Please read as contains important and additional information.
With my handcrafted and hand finished items, slight variations will occur due to being made and finished by hand. This also ensures that each piece has its own individuality.
My pieces are put together manually with florist tape, using a spiral wrapping technique, this can be visible and gives our pieces their unique and distinctive look.
All of my cold porcelain pieces are coated in a fine acrylic top coat, this protects them and enables them to be lightly dusted and become water resistant. This is especially useful for the glass decorations as overflow can sometimes occur when drink is poured. However, our pieces should not be fully submerged in liquid or continually drenched, or scrubbed, as I cannot guarantee that the piece will not be affected by this. Glass decorations should be removed fully if glass is to be washed up. It is not advisable to put the toasting flute glass into the dishwasher due to the magnetic attachment.
The florist tape becomes tacky when stretched, this does dry, however, when removing the decoration from the glass, there may be a little residue from the tape on the glass stem, which is easily removed by wiping with a soft damp or dry cloth.
To use your pieces in the sunshine is fine. To keep enjoying your pieces year after year, it is advisable not to store them in direct sunlight, as this may cause them to discolour over time.
My pieces have the signature twined tendril stems and place card holders also have a bead foot which forms part of the wired tendril card holder. This support design has been created by myself and is unique to my pieces.
Where florist wires and beads are used, all wires are hand shaped and beads added by myself.
Beads used and shown in the pre-designed ranges are acrylic, they have a glass like appearance, are light and have greater colour range availability. Glass beads are available on request.
The smaller beads are glued directly onto the wire for ornamental use only, these will become detached if direct force used on them. Not suitable for children under the age of 3 years old.
As we all know, colours may vary to those shown on the screen, but rest assured, as you will be able to use our free colour matching service, if you should wish to.
