Let Us Help You Create Jewellery From Your Children's Drawings
We know that the idea of creating a piece of silver jewellery from your child's drawings can seem a bit overwhelming. We have answered many questions over the years and have shared a quite a few of these to help guide you. We love to talk to people about our jewellery, so do feel free to get in touch if you want some more guidance.
No, in fact we prefer not to take custody of your precious drawings...it makes us nervous! A good quality colour copy is best for us to work from.
Not at all. Any size drawing can be scaled down to the size we need to work from, so let your little artist go wild.
No drawings will be damaged in the process! We use your drawing as a guide for our intricate work, but we do not do anything to the artwork at all.
If you can scan the drawing that's great. But you could also take a photograph of it (handy if Mum might notice the drawing was missing from the fridge door) and send that. Colour photocopies also do the trick, but if you need any help then let us know.
Most of the jewellery we make is made from the finest quality sterling silver. The blackened detail is created by oxidising, or blackening, the silver in areas to add detail. We also take commissions in other precious metals, so get in touch if you have an idea.
We pride ourselves on the quality of the precious metal jewellery we create. Each piece is individually sent to Birmingham Assay Office. Here the precious metal is tested before being stamped with the British Hallmark and our own designer stamp.
Avril Manderson still oversees the design and manufacture of each piece of AM Jewellery. She has a small support team to help with but she won't let anyone else near the studio!
Of course, we don't want to leave anyone out. Drawings from quite a few children can be worked into even the smallest of pieces and we will try our best to design something that incorporates a little bit of each of their art. Simply get in touch and we can discuss your options.
We don't forget about the tiniest artists, and handprints and squiggles can all be used to make their mark. Get in touch and we can help you choose the best way to capture their personality in precious metal.
Each piece of jewellery is supplied in a branded AM Jewellery black box with a hinged lid. This allows a miniature version of the children's drawings to be added to the inside. Our customers tell us this really adds to the experience when opening the gift.
Like so much in life, you get what you pay for! Avril spent many years training as a silversmith and has devoted almost 15 years to perfecting the art of creating truly personalised jewellery. Each piece takes hours to make by hand, from the initial design to the final polish. Our jewellery is a quality, hallmarked, handmade piece that will last for many years and we like to think of future generations discovering the stories behind our creations.
No problem! When Avril started the business she didn't have an online shop and each piece was designed from scratch. Over the years she found drawings tend to work best in a particular range of jewellery pieces, and so the shop was created to make it easier for customers to order. But Avril still loves to work with customers on new ideas. Get in touch and we will arrange for Avril to discuss your requirements.
We have made jewellery from lots of 'things' over the years. From adult drawings, to company logos and even photographs of a mountain range. If you have an idea for an original piece of jewellery get in touch and we will be happy to help.
We can guarantee you will! Our devotion to you means that we strive to create quality jewellery that is a true reflection of your child's drawing. If there is something you are not happy with, just let us know. Our reputation for quality jewellery has grown for almost 15 years, and thousands of happy customers are a tribute to our high standards of craftsmanship.
