Made to order...just for you!

Did you know we can make a piece of sheep or other animal jewellery exactly to your individual requirements?

Here at Fresh Fleeces we have a commissioning service that deals one-to-one with customers to create pieces of jewellery you won't find in our online store.  You can send us pictures of an animal you have, or simply one you find online, and we can work from that to make a piece of jewellery from a metal of your choice.

So whether you want a pair of cufflinks with 1 Pygmy goat and 1 Kerry Hill sheep, a 'Love Ewe' necklace with 1 Herdwick and 1 Zwartbles...the possibilities are endless.

Our fees start at £20 on top of our standard jewellery prices so designing a piece of jewellery that has a special meaning for you need not break the bank.

We can even etch images of your animal onto sterling silver.  The image below is of a recent commission we made for a lady called Trish.  When she and her daughter moved home abroad they had to leave behind their beloved Shih Tzu Snowy.  Trish's daughter was very upset and Trish commissioned us to make her this necklace as a permanent reminder of her special friend.

Trust us to deliver

We know it takes a lot of trust to buy a piece of jewellery from us online.  That's why we have teamed with Trustpilot, one of the world's largest customer review platforms, to give you confidence buying our silver sheep jewellery.

When Avril, our founder, set up Fresh Fleeces she ensured excellent customer care was at the heart of everything we do.  She says:  "I get really annoyed when things I buy online are disappointing and companies are hard to deal with.  Buying a piece of jewellery, whether for you or as a gift, should be enjoyable.  I am a very honest and open person and that's how I want Fresh Fleeces to do business"

We have a no-quibble guarantee and if you are not completely happy with any piece of sheep jewellery you buy from us, then we will go out of our way to put a smile on your face.  And if somehow we are unable to do that, then you'll get a full refund straight away...we can't say fairer than that!

We also have no hidden charges and prices included worldwide insured delivery.

A lot of our sheep jewellery sales are via word of mouth and we believe that our customer service is what drives this.  Avril says: "If you are happy then you tell your friends and it's great to get that personal endorsement."

Trustpilot collects reviews from customers a few weeks after they have received their jewellery.  This gives them a real chance to wear our jewellery and give an honest review of both our jewellery and customer service.

We are delighted to be one of the top 100 companies (No 44 at the minute!) in the very competitive jewellery category.  For a small company from Northern Ireland to be holding their own against the larger businesses worldwide is a great accolade and one we are very proud of.

We have made a short video featuring what our customers say and we'd love you to watch!  As always you can keep in touch with our team by following this link.

Happy birthday little sheep!

It's the 7th birthday of our first silver sheep necklace!

Our designer Avril has been making jewellery for many years.  But a long-time fascination with fine silver wire and a contrast of metal textures , alongside a lifelong love of sheep, led to our first necklace.

The first design was broadly based on the Suffolk breed along with a little touch of Shaun the Sheep cuteness!

It takes many metres of very pure and soft fine silver wire to make one of these pendants.  The fleece is carefully coiled by hand before the head and legs are soldered on.  One change over the years has been the addition of black enamel to make the contrast black of the head and legs really pop.

Each little sheep is made by hand from start to finish and we think this handmade quality makes each one unique. A certain tilt of the head can change an angelic little sheep into quite a playful character!

We have added to this range over the years and have sheep facing a variety of directions along with groups of 3 sheep that we call our Flock range.  We also have matching earrings, brooches, bracelets and even cufflinks for the men.  Have a look in our online store for the full range.

Happy birthday little one!

Watch us making a highland cow brooch

It takes some sterling silver, metres of enamelled copper wire and around 2 hours to make one of our highland cow brooches.  But we have created a really short video (less than 1 minute!) to give you a peek at the work that goes into our handmade jewellery.

Baa baa black sheep Friday

We won't be following the flock this Black Friday.

We know many businesses will be offering discounts over the coming days as part of Black Friday.  Here at Fresh Fleeces we are choosing instead to use the day to focus on our range of black sheep jewellery.

As a small business working with a team of talented silversmiths we take great pride in our high standards.  We also take pride in our commitment to keeping our jewellery as keenly priced as possible all year round...not just one day of the year.

So you won't find prices slashed and cheap end of season pieces on our website...just the same quality handmade silver sheep jewellery gifts we make all the time.

Silver sheep lapel badge

When we started back in 2011 we only made sheep necklaces, earrings and brooches.  As ladies started to wear their Fresh Fleeces' creation, soon we had requests from men to make something for them.

Now we are further expanding our range for men by adding some sheep tie pins and lapel badges to the collection.  These match the heavyweight sterling silver sheep cufflinks already in our shop.

Do let us know if you have any other ideas for sheep jewellery gifts you would like to see us make.
