Buy online for collection or post
New! You can now buy some of my jewellery online through ShopAppy, which puts local shopping online. You can pay online and then either collect from Rugby town centre, or I can post.
Bricks and mortar
You can find pieces of my jewellery in two bricks-and-mortar shops. Please contact them before you travel to check whether they are open.
Fosse House Gallery in Dunchurch, CV22 6NH. A lovely gallery and picture framer’s – a little oasis of calm and of beautiful things.
Simply Salvaged Interiors (cabinet 35, now located in the central aisle of the main part of the shop) at Heart of the Shires shopping village, NN7 4 LB. A treasure trove of handmade, vintage, upcycled, and curiosities in a Victorian shopping village, with a restaurant and play area too. This is where the largest selection of my jewellery is available.
You also can find me in real life at occasional events.
Instagram @ditherellasworkshop is the place to go to see what I am making now – with a few non-jewellery digressions!
I’m afraid I currently only sell within the UK. This is because selling to and shipping overseas, and in particular to the EU, has become enormously more complicated since Brexit. If you’d like to know more about what is involved, take a look at this guide by Jewellers Academy.
Hallmarking. What is it? How does it show that you are buying the real thing?
Hallmarking is required under UK law for precious metals over a threshold weight. Most of my pieces are under the threshold weight but I choose to have most of my pieces hallmarked. If you can’t see the mark on the piece or its photo, do ask!
Hallmarking isn’t just stamping “925” or “silver” on an item, but having the piece submitted to an assay office where the metal is analysed and, if it meets the required grade, the component marks of the hallmark are applied, by punch or laser: the sponsor mark (my initials JEB), the fineness mark, and the assay office mark
Anyone selling items made from precious metals is required to display the Dealer Notice, which gives buyers information about hallmarking. You can download the Dealer Notice in PDF by the link below:
