(2) The Jewellery
Tell Me About What You Make
All of the jewellery is hand-crafted by me in my studio.
I use a torch to melt the glass, kiln to slowly cool and anneal the beads, and sterling silver and silk to create lovely colourful jewellery.
All of my beads go through an annealing process which makes them strong and each piece is inspected by me as I am creating the piece. But glass is still fragile and should be treated with care.
Sterling silver oxidizes due to a chemical reaction with the moisture in the air. To keep your Luma pieces shiny and lovely, store them in a plastic zippy bag.
I'm really excited that now ALL of the silver I use in my designs comes from reclaimed sources so is 100% recyelced! Isn't it nice to know that you can wear something beautiful and know that your actions are not further harming this lovely planet?
