Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently asked questions
Is your Sea Glass Authentic?
Yes it is.
Why does Sea Glass vary in size, colour and appearance ?
Sea Glass comes from discarded glass that has entered the sea many, many years ago.
How do you clean & grade your Sea Glass ?
I soak my Sea Glass in anti bacterial washing up liquid and very hot water for several hours before removing, drying then sorting.
What Sterling Silver Wire do you use to make the jewellery ?
I only ever use British 925 Sterling Silver purchased from bullion dealers in the U.K.
How do I clean my jewellery ?
I use Silver Jewellery cleaning fluid if the Sterling Silver has tarnished or dulled.
How do I care for my Sea Glass Jewellery ?
It is important to correctly care for any jewellery to keep it looking as good as new.
Are you on any social media ?
Yes, you will find me on Facebook and Instagram
Do you clean the driftwood that you use ?
Yes. All of my driftwood is submerged soaked in a very mild bleach/water solution for a minimum of 2 weeks. This ensures any bacteria and micro-organisms are destroyed. This process is not done to 'bleach' the driftwood as I love the natural look when beachcombing. The driftwood is then dried out naturally over several weeks/months, then divided into similar size, style to be used down the line.
Do you take pebbles off the beach ?
No. It is actually against the law to remove pebbles from beaches within - the highest, highest tideline to 10 metres into the sea at lowest tideline. I am lucky to have discovered some areas well above the highest tideline to forage about.
Do you help clean the beaches ?
Yes. We always try and clear some rubbish off the beaches during any beachcombing expedition or dog walk. Sometimes there is so much rubbish washed in that I don't worry about treasure hunting and just spend a couple of hours trying to remove as much rubbish as possible.
Why can't I return Earrings ?
Unfortunately due to hygiene laws - I'm unable to accept returns on Earrings.
