Jewellery that lasts longer than a lifetime
Silver Dandelion is a handmade jewellery brand focused on creating beautiful and timeless pieces of jewellery that are made from 100% recycled or Fairmined metals and ethically sourced gemstones.
All of the metals I use are either recycled (Eco Silver) or Fairmined Gold, ensuring that there is as little impact on the planet as possible.
My packaging is all recycled and recyclable and I try to use as few harmful chemicals as possible in my jewellery making processes.
I ensure that all the gemstones I use in my pieces are either reclaimed from pre-loved jewellery or are from certified and fully traceable ethical suppliers that support artisan miners in disadvantaged communities.
I have recently started to incorporate diamonds in my designs . These diamonds come from the Ocean floor off the cost of Namibia and South Africa, they are guaranteed conflict-free and do not involve any form of mining or excavation.
All my pieces are handmade by me using traditional metalsmithing techniques. I work from my small home studio in Surrey
Handmade jewellery is just as it says, from start to finish..made by hand and usually results (if you're anything like me) in hammer bruises, filed off fingerprints, burns and loads of tiny little cuts! No hand modelling for me!
But all that blood (literally) sweat and tears is a true labour of love. I enjoy nothing more than my mucky hands, shiny new jewellery and a full heart! It really does bring me JOY
I work in conjunction with Ecologi.com who are tackling the climate crisis head on by working with The Eden Reforestation Projects to plant trees in various locations around the world. For every order you place on my website a % goes to Ecologi.com to plant a tree.
All the products on this site can be bought as seen, these are my 'Ready to Wear' pieces.
You can also place a custom order if you want a different size, type of metal or gemstone. Just select 'Ask me a Question' on the Product page.
Or you can contact me directly to commission a piece of jewellery that is designed and made just for you
