Caring for Silver Jewellery

Caring for Silver Jewellery

Silver Jewellery at Impressive Memories

Silver Jewellery made at Impressive Memories

All silver jewellery at Impressive Memories is made from Sterling Silver, this is also known as .925 silver, and is the strongest form of silver available, but silver is still a relatively soft metal. Your jewellery is kiln fired, work-hardened and professionally polished to provide the strongest metal surface possible. Your charm will only have my Edinburgh Assay Hallmark on it if legally required. 

Wearing your jewellery

Once you begin wearing jewellery different external forces will of course come into contact with the sterling silver. This will vary from one person to another. Any force harder than .925 silver has the potential to scratch or dent your jewellery surface. Chemicals and lifestyles also impact our jewellery. Our hormone levels and the food we eat all alter our skin which in turn makes us more, or less, prone to tarnishing. 

Possible causes of damage

  • Other jewellery hitting against your charm
  • Clothing/buttons
  • Zips
  • Chemicals
  • Detergents
  • Perfume
  • Makeup/lotions etc
  • Hand sanitiser
  • Wearing jewellery in the bath/shower
  • Swimming
  • Not removing jewellery at bedtime
  • Not cleaning and protecting your jewellery

Why polish silver?

Polishing your jewellery will help to maintain the shine and lustre of your impressive jewellery.

Polishing silver will remove & slow down the natural tarnishing process. Using a polishing cloth with added anti-tarnish will give your jewellery added protection. Keeping the surface metal polished & protected will also mean your jewellery stays shiny too!

The amount of polishing that silver needs will depend on the individual person and their lifestyle.  

What happens after silver is scratched, dented or damaged? 

When we damage, dent or scratch our jewellery this exposes the surface metal which exposes the unprotected silver and it will tarnish (blacken) more quickly, as it is being exposed to oxygen and doesn’t have the protection to slow down the natural process. This darkening makes the damage more noticeable.

Storing Silver 

If you are not wearing your jewellery keep it in a safe place. Tarnishing will occur during this time too - don't be alarmed if you open your jewellery and it is dark or discoloured. 

How do I remove tarnish?

I have a blog on my website to help with cleaning and caring for your silver jewellery - click the button below to find out more.

Removing the visible tarnish on your charm might help minimise any visual damage that’s already occurred and prevent/slow down further damage.

Caring for your jewellery going forward…

Avoid the suggested possible causes above, clean and polish your jewellery regularly and enjoy your Impressive Memories.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2020

Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2020

What do you buy your mum on Mother’s Day?

Flowers? Always a favourite, but they are expensive and last only a few days…Chocolates? They are always welcome, but somehow just don’t feel ‘enough’. Wine is also welcomed, but it lasts even less time than the chocolates, let alone the flowers!!

Would you like a gift that is totally unique, handmade for mum, inspired by the very person (or persons) who made her a mum in the first place?

Maybe you are a mum yourself and you’d like to ‘help’ someone choose the right gift for you – share this with them and start hinting!

You’re in the right place!

Every mum is different and she deserves a present as unique as she is. Mums aren’t mass produced, and the gift that she’s given on the 22nd March 2020 shouldn’t be either.

Mother's Day Gift Guide 2020 2
There is something for everyone.  Well, everyone that’s Impressive enough!
Mother's Day Gift Guide 2020 3

1. Gifts From £15

Want to make an impression but not burst the bank?

Book an appointment to come along and get creative! Bring along some little hands and feet and create a gift for Mum, Gran, Aunty…YOURSELF.  No mess and stress of visiting a busy ceramic cafe. I’m here to help, guide, inspire you to create something that’s simply beautiful. I can give as much or as little to help as you wish.

Please book before Friday 6th of March for Clay Impressions, of Friday 14th of March for ceramic mugs/plates/clocks to guarantee your item is ready to collect in time for Mother’s Day.

2. Handmade Jewellery

Handmade jewellery can be made for Impressive Mums.  Distance is not a problem…all jewellery can be made by posting out a kit for you to take the prints for me. If you live nearby you can book an appointment and I can take them for you.

3. Golden Fingerprint Jewellery

If Mum prefers a golden charm to silver, this could be perfect!

  • Costs almost the same as silver.
  • Golden Moments are not a precious metal
  • Charms do not need Hallmarked.
  • They are a solid golden metal alloy NOT PLATED and will not wear off
  • All metals will tarnish – this will too – but a cleaning cloth and a gentle wipe will bring it back to its shining glory.
  • I’ll give you a free cleaning cloth!
  • It is a very robust and strong metal – it will not scratch or damage easily.
  • Golden Moments are better suited to more defined fingerprints – so toddlers through to adults, and pets too! Miniprints will suit better for babies.

6. Miniaturised Charms of YOUR child

Mother's Day Gift Guide 2020 22

Are you looking for a truly Impressive gift?

These solid Sterling Silver charms are miniaturised from your child’s hand and foot!! How awesome is that?

The price might look high, but if you investigate this style of jewellery you will find that only a handful of people in the UK can offer these, and nobody (that I am aware of) is doing them for as good a price!

These charms are made entirely by myself – I have developed my own technique that is different to the rest of the UK market.

This doesn’t mean they are only limited to my local clients because I am building a network of lifecasters who will be on hand to help create the initial lifecasts. (I need the lifecast as the first stage in creating these).

Find out more about these Impressive ‘Tiny Treasures’…with split payments, they are much more affordable than you may think, and such a talking point!

Got a question?

I’m sure you have lots of questions. Here are a few I’ve been asked recently…(click on the question to see the answer). If you’d like to know anything – just ask!

I live too far away - can I order anything?

Yes, all jewellery can be made by posting out a kit for you to take the initial prints.  You may even have hand/footprints already that I can use…best to get in touch and ask.  Call me on 07837800353 or email [email protected] 

My budget is under £25 can you help?

Yes, I have lots of ceramic options for you to create in this budget.  Take a look…

I am a mum of many...can jewellery combine more than one child?

Yes, I have lots of jewellery designs that can show off your impressive children no matter how many you have!

Do you have any gift ideas for 'mum-to-be'?

Gift Vouchers are a perfect idea! Let the new parents decide what they’d like to create once their little bundle arrives.

I've left it too late - HELP?

It’s never too late!! Have you seen my NEW GIFT EXPERIENCES? They are available 24/7 and fully downloadable gift option!

Or why not order an item and have the print/impression kit ready to take the impressions on Mother’s Day – with the Impressive Mum, then have your piece made. You waited 9 months for a baby, you can wait a fortnight for your jewellery 😉

I'm a mum to an angel, can I have anything made?

If you have ink prints or hand/footprints I can turn these into jewellery for you. The originals will come to no harm.  I also make memorial keepsakes from locks of hair and cremation ashes too.

Drop me an email if you’d like me to help [email protected]  or call for a chat on 07837800353.

My mum has passed away, could I remember her on Mother's Day?

Take a look at my Memorial & Bereavement Memories Page. Also HERE is another blog with suggestions too – and see if you’d like to remember your mum with any of these ideas. Drop me an email if you’d like me to help [email protected]  or call for a chat on 07837800353.

Mother's Day - 22nd March 2020

Mother's Day Gift Guide 2020 23If you’re a mum, a step-mum, a foster mum, an adopted mum…If you’ve been a mum, you’ll be a mum soon, or you had an awesome mum who’s now passed…

If you’re able to go and hug your mum and tell her how amazing she is on the 22nd of March – do it!!

And not just on this one day, because mums never stop being mums…

Be sure to make their day Impressive and filled with Memories.

Happy Mother’s Day from me,

Gold fingerprint hand made jewellery

Gold fingerprint hand made jewellery

Gold Fingerprint Jewellery

Fingerprint jewellery is such a unique way to wear bespoke jewellery. Made just for you, it can capture a moment, milestone or a memory, for you to treasure it for a lifetime.

What is your favourite jewellery to wear? Do you like warm golds or cool whites and silvers? What about rose gold? Do you mix your jewellery up or always keep to the same precious metals?

There are so many choices, aren't there?

You may have noticed there are a lot of people offering silver fingerprint jewellery, but not as many offering gold.

I get asked a lot for gold fingerprint jewellery, especially rose gold, but the issue has always been the price.

The problem is that gold is a very expensive precious metal.

What if there was an alternative solution?

  • Are you considering investing in gold fingerprint jewellery?
  • Do you love the idea of fingerprint jewellery but usually find it’s made in silver, which you don’t wear?
  • Have you looked online and found that gold fingerprint jewellery is possible, but the price tag is way over your budget?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of those questions – keep reading…

Golden Moments by Impressive Memories

medium golden ink print fingerprint charm

This charm is made from an INK FINGERPRINT.

triple teardrop

These stacked charms are created from PUTTY FINGERPRINT IMPRESSIONS.

How have I solved the problem and made gold fingerprint jewellery as affordable as silver?

At Impressive Memories, my aim is to create beautiful, high-quality products. I pride myself on using the best materials and creating work of a very high standard.

At the same time, I also appreciate that the budget is important.

A solid gold hallmarked, fingerprint charm will cost approximately £500 to make. There are many jewelers who can do this for you.

My solution gives you a golden charm with all the beauty of gold but will cost you much less, almost a tenth of the price – Golden Moments charms start at just over £70.

I've made gold fingerprint jewellery affordable: How?

  • Hallmarked gold is a precious metal made in 9ct, 18ct & 21ct depending on the amount of 'pure' gold mixed into an alloy of metals. My Golden Moments range is an alloyed metal but does not contain traditional gold. 
  • My Charms do not need Hallmarked. Traditional gold over 1g in weight is required by law to be assayed and hallmarked by an Assay Office. I am registered with the Edinburgh Assay Office. This allows me to have my work hallmarked if I need to.
  • My Golden Moments are a solid golden metal alloy, not plated, the ‘gold’ will not wear off. Gold plating another metal to give a 'coating' of gold is a temporary solution to wanting a gold finish.
  • All metals will tarnish – this will too – but a cleaning cloth and a gentle wipe will bring it back to its shining glory (I’ll give you a free cleaning cloth to get you started). 
  • Golden Moments are very robust and strong – they will not scratch or damage easily.
golden inkprint fingerprint triple charm

These stacked hearts are created from INK FINGERPRINTS

A handmade golden charm with an imprint of a childs hand or foot.

HAND & FOOT prints, PAW prints too, can be worn on your golden jewellery.

What do I need to create Golden Moment Fingerprint Jewellery?

  1. An INK PRINT of the fingerprint, hand, foot or paw print. I have the kit you need to do this cleanly and easily.
  2. A FINGERPRINT IMPRESSION in putty. I have the kit you need to do this cleanly and easily.

3 points to consider

  1. Some jewellers can make you a charm in genuine gold using engraving from an ink/digital print.
  2. Fingerprint charms can be made in gold using a much older technique. The process of ‘lost wax’ is thousands of years old…a beautifully skilled method. Again, the cost for a gold charm is usually upwards of £500. If you have that budget then there are many excellent jewellers who can make you a gold, fingerprint charm.
  3. Hallmarking is another cost implication. Any gold jewellery over 1g in weight must legally be hallmarked (the legal weight for silver is higher at 7.78g).  The Edinburgh Assay website can answer all those questions.

Are Golden Moments right for me?

Perfect for you if –

  • You’d rather spend £70 than £500
  • You wear gold jewellery not silver
  • You have a fingerprint in mind that you’d like to be wearing
  • I already have your fingerprints from a previous order
  • You need strong, hardwearing jewellery that goes where you go – in the shower, chewed by your todder…yup, they ALL do it!
  • You deserve a touch of luxury in your life, without bustin’ the bank balance

NOT Perfect for you if –

  • You’d rather spend £500 on a hallmarked solid gold charm.

Are you ready to start creating YOUR golden jewellery today?

From the comfort of your home, you can order your Golden Moments charm today.

I will post out a kit for you to capture the prints that I need, so distance is not a problem.

Or you’re more than welcome to make a booking and come and visit me, and I can take the prints for you.

 

Back to School…

Back to School…

Who’s heading off to school?

Back to School... 24

Erin starting P1 – ten years ago xxx

  • Are you relieved to wave them off back to wonderful school life?
  • Maybe you’ll be looking forward to a moment of peace and not hearing “MUUUUM” repeatedly?
  • Have you started threatening that bedtime will be becoming earlier yet?
  • Does the prospect of going food shopping alone actually sound quite appealing?

Starting School…

Waaaaahhh…The moment feared by many! The BIG day arrives – THEY’RE STARTING SCHOOL!

You feel excited and proud that they are growing up, but sad to watch them becoming more independent and not needing us so much.  Realising how precious those first few years are and wanting them to slow down!!

  • Is your little person skipping off down the school path, beginning their journey into education?
  • Have you been reminiscing and wondering where the hell the last 4 years have gone to?
  • Have you ironed name labels onto every piece of fabric? (Did you see the hack to use your hair straighteners instead of the iron? Personally, I’d rather break my iron than my GHD’s…)

Are you lying awake at 3am overthinking?

  • What if he doesn’t make friends?
  • What if she gets bullied?
  • What if they can’t manage the work?
  • What if they cry when I go?

Stop Worrying!

Be impressively proud that you have created an independent little sponge who is ready to soak up all the new learning and experiences that school will bring them.  Capture this milestone, remember with satisfaction that YOU created this fabulous little human who is now stepping up, and stepping out into their journey.  What better reward could you ask for than knowing you helped them begin their expedition?

Mums know how hard it is to let go of that little hand, and teachers do too. That little hand that you’ve nurtured and watch grow. You held it tight and kept them safe, and now it’s time to let it go…just a tiny bit…

handsSo STOP WORRYING about them, because they will be absolutely, perfectly happy…they will have a coat hook AND a tray…with THEIR name on it.  Your little sponge will be safe, cared for, looked after, guided, nurtured and ready to flourish – Why? Because YOU gave them everything they needed – go you!!

Celebrate the impressive memories of this special day.

Starting school is one of life’s very Impressive Memories.

Letting go of that little hand at the school gate. Trusting your most precious possession to skip off along the path, on their new adventure.That little hand that you’ve held so tightly, has grown, and keeps on growing. Where do the years go??? Your little person has reached ANOTHER milestone.

Here at Impressive Memories we prefer to hold on to these moments. Don’t let them fade to a memory…treasure them! It’s time to reward yourself!

 

Back to School... 29

Come and Paint a Memory!

Make an impressive memory of that little hand on a beautiful ceramic mug. Treasure the moment and remember how much this little hand has grown, and how much more growing it has ahead of it! A great way to remember this milestone moment.

Why not make one for an Impressive Granny too?

Message me, comment or call to find out more…

Have those cameras poised with stiff new uniforms (with plenty growing room) and smell the whiff of new gym shoes in the air.

Oh, and guess what?…there’s only 38 school days until the October Holidays! YAY!!
