A beautiful sterling silver personalised handmade heart necklace.
This gorgeous necklace is the perfect gift for someone special or a lovely treat for yourself.
Every heart is handmade from scratch using two pieces of flattened sterling silver oval wire. Each piece is handstamped with a personal message, name or date then formed into a heart shape and carefully soldered together. Popular personalisation ideas are the names of loved ones, birthdays or wedding dates.
Additional hearts are available and you can also order the heart without a chain to add to your own chain or necklace.
I will happily match up new hearts to previous items ordered from Sarah Lawrence Jewellery too. Please message me if you are interested in this.
All pieces are entirely handmade to order and vary in size and length.
Each letter or number is hand stamped onto the silver (not engraved) and any irregularities are part of the charm and character.
The hearts are hung on a 40cm snake chain but 45cm, 50cm and 60cm chains are also available. Please make sure you choose which length of chain you require in the options box when ordering.
Please specify the personalisation required in the correct box when ordering. You can have up to 9 characters per side or you can leave one side blank if you prefer. Please type 'blank' in the personalisation box if no text is required and ensure all the details are correct when ordering.
The letter stamps I originally used were uppercase 'Dogtag' style but I later introduced 'Typewriter' style letters in upper and lowercase. If you have any preference please let me know or I will choose what I think will look best.
Each item of jewellery is sent in my customised gift boxes and can be gift wrapped for free in complimenting paper and a ribbon bow (I find this survives the post best).
A printed gift note is available on request when placing your order or a hand written gift card can also be added if you message me and it can all be posted direct to a lucky recipient.
Each piece is solid british 925 sterling silver which is prone to tarnishing so please try and keep your jewellery packaged away in it's box when it's not being worn, ideally in acid free tissue paper.
Avoid contact with make up, perfumes, creams on the skin and water or chlorine as these may cause the silver to blacken.
To clean the necklace I would recommend buffing it with a silver polishing cloth and occasionally dipping it in silver dip (available at most supermarkets). Please don't prolong conatct with the dip and thoroughly rinse your piece, ideally gently scrubbing it with a soft toothbrush and some washing up liquid before completely drying it.
Water will weaken the enamel so please avoid swimming or bathing in your necklace.
The hearts are made using 3.5mm x 2mm sterling silver oval wire and vary in length from 2cm to 4cm depending on the personalisation. The letters are 2.5mm in size and I can use a mix of upper and lower case letters and have limited punctuation marks.
The snake chain is 1.2mm in diameter.
If you have any specific requests regarding the size and shape of the hearts please message me i.e. please make it as small as possible or any size order preferences.
