  • Details
    I've added many more animals to my popular handmade clay pendants! These also now include the option to personalise the pendants by adding a monogrammed initial.

    This particular necklace has a little elephant design. They are sized approx 2cm wide. On each the elephant is 1.8cm wide (head to trunk!) and 1.1cm high. They are 3-4mm thick.

    I handmake each pendant and paint them, so each is entirely unique. The animal motif is inlaid in the clay, creating a three dimensional design. These are hand formed so not always 'perfect' circles and there may be small indentations. I think (and hope you agree) that this is part of the charm with artisan creations, but I wanted to point it our just in case.

    These are made using air dry clay which is then painted and thrice varnished for protection. Please see my shop FAQ section for care advice for these pieces.

    PERSONALISATION: Please specify which colour and chain you would like.
    I also have a slightly larger elephant pendant which has the option of adding a custom monogram initial. (Lisiting coming soon) I will always contact you on receipt of an order though to double check the design choice and gather extra specifications if there are any.

    TIME-SCALE: These pieces are made to order and I ask at least a week (7 days) to finish the necklace after receiving your instructions. I will keep you updated during the process and send a picture prior to postage, so we can double check you are happy. Please check the postage shipping time for your location, which is on top of the one week make time.

    Necklaces are available with either a leather cord, stainless steel (can be a good alternative for sensitive skin), rose gold, silver plated or sterling silver chain. All are presented on the card shown and presented in a hand finished lino printed gift box. I also offer additional gift wrapping options and am always happy to include gift messages.

    I have become quite addicted to these pendants (especially the animal ones) so have a look in my shop for similar including owls, penguins, bees, floral designs and many more - now all available to customise. As always, you can also request a custom order from me directly by sending me a message through the shop.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Custom and personalised orders

    I offer many custom options, particularly in my ceramic pendant range. All the information is included in the listing details, but feel free to contact me with additional info or questions. I will always speak with you first, before making a custom order, to clarify your design and before sending to check you are happy with the outcome. I ask 10 days from confirmation of order in which to make the piece. Shipping times are additional to this 10 days.

    I'm always happy to work with you to create something special and unique.

    Care instructions

    A lot of the components are natural materials so they can be fragile or prone to attack by water or rough handling. To protect your jewellery, please handle it carefully and remove it before bathing/showering, swimming and snoozing. It is also a good idea to avoid getting perfume, make-up or creams on jewellery.

    Gift wrapping and packaging

    I carefully pack all items in a padded envelope (preferably recycled envelopes where possible).

    I have a 'gift wrap' option and am happy to include gift messages. See my shop photos for examples of packaging featuring lino printed packaging, designed and hand printed by me!

    What metal do you use?

    Ear wires:
    These are most often silver plated or aluminium. I also use sterling silver, stainless steel (hypo-allergenic) and the listing info has specific information for each item. I am happy to alter ear wire type if possible, just ask. This also includes the clip-on style.

    Wire & findings (jump rings, connectors etc.):
    Most of the wire I use is either copper, aluminium or iron and plated with copper, silver or black colour plating. The thickness I most often use is 0.4mm.

    For more specific information about the components in a particular item, please ask.

    What gemstones do you use & can you make items in specific birthstones?

    Many and yes!

    I love to use semi-precious gemstones like agate, quartz, lapis lazuli (and many many more). I find the reputed mystical and healing properties of these stones interesting (and know many people do) so will include a few lines about these for the appropriate items.

    I think there's something special about using organic materials and wearing treasures from nature against one’s skin. I find it a joy to work with them and hope this positive energy will transfer to their new owners.

    See my 'birthstone jewellery' and 'healing jewellery' section in the shop to find these items.

    What are the clay/ceramic components?

    Clay components
    These are made using either stoneware fired and glazed clay (hardy but can be fragile if dropped) or air-dry clay. I really like working with the latter as there is limitless potential to create unique interesting components and finishes without needing to kiln fire. However it is a bit of a unknown quantity in that I’ve only recently started working with it and have no personal experience of how it behaves over time. The manufacturer information states this is very durable, particularly when varnished and is PVC free, containing only vegetable binders. I varnish these with a double coating but would still recommend taking special care with these components, particularly avoiding rough handling, water or intense heat/cold.

    What do you mean when you say 'recycled' materials?

    I use beads in a variety of sizes, colours, finishes and origins. I’ll be as specific as possible in the listings about materials. I do enjoy using recycled materials as much as possible mainly due the surprise of coming across unusual items of mysterious origins (!) and I’ll pick them up at places like charity shops, car boot sales etc. or even re-purpose my old jewellery. I will always replace ear wires and fastenings though for hygiene reasons.
