F.A.Q.s

Handmade Jewellery

All my jewellery is handmade. Every piece will be unique and exclusive, please allow for imperfections and slight differences with the pieces on the images displayed, this is all part of the beauty of handmade work.

My preference is to work on small editions or one-off pieces. I generally will have no more than 10 to an edition unless I say different.  This means you can be sure that you have a unique piece of jewellery.

Custom and Personalised Orders

I accept custom orders if you are interested in having a special piece of Jewellery made please contact me and talk to me about your ideas.

Gift Wrapping

We ensure that your Jewellery is first wrapped in black tissue and then placed within an H+WJ Logo linen bag along with an Artist Profile.

To post we wrap the bag in bubble wrap and then place between strong cardboard to provide extra protection.

Can you include a personalised note if I’m sending this as a Gift?

Please let me know if your purchase is a gift and you would like us to include a personalised note in a gift card?

We have a selection of gift cards perfect for sending with your gift available (see under Stationery) to choose from. Include a card in your order and leave a short note during checkout and we will gladly write this on to the card for you.
We will make sure that your jewellery is wrapped and then packaged with your card in a box for postage.

Care Instructions
How do I look after my HerbertandWilks Jewellery?

I work to create stunning, unique wearable pieces that can last a long time. To keep your Silver Jewellery pieces looking extra fresh, some basic care will be required and here are some tips to get you started.
1. Removing jewellery when performing manual tasks can prevent physical damage caused to your jewellery because of rough contact or exposure to chemicals.
2. Invest in a Jewellery box or roll to keep your pieces organised and to help avoid scratches.
3. Sterling Silver will oxidise over time due to the nature of the metal but here is what you can do either clean your silver jewellery using a polishing cloth or wash with warm water, mild dish soap (no harsh detergents) and a soft brush.

I wear my personal pieces all the time (bed, work, in the workshop, sea, showers, pools) and my pieces keep clean and it solves the problem with storage! Yes, there are scratches from wearing the jewellery, but I like the charm and character they provide the piece. My jewellery is made to be worn. If I do want a piece to really shine I will use a polishing cloth on them to make them shine like new. In the end, its all up to you to decide how you prefer your pieces to be cared for.

Hope you have found these tips useful.
