  • Details
    I've expanded my range of popular handmade clay pendants and included many animal and floral designs. I call this little one Ama.

    A note on the names:
    I'm having way more fun then any adult is supposed to coming up with names for my new animals. I relate them all in some way to the animal or the story of making it. This one is named with reference to the African forest elephant. I do add a little 'my name is..' sticker to these necklaces when I send them out.

    This particular necklace has a handmade pendant with a elephant design. The pendant is 2cm wide, 2cm long (excluding wire) and 3-4mm thick. With the wire wrapping included, the total pendant length is 2.8cm.

    I hand make each pendant and paint them, so each is entirely unique. The elephant motif is inlaid in the clay, creating a three dimensional design.

    I have several other animal friends, including several more elephants, currently in progress and soon to be added to the shop. I also have a listing upcoming with custom elephant pendants, where you can add a monogram initial to the pendant.

    These pendants 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.

    They 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.

    CHAIN:
    Choose an option from leather cord, stainless steel, rose gold, silver plated or sterling silver chain.

    PACKAGING/GIFT WRAP:
    This is presented with the gift card shown, in a hand finished lino printed gift box I make myself. I present in a gold foiled gift bag with hemp bow and tags (see pictures). I am also happy to include gift messages, just let me know.

    As I make each one individually, there is also a lot of scope for custom designs, so if you have another idea in mind please get in touch. There are lots of other animals available in my etsy shop - look under the necklace category.

    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!

    I send UK parcels Royal Mail second class as standard with proof of posting obtained. I also offer expedited first class.

    I use international track and trace with signature for USA parcels.

    Please check for any customs or import charges in your country, which are the buyer’s responsibility

    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.

    Do you post internationally and when will my item arrive?

    Yes I'm perfectly happy to do this and parcels are sent with Royal Mail. I will always dispatch orders within 2 working days (except custom orders). I use Royal Mail second class in the UK and Royal Mail International Tracked & Signed.
