Necklaces / Pendants by Ella Fearon-Low This necklace is part of the Cumulus Nimbus – Sub Collection Cumulus Nimbus is a sub-collection of my Cumulus Revolution Collection. This work is identifiable by its stronger more billowing ‘cumulus nimbus’ cloud shapes and the introduction of rose gold which sits well against the deep maroon tones of the Lucite. Tiny pink vintage pearls finish this collection off and also ensure that at least in its current form it will be a limited edition as they are finite in number. Note on materials: Lucite is one name for the plastic I use in my work. I enjoy the colours and collect industrial bin ends of unusual shades - one of which is used in this collection. It is lovely to see this material come to life when it is hand worked on a small scale.

I recommend applying make-up, creams and perfumes before wearing your jewellery as these can damage surface finishes, especially gold plate. Please do not wear overnight, in the shower, or for sports including swimming.Gold Plate: A good layer of very high carat gold is applied to the jewellery. As with all plating it can fade and rub away over the years but if care is taken it should last a long time. If gold plate becomes dull it can be brightened by gently cleaning in a very mild soapy mix with 1-2 drops of gentle washing up liquid diluted in warm water. Please take care not immerse any other elements such as vintage pearls at the same time. Dry with kitchen towel or a clean dry soft cloth.Oxidised Silver: Oxidising is a patina caused by a chemical reaction on the surface of the silver. All oxidised pieces are given several layers of a preservation wax. With wearing and handling the oxidised areas will develop a paler patina over time, showing your appreciation of the piece. Please do not clean pieces with any silver cleaning products as these will remove the oxidised surface. Lucite and Vintage Pearls: A lot of non-traditional and delicate materials are used in my work. Rub gently with a soft dry cloth free from chemicals to clean and brighten your jewellery – for example a glass cloth.
