Pleased to meet Ewe...the story of our sheep earrings!

Pleased to meet Ewe...the story of our sheep earrings! 0

This little line-up of sheep earrings have just met their partners for life!

Our silversmiths make each individual sheep earring by hand...curling the fine silver fleece before soldering on their head and legs.  This makes each little sheep a real one-of-a-kind.  But it also means we can't just match up any two!

Our silversmiths take a morning every month to carefully line up all the earrings.  They sort the flock before choosing the perfect partner.  Each pair are then carefully inspected and the final touches added to make sure they look as similar as possible.

It's a real sheepy love story!

Etching silver is a process that requires great skill.  Our talented silversmiths painstakingly mark out a pattern on sterling silver before etching the silver in an acid solution.  This process then leaves a permanent pattern in the silver ensuring a one-of-a-kind piece of jewellery.

Most of our etched jewellery has a brushed silver finish to let the contrast in colour and texture shine through.

This short video shows one of our silversmiths oxidising (or blackening) an etched silver sheep pattern.

Our handmade silver sheep charm bracelets are a popular part of our sheep jewellery range.  We recently did a count of our flock and realised we have 14 different breeds in our flock!

In addition to the breeds we stock in our online shop, our team of silversmiths can make a silver sheep charm based on your favourite sheep breed or even based on a photo of your favourite sheep!  Just get in touch if you have a design idea.

All our sheep charms come with a choice of clip or Pandora-style fastenings so will suit many bracelets you might already own.  Charms can be purchased on their own, or with one of our sterling silver belcher chain or Pandora-style bracelets.

People tell us they even wear the clip fastening charms on their necklaces!

Suffolk Sheep Jewellery

Suffolk Sheep Jewellery 0

Suffolk sheep were the breed our Designer, Avril Manderson, modelled her first ever sheep brooch on back in 2011.

Since then we have expanded the range of Suffolk Sheep jewellery to include necklaces, brooches, charm bracelets, cufflinks and much more.

We have retained the handmade quality of the original brooch as each piece of Fresh Fleeces jewellery is created by hand.  The black head and legs are achieved by enamelling the sterling silver making for a striking contrast with the curled fine silver fleece.

Our range of Suffolk sheep jewellery makes a great sheep gift for men and women.
