The process of handmade jewellery by LuLu & Charles Jewellery
We are happy to announce our website is now officially open for business. Our studio & small workshop is based in Consett, County Durham, where all our jewellery is individually handmade to order, produced from flat sheet milled metal or wire. Each individual component has been shaped and formed using a number of hand tools including pliers, files, gravers, piercing saws, hammers, doming blocks & punches. Using a gas torch each part is then carefully soldered together with small chips of solder and flux. Once fully soldered, the jewellery is quenched in water then sits in a small heated pickle pot, which cleans the metal. Each piece is polished at regular stages throughout the process, using assorted hand tools, emery sticks and finally the motorised polishing buff & mop to leave that final mirror finish. We pride ourselves on producing high quality jewellery which is truly treasured!
