Heads up ... we'll soon be taking a short break

We are taking a little time-off, BUT you can still order from us.  We won't be starting work on new orders placed after 16th September, 2020 until we return from our break on 4th November 2020.  This is to ensure that we can work through our existing orders and get them into the post before we take a break.  (Note: all orders placed prior to 16th September, 2020 will be shipped by 15th October 2020).  If you are wanting a delivery for mid November through to Christmas, please do place your order -- we'll work double-quick to despatch all orders that are placed during our break, when we return.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long before the product I like can be shipped?

We keep most of the more popular items we make in stock. If an item is in stock, it may be able to be sent on the day we receive your order, or depending on time of day and any customising, it may be sent on the following day. If you are running short on time, you could call or email us to check what we have available to ship immediately, or ask how long before the item can be made and ready for shipping.

Some of the items that we don't hold in stock are the Jewellery Boxes or Fireside Tools, because these have many options and variables, eg. colour of fabric lining, style of handles and type of tools. Our iron rings also need to be made to size, but as these are quick to make, they may only take an extra day or so.

Caring for Iron & Steel jewellery

Iron is a base metal and is not as stable as gold, silver or stainless steel. When it comes into contact with oxygen in the air or water, it will try to combine with the oxygen to create an iron oxide. We know this as rust. This is the reason why you seldom see iron in its naked state. Iron is protected in various ways: paints, glazes, varnishes, oils and waxes. Your jewellery piece has had a quality clear varnish applied to help protect it.

Your jewellery loves to be worn often. The oils in your skin help to condition the metal much like when you season a cast iron skillet (typically rinse, dry and apply an oil then heat it briefly - no soap as that is corrosive). Your iron jewellery can be treated similarly. Keep it dry and rub a little oil occasionally if it was exposed to water.

If it does get wet with substances like soaps & detergents, chlorine or salt water, rinse it with clean water and dry thoroughly using a hair dryer or leave it in the sun briefly. Apply some oil, you can use coconut oil, olive oil, or any other oil safe for cooking. Rub it on and buff it off.

Some people like to hang and display their jewellery. That would be great...as long as you aren't doing so in a steamy bathroom. Water and humidity are its foes.
