Sleek Modern – jewellery line.

 

This post was unlocked and edited on 5 oct 2012.

Introducing the new Sleek Modern photo pendants, combining my Western Australian wildflower imagery with impressive new glass shapes from the US.

Each photograph is professionally lab printed onto either Kodak Endura Metallic or Fuji Crystal Archive papers before I individually assemble, sand, and finish every piece. Almost all the pieces contain tiny glue bubbles, which add sparkle and remind you of their handmade, one of a kind (OOAK) nature.

The Sleek Modern pendants feature high quality “Aanraku” leaf and “Spider” tube bails from the US. These bails are made from non-toxic hypoallergenic metal with sterling silver (or 18k gold) plating.

There is only one of each design available.

About the items.

All items are of a handmade nature and may vary slightly from order to order. Your piece of jewellery may show bubbles, tool marks or glue residue on the back. Each ‘in stock’ item listed has its own photograph so you will always receive the exact item shown in the listing.

I spend ~2hrs (plus drying time) hand assembling each piece of glass jewellery. Instead of the common glazes used to create glass tile pieces, I use a strong adhesive to secure all parts. All paper edges are hand sanded using 3-4 grades of sandpaper before they are sealed with adhesive to help prevent fraying. Once everything is dry, I polish each piece with high quality auto glass cleaner.

The jewellery is moisture resistant due to the glass but is NOT waterproof. It’s important to remove it before showering, swimming or heavy exercise.  Please take care with jewellery items and don’t allow them to get wet or sweaty.

If you take care, and treat your pieces as costume jewellery, you shouldn’t have any problems.

Jewellery items contain small parts and as such aren’t suitable for children.

This jewellery is made by hand and no two pieces will be completely identical. Due to the handmade nature, please be aware that items are not flawless, yet I have made every effort to carefully photograph all parts for you. I have written my name on the back with permanent marker. This does not show through when worn but may be visible when held in the light.


Thanks for reading, if you have any questions, please contact me!
