great photo. Thank you, Melina
Terry from Canada who bought a tooled leather edition of Robert Burns Poems
The lovely book arrived safely early this afternoon. It will be a
great addition to my collection of Scottish literature!
Your super continued customer service is also appreciated!
I come from a family of jewelers and so like a magpie have always loved glittery beauty!
Beauty is not necessarily attached to price and so I like to buy things, both great and small, but all of them made by people who are, or were skilled in their own areas, be they master jewelers or scratch board artists.
I have sold items to the Stiftung Moritzburg Kunstmuseum des Landes Sachsen-Anhalt, the Museum fur kinst und gewerbe Hamburg and the Burrell Collection (Costume Museum) in Glasgow among others.
I have a great love of dogs and so don't be surprised to see both art and jewels featuring our canine friends.
I hope you enjoy seeing, and owning my items as much as I have enjoyed finding them for you.
I have traveled all over the world, from Italy to India, from California to Brazil which has given me an appreciation for all the diverse beauty that flowers from differing cultures.
Travelling has given me an appreciation of the natural world and our environment and I have NEVER & WILL NEVER trade in IVORY, TORTOISESHELL, TIGER CLAW JEWELRY NEITHER WILL I TRADE IN ITEMS FROM CITES II APPENDIX - SUCH AS HIPPOPOTAMUS IVORY, neither will I trade in itens such as MAMMOTH IVORY which despite protestations that it is easy to distinguish from elephant ivory, according to the US Wildlife department the only way to be certain of the ivory's origin is to subject it to identification by a trained scientist. I quote from their E-Ivory-Guide.pdf
"One point which must be emphasized: while the methods described in this handbook are reliable for the purposes described (i.e.: tentative visual identification, and “probable cause” to seize as evidence),
an examination of the carved ivory object by a trained scientist is still necessary to obtain a positive identification of the species source.
We hope that this handbook proves to be useful to you
in your endeavors to protect ivory-bearing species.

Even trading in antique items made of mammoth ivory (actually extremely rare as it is only recently that mammoth ivory has been used as an elephant ivory substitute and so if the item proportes to be antique it is either new, or probably elephant ivory) of this nature stimulates poachers, because they know that if people buy antique ivory, they will buy modern ivory, although of course many dealers in endangerd animal parts will 'age' the item so it appears antique.
Miniature portraits are usually painted on ivory, and dealers who wish to avoid disclosing they are trading in ivory have begun to describe this ivory as 'wafer' 'natural wafer' & 'naturally grained material' . Ox Bone is also often used as an euphemism for ivory. So if you don't want to buy ivory, don't buy these items either!
Full Address happily given on purchase advice - and you can always ring me! But remember, I am in the UK.
