Materials used and the manufacturing process.
Hello Little Friday pieces are designed and handcrafted by me, Jo Kealley, in my Brisbane-based Studio. Each item is individually handpainted with acrylic paints and then a high gloss glass resin is applied to finish the pieces. This resin is cure for 72 hours to ensure a hard finish.
The findings on my Jewellery are a high quality, tarnish resistant, Sterling Silver, Antique Bronze or 18K Gold, plated finish. I have been using these fittings for over 12 years and import them directly from the United States.
Stud Earrings are set on Surgical Steel posts and backs.
Drop Earrings are set on either Sterling Silver, Antique Brass or 18K Gold Plated French hooks.
All jewellery findings are carefully & securely attached with a specialised jewellery adhesive.
I do strongly recommend removing all jewellery prior to swimming or bathing, and suggest avoiding the use of perfume aerosols near the fittings as in time these practices can dull the finishes. Homewares items and Artworks are intended for interior home use only.If you require any further information, or have and questions about my designs and processes you can email me via the Contact tab.
