Is the jewellery made with real silver?
The silver starts off life as silver clay an ingenious substance. Silver clay is made up of tiny particles of silver held together with a binder. We fire the clay to a very high temperature in a kiln to burn away the binder leaving solid silver.
How long will my order take?
For silver jewellery we quote 3-4 weeks from receipt of prints for your order to be with you. For personalised spoons, jewellery and copper keepsakes 2-3 weeks from date of order.
Each piece is handmade in person by Emma. At times the lead times are much quicker, at peak times possibly a little slower!
Kits are sent by 1st class post and dispatched within 48 hours. Jewellery is sent by local post. High value orders will need to be signed for. Spoons and copper are sent via local post .
Upon your order being received I aim to deliver your personalised items, copper, spoons etc approx 3 weeks. Upon prints being received for hand print or foot print jewellery we aim to deliver 3-4 weeks from the date of the prints arriving with us.
What Silver do you use for the keepsake jewellery?
The silver starts life as a clay, tiny silver particles held in an organic malleable binder. The impressions are pressed into the clay. After drying and firing in a kiln, the binder burns off and the silver particles fuse to make your silver jewellery.
I am Allergic to silver, will I be allergic to this silver?
Many people successfully wear the silver pendants on a gold chain, or chain they already own with no reaction. Please note chains and fittings (jump rings) used by Impressions to Keep are sterling silver. We can source white & yellow gold fittings and chains at an additional charge. So, get in touch if you need us to!
Will my prints fade?
Occasionally customers have noted their jewellery prints have faded, but have remarked that they have almost been touching their jewellery like a worry bead. Keyrings are particularly prone to wear due to the continual contact with other items on a key ring.
