I absolutely LOVE taking the old and turning it in to something new. To me, jewellery is supposed to last a life time and I get to give it new life and watch it be worn in new ways, on new owners with double the meaning.
When it come to re-designing your jewellery, there are a few things we have to take into consideration. For example, the material. We aren’t always able to use your old gold as gold is mixed with other metals to make it wearable as jewellery, and we aren’t always sure what the other metals are and if they will contaminate our metal. Another factor that we have to take into consideration is whether the old piece has been cast of not. Casting metal is very difficult to re-work so we don’t use it, but rather re-sell the metal and give you credit for it.
