It's Amazing Where Your Jewellery Can End Up!

A couple of months ago I received an email from Liv at the Wildfowl and Wetland Centre at Arundel in West Sussex which is about an hour's drive from me, asking me if would be interested in a wholesale order for the gift shop at the centre.

After setting up a meeting where I took some of my jewellery to show the manager, Liv and another member of staff and agreeing terms, I waited to hear if the Wetland Centre's head office would agree to them placing an order. They did and a few weeks later I received an order for 40 pieces!

Fantastic, I thought, I can do that! I've just started a new job but hell, I can do that! It took about 2 weeks altogether as most of the pieces are oxidised plus making all the earwires and oxidising and cleaning those up too but I did it. I did take some stock from my Folksy shop to save time and experimented with using a radial disc polisher on my Dremel to clean up some of the oxidised pieces (it worked and saved a lot of time!) and finally everything was ready.

Just a few of the oxidised pieces waiting to be cleaned up!

All bagged up and ready to go followed by a big sigh of relief!

I'd love to show some photos of the Wetland centre too but unfortunately they're copyrighted so I'd better not. I'll be honest I had no idea there was a wetland centre in Arundel. I've been there several times and it turns out the centre is a bit further along a road from The Black Rabbit pub I've visited quite a few times :D


  1. well done I can see why they wanted your jewellery its wonderful x

  2. That's fantastic - what a lovely wholesale order for you! Hope it sells well. Might have to pop over there at some point - it's about an hour from here, and I've never been to Arundel.
