July 2011: Pat, Mags, Annie and Sandra's Day Jewellery Workshop.

June 07, 2012

On Saturday 23rd July, I had the pleasure of spending the day with Pat, Mags, Annie and Sandra, who have been good friends for many years. For them the day is about having a relaxing and enjoyable time together to catch up while doing something a little different.

We made bangles and bracelets, all slightly different. Mags made 3 silver bangles linked with a gold loop, much like one of my designs. Annie made a silver linked bracelet, Sandra a wide bangle and soldered 3 silver shapes that were from a very old ring, that had sentimental value, and Pat made a collection of 4 bangles that are held together. Time became a little short, so I am going to put the finishing touches to Pat's bangle....

We had a very enjoyable day, and ended the day with a lovely collection of jewellery.

Four happy students!


Here is Pat's bangle that I finished off including a loop much like my rings. Perhaps you might see bangles coming into my collection!

Ring sizing

Standard designs

Sue makes rings to the size you select when ordering. If the ring does not fit, then she will re-size the ring free of charge (once only) providing:

  1. You (the customer) pay £9 to cover Royal Mail Special Delivery costs for returning the ring to you (can be paid online or via bank transfer).
  2. You (the customer) ensure it is returned within 14 days of delivery.

Please contact Sue before returning a ring for a re-size; it is so useful to have a discussion to help gauge how much adjustment is needed.

Please note: rings must be returned via Royal Mail Special Delivery and opting for the appropriate insurance option to cover the cost of the item. Sue Lane is not responsible for the delivery costs of returning a ring for re-sizing or for lost or damaged rings whilst in transit. For more details, please read our Returns Policy.

After 14 days: Sue will happily resize but at a cost based on the time needed to fulfil the work plus postage. Sue can quote for any work before you return the ring.

Commissioned designs

Any item made just for you, that is not one of Sue's standard designs: You (the customer) need to ensure the size is correct before Sue commences any work. If your order doesn't fit, Sue may be able to resize for you depending on the design and stones used. There may well be a charge involved due to the complexity of the design and for working with stones that where not supplied by Sue which may be difficult to work with. Contact Sue to discuss if it is possible and she can let you know the cost involved, including postage.

Not sure of your ring size?

If you are not sure of your ring size, please contact Sue. She can arrange your order and then post out a free ring sizer to you. You then simply call or email with the measurement.
