The art and beauty of handmade jewellery is alive and well here at MarMoo. People have been asking how we go about creating our sterling silver range so we thought we would give you an insight into the process.
Once we have come up with a new design it is drawn up using paper and pencil. Next we create a technical drawing finalising the shapes and measurements to be used and a detailed description of the design.
Finally we use traditional silver smithing techniques, taking great care to ensure that every piece is as lovely as the last and that there is consistency throughout. You may have noticed that the majority of our work has leaves and flowers on, these have been applied using 18th Century stamps so that we can merge the old and the new in complete synergy. These well loved, cast iron stamps leave 3D impressions of petals and leaf veins in fine detail on the jewellery and the hand finished process means that each impression is never exactly the same, providing a unique collection, full of charm.
Why we use Garnets in our jewellery
Garnet is found around the world, and though it is commonly known to be red, it can be found in a variety of colours.
Garnet is known for its utilisation of creative energy. It grounds the body and helps in the ability to give a lovingly feeling when worn, it is a sensual stone. It is a stone of strong, intense feelings.
