Make an Impact - Stand Behind the Serpent & Swan

You may have noticed prices increasing in everything you buy.

Small businesses unfortunately have higher costs because they are unable to get the same discounts as major brands & franchises.

As a one women business who is expanding & looking to be able to take on a team and also pay myself a living wage for all the time, creativity and sweat, that I’ve invested into my business.

Unfortunately in these times, increasing prices is inevitable.

Otherwise I’m simply working at a loss.

Unlike the big jewellery chains who mark up their prices by 500 to 1000%.

I’m marking up my jewellery pieces considerably less. 

Especially given the unique craftsmanship of my designs.

I continue to offer lower priced items and also investment pieces on affordable payment plans.

I consciously create jewellery that will be treassured and worn for generations.

My jewellery is not produced in a factory in China.

It is not a mass produced ring that looks the same as everyone else’s.

Each piece is handcrafted by hand.

My hands.

Therefore no two of our designs will ever be exactly the same.

I love the fact my customers come back because they value the craftsmanship of my work.

They know they are investing in some truly special pieces.

Jewellery pieces that will be treasured and worn for generations.

Remember every time you buy from a small business someone does a happy dance because it truly means they can afford:

📌Groceries for that week.

📌To take their child out for ice cream.

📌To pay their electricity bill for another month.

📌To continue paying the rent on the studio they design in.

📌To be able to purchase the high quality materials to craft your jewellery.

Most of us have created a business that uses a lot of our free time and now we are hoping to continue to sustain that business.

We are committed to giving you an alternative to cheap costume jewellery or mass produced commercial jewellery.

We love all our Serpent and the Swan customers and hope to still be creating bespoke pieces for you for decades to come.

Thanks for all your support! Much love
