How Melanie Hay Jewellery is Made.

To ensure authenticity, quality & consistency all Melanie Hay Jewellery is hand made to order in my East Maitland studio using a variety of traditional metal smithing & jewellery making techniques.

Each Silver shape, form or ring in my Range is carefully:

  • hand sawn
  • filed
  • patterned
  • soldered
  • shaped
  • edged
  • antiqued
  • & hand polished

from Argentium Sterling Silver Sheet & or wire.

The patterning on every Silver shape is achieved using a process called embossing so each piece of Melanie Hay Jewellery has it’s own characteristic pattern & finish.

To highlight these embossed patterns, pieces are immersed in a blackening solution & hand polished right back.
