Each daisy is carefully cast with silver clay, and once fully dry starts the process of sanding, refining and buffing. These seven steps are vital to ensuring a beautiful finish. After this the piece is fired with a blow torch. This removes all impurities and we are left with a fine silver piece. The process of refining, buffing and polishing is then repeated until the piece is perfect. It is the soldered onto the sterling silver band.
Fine silver is made of 999 parts silver to every 1000 parts, compared with sterling silver which is 925 parts silver to every 1000 parts. The rest is usually copper to add strength as silver is naturally very soft. Therefore sterling silver is stronger but will tarnish in time, but fine silver of softer and much less likely to tarnish.
The ring is presented in a ring box.
This ring would suit people of any age, especially if they love daisies.

I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in 2002. this is an Inflammatory Bowel Disease which causes diarrhoea, bloody stools, weight loss, pain, fatigue, depression, anxiety and incontinence. After a few years and lots of medications, including immunosuppressant’s I became steroid dependant and in need of surgery in 2009. More than half a dozen surgeries later, a stoma, ongoing complications, losing my job, more weight loss and countless hospital stays, I had my final operation in 2012. I now have an ileoanal pouch. Since then I have developed extreme Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Nerve Damage and Joint Pain.
While off sick recovering from pouchitis and Anxiety in 2014, I joined a local craft workshop. It was here that I started making jewellery. I loved it straight away. I have always loved practical activities, and as a primary school teacher I enjoy teaching the practical subjects such as science and design technology. The jewellery making fulfilled a need in me to create; its very therapeutic. I began making more and more things and trying different techniques. My favourite is beading. It soon became clear that I would have to give up teaching altogether. Soon after that I started my own business. It allows me to work when I’m able and rest when I need to.
I make IBD awareness jewellery to raise money for Crohn’s and Colitis UK (CCUK), a national charity which has helped me a great deal on my journey. I also make awareness bracelets in aide of Children’s Liver Disease Foundation (CLDF), GoGold for childhood cancer (money raised goes to Clic Sargent) and Sickle Cell disease (Sicklekan), as I have people who are close to me who are affected by these conditions.
I also run jewellery making parties and workshops for children and adults. These are a great opportunity for me to practice my two loves of teaching and jewellery making.
