What are Shirt Studs?

Monday, 5 August 2013  |  James

Shirt studs are decorative fasteners often made from precious metals such as sterling silver, set with stones; onyx and mother of pearl being the most popular, but almost any stone can be used to decorate the shirt stud.

Shirt studs fit into the buttonhole that can be found on the front of specially made pleated shirts, or the starched bib, on the front of stiff shirts.

Shirt studs were first used in the mid 1800's when many shirts were far to stiff to close with regular buttons, even though they are less common now days, they are still used on some men's formal wear, and semi-formal wear.

How to clean sterling silver cufflinks?

Sunday, 28 July 2013  |  James

As with all sterling silver, you can get tarnishing, with cufflinks this can be fairly difficult to clean, and although some people prefer the natural look that tarnishing gives their sterling silver, others want their sterling silver cufflinks to look as good as the day that purchased them.

You can attempt to use a jewellers silver polishing cloth, but with some cufflinks with lots of detail this can be a never ending process, probably the best, and fastest way to clean your silver cufflinks is to get a jewellery dip, this can be purchased from most supermarkets, and is a clear liquid into which you can dip your jewellery.

If you choose to use the jewellery dip, attach something to each of the cufflinks like a piece of cotton, and place a weight onto the other end, this could be anything such as a spoon, put each of the links into the dip, leaving the weighted end outside of the jar, and leave for about 1-2 minutes, you will be able to see the chemical reaction taking place in the jar as the tarnish is being removed.

Take the cufflinks out of the dip and then using some warm water just give each of the links a wash to stop the cleaning process that occurs even outside of the jewellery dip continuing. Then pat each of the cufflinks dry using a paper towel, do not rub the cufflinks with anything abrasive as this can scratch the silver.

Once dry take a silver polishing cloth and clean each of the cufflinks back to a highly polished finished, and your cufflinks should now look like new.

You can use this same method to clean all your sterling silver jewellery.

Try not to get any of the jewellery dip onto you hands or clothes, it is recommended you wear some rubber gloves when using any jewellery cleaner.

What is the meaning of the Dream Catcher Necklace?

Saturday, 27 July 2013  |  James

The dream catcher necklace according to the Native Americans is used to catch the dreams that are sent while we are sleeping by the sacred spirits, is is believed that the dreams are sent as messages, and the hole in the middle of the web is used to filter the good dreams, while all the bad dreams are caught in the web around the hole, and upon first light the bad dream are all discarded of.

The parts of the dream catcher necklace are all relative as well, with beads throughout used to represent the bad dreams, a single bead in the middle is used to represent a spider, whilst the feathers, which would have traditionally have been owl feathers for woman, and an eagles feather for men, representing wisdom and courage, are there so that the necklace know who the wear is, to enable filtering of the dreams.

Saturday, 27 July 2013  |  James

How do I measure a babies wrist size for a bangle/bracelet?

The best way to determine the correct size bangle or bracelet for a baby or young child, is to use a tape measure to measure around the babies wrist where the bangle or bracelet will be worn, lightly wrap the tape measure around the wrist with no gaps or spaces, then once you have taken the measurement add 1/2 inch (12mm) to the measurement this will give you the perfect fit for baby or if it is a child/toddler add 1/2 inch (12mm) or 3/4 inch (18mm) depending on required fit.

Alternatively use the table below for a guide to the correct size

Newborn Baby - 4.25"
3 - 6 months - 4.5"

What is a Pomander Locket?

Saturday, 27 July 2013  |  James

What is a Pomander Locket?

Pomander lockets date from as early as the mid 13th century, and can be seen in use through to the 17th century. The word Pomander comes from the French word pomme d'ambre.

The best way to think of a Pomander locket is an early deodorant or perfume, a pomander is a perfume ball, which could be carried around the neck in a locket with an open front to allow the smell to follow the wearer, this being times when personal hygiene was not as it is nowadays, and would hopefully cover any bad smells, the pomander ball would also be placed in a small vase carried in the pocket, or attached to the belt or girdle.

Pomanders where mainly made from sterling silver or gold, this is probably due to the fact that is was mainly the upper classes that used them.

How to Make a Photo Fit Inside a Locket

Friday, 26 July 2013  |  James

 

How to Make a Photo Fit Inside a Locket

1. Once you have chosen the photo you would like to place into you locket, you have a few options, you can use the existing photo if it is the right size, and you don't mind cutting it up to fit inside the locket, or you can make a copy of the picture, and re-print it at a suitable size to fit into the locket (we will cover this in a later article).

2. Take the locket you wish the photo to fit into, open it up, and using a washable paint (normally a kiddies paint is best), paint around the inside frame of the locket and press this onto a piece of white paper, this should give you a rough outline of the border of the locket, please do not press the whole locket as this can damage the hinge, try to press just one side.

3. As soon as you have completed step 2, wash the paint of the locket, and polish the locket back to its original condition. 

4. Now you are ready to cut around the shape you pressed onto the white paper, carefully cut around the outline left on the paper, and you should now have a piece of paper the same size as the frame of the locket.

5. Overlay your piece of cutout paper onto the photo you wish to place into the locket, making sure you take your time to position it in the correct place, and then cut around the shape cutting the photo underneath, it is best to leave a little bit of extra space around the edge, cutting the photo slightly larger than the shape you cut out in step 4, this will allow the photo to fit within the frame.

6. You should now have a photo that will fit into the photo frame of the locket, if at this stage the photo is still a little to large you can cut a little more of to ensure a nice fit within the locket.

7. If your locket can hold more than one photo, repeat step 5 for any other photos you would like to place inside the locket.

 
And that is how we cut a photo to make it fit inside a locket.

Where does the Anklet Originate?

Friday, 26 July 2013  |  James

Where does the Anklet Originate?

The Anklet dates back as far back as the Bronze Age, with early signs being seen in Europe around 1800 BC, and they can also be see in ancient Egypt, where it would have been referred to as a foot bracelet, back in ancient Egypt anklets where made from materials such as gold among the very rich, or iron and silver worn by the lower classes.

Anklets are and have been a popular tradition in India for many centuries, known as pajeb, paayal or jhanjhar, meaning chains, and many examples show heavy chains that are difficult to walk in, often with bells attached, so that people around would know they were in the presence of a female, and they would also make pleasing sounds when moving around.

In the modern day western world anklets can be made from silver, gold, leather, or even nylon and plastic, and can be seen adorning the feet or mainly younger woman, however woman or all ages can and do wear anklets.

What foot should I wear an anklet on?
In many cultures anklets are often worn on both anklets, but in the modern western world woman tend to wear anklets on their right anklet, this is believed to be because most people are right handed.

Can men wear anklets?
In todays modern world, young men can often be seen wearing leather or wooden bead anklets.
