All ‘Fred – a store’ jewellery is designed and created by hand, one piece at a time, so no two pieces will ever be exactly alike.
I use a wide variety of materials including: semi-precious stones, crystal, glass, wood, shells, porcelain, raku pottery, leather, tree bark, and food-grade seeds and dried beans.
All jewellery is made with nickel-free and lead-free metals to avoid metal sensitivities in some people. Metal finishes available:
- 18K gold plated brass
- 24K gold plated brass
- white gold plated brass
- sterling silver plated brass
- copper plated brass
- antiqued brass
- gunmetal (dark grey plated brass)
- 14K gold filled* (a layer of gold is applied to brass base metal with heat & pressure, making it 50-100,000 times thicker than regular gold plating) – a great option for those with metal sensitivities
