large kidney wires, suitable for wearing though gauged tunnels, or if you simply prefer a longer earring (this will add approximately 2.5cm to the overall length).

For a small extra charge, I can replace the current ear-wires with:
*silver plated non-pierced/clip-on findings.
*hand forged ear-wires, in either a "Fish/Shepherd's hook" in solid 925 Sterling Silver
*"Lever-back" ear-wires in solid 925 Sterling Silver

Jewellery: Care Instructions

Jewellery should be the last thing you put on the first thing you take off.
Always avoid getting hair products, perfume or chemicals (chemicals can include household cleaning products, some foods such as Lemons or vinegar)
General Advice:
Any metal be-it Sterling Silver, base metals or plated alloys can become dull or tarnished. As a general rule don't get it wet, if you do, dry and polish with a soft cloth. If it goes dull or tarnished, a gentle polish with a non-abrasive Silver cloth will bring it's lustre back. Gems or beads can be wiped with a slightly damp cloth to restore their original lustre.
Certain precious or semi-precious stone may require special care, I will include the information in the items full description or care leaflet.
