The UK's departure from the EU customs union at the end of 2020 means we must stop all orders to the UK with immediate effect and until further notice.
Although our products are duty free for export to the UK, there is now a requirement for the buyer to pay UK VAT before collection, plus any charges for collecting the VAT made by the courier. This is in addition to excess paperwork and the need for us to have to register for UK VAT, even though we do not live there.
Despite trying to ascertain these charges, none of our usual couriers can tell us what these charges may amount to, but it is likely that in most cases the charges will amount to much more than the value of the goods.
We apologise for any inconvenience. This has also made it impossible for us to sell though UK based galleries, so we are actively searching for a solution.
Supplies to EU member states remain unaffected.
All jewellery is hand made by us in Monflanquin.
We use quality porcelain from Limoges with fixings in either nickel-free metal or sterling silver (92.5% pure).
As each piece is individually hand-cut or impressed by us, every item is unique.
We start off with a bag of porcelain and roll or shape it by hand before applying a pattern, often using a piece of antique French lace.
The pieces are then fired in our kiln. After the first firing any holes are drilled, then they are cleaned and glazed.
The items are then fired again at a high temperature - around 1260 degrees centigrade. We then assemble the pieces to make the final finished item.
