Baskets

March 08, 2011

It was my Dad's birthday recently; here is a picture of him with his brother and sister a good few years ago. He is the boy in the middle with his socks falling down!

So, as usual, the question "what do we get him" arose. Well, over the last few years he has been growing various different types of willow, as he enjoys watching them grow.


Willows in the distance.

A few months ago, my brother Andrew and his son Jack decided to have a go at basket making. A very good attempt I think!

A few months later at a craft fair I chatted to local basket maker Jenny Crisp who agreed to make my Dad a basket using his own willows. He was very surprised and delighted to see the full circle from field to basket!

Ring sizing

Sue makes rings to the size your 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 by cheque or back transfer).
  2. You (the customer) ensure it's 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.

Sue will happily resize, refinish or repolish the ring at any time after the 14 days have expired, but at a cost based on the time needed to fulfil the work which Sue can quote before you return the ring.

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.
