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.

Ta da...meet the Texels!

You have been asking for this breed for quite a while, and we are delighted to welcome the Texels to the Fresh Fleeces' flock.

As soon as you see a Texel sheep you instantly recognise that face shape and nose.  Our designer Avril likes to run around the local countryside, and often has flocks of these curious faces peaking out at her as she plods past in her bright yellow t-shirt (who is this crazy lady)!

Perhaps it's because there are so many in our local area, or maybe it's because they look so cuddly... but we just love them and hope you do too.

This is the final addition to our range for 2016.  As always, if you have any other breed suggestions, do let us know.

Welcome the Cheviot sheep!

We have 3 sheep breeds in our range; Zwartbles, Herdwicks and Valais Blacknose.  We often receive requests for other breeds to be added to our flock and are pleased to announce the arrival of Cheviot sheep.

These sheep have distinctive faces and we captured their ear, face and nose detail by engraving and oxidising their heads.  We sent our prototype pendant to a Facebook fan who had asked about the breed.  Once she gave our little Cheviot sheep the thumbs up, we started work on the rest of our range.

We hope you like the result and look forward to hearing what you think.

If you have any ideas for new sheep breed we could make then do get in touch.

Big thank-you to all our fabulous customers!

Fresh Fleeces have been selling our sheep jewellery online for over a year now, and we really wanted to hear what our customers think of our products and service.  We recently carried out an email survey asking about the Fresh Fleeces experience.

We know inboxes around the country are often flooded with survey requests so we are very pleased so many of you took part.  We were overwhelmed by the number of customers who got in touch to complete the survey, well above the average industry response rate.

Quality is at the heart of all our work and each piece of jewellery is made by one of our experienced silversmiths.  So we were absolutely delighted that over 95% of customers thought their jewellery was high or very high quality.

So many of you commented on our customer service and we are so happy to hear this.  We really do try and go the extra mile to make sure Fresh Fleeces customers are happy.  If anything should go wrong with the service we try our best to leave you with a smile!

We also received some really useful information on other types of jewellery you would like to see.  It's great to hear your ideas for new designs, so do drop us a message if you have some ideas you would like to see in our shop.

We created this visual word-cloud from the results of the survey.  We thought it was a fun and easy way to capture our customer's responses!
