Our Jewellery workshop at Lee-on-the-Solent, Hampshire
We are privileged to have a workshop on show in the shop so you can watch us manufacture some pieces which are only available at Eltikki
or request us to make something for that special birthday. I have manufactured a lovely solid silver baby boy and girl which can be engraved
with the baby’s weight and date of birth - this is a fabulous christening gift. We also stock the “Tales of the Earth” range which includes a mini
silver zoo in a pouch or life’s charms.
Nikee qualilified from Bournemouth University with a degree in product design and manufacture. Due to her love and passion of jewellery she is
able to design you something bespoke, be it a ring, pendant or even a pair of cufflinks. When having something commissioned for yourself the design
is then developed around your ideas and passions which together with Nikee’s help will hopefully ensure you have a commissioned piece of jewellery
you will be proud to wear and will hold precious memories for you forever. Your jewellery can also be engraved with memories whether that is a child’s
date of birth or hand or footprint, whatever the memories, these can be held forever with your piece of jewellery.
If you would like to arrange an appointment with Nikee to have a meeting to discuss your ideas please contact us.
Nikee will then turn your ideas into a wonderful creation by first drawing sketches for you to choose from. The design and
manufacture process usually takes up to four weeks and you will be surprised
how affordable it is. We can also alter, mend or re-string existing pieces.
Whatever your enquiry please pop in to see us or use the form on our contact page and we will do our utmost to ensure you leave us happy.
Our Jewellery Classes
Learn how to make jewellery at Eltikki in Lee-on-the-Solent, Hampshire!
We also hold jewellery classes. Using silver clay, an extremely versatile, simple to use substance
which is relatively new to the field of jewellery making, you can make beautiful jewellery without many years of training as silversmiths!
Silverclay consists of minute particles of pure silver mixed with a non-toxic organic binder, which binds the silver particles together to
form a clay like substance. You can manipulate it just like clay and you can also set stones into it. It is fired and this firing process turns
it into pure silver which may be hall-marked if you wish.
Art Clay is easy to work with: you can shape it in minutes, dry it quickly with a hair drier, fire it on your kitchen gas hob,
The material l use is Art Clay (or Art Clay Silver) and it also comes in alternative forms - as a paste, in a paper form, and in a
syringe form, in which the soft silverclay is pushed through a line nozzle. So you can have endless fun and produce exquisite jewellery at the end.
You can add silver clasps to clothes, overlays to gift cards, motifs to handbags, highlights to wood, ceramics, glass, and shells, and produce complex shapes and patterns from moulds. You can make any form of jewellery you wish - pendants, earrings, brooches, rings, tie-pins, cufflinks, bracelet charms - the list is endless. Of course you don’t have to be limited to jewellery - you can also make small ornaments and trinkets if you prefer. The only limit is your own imagination! You start with soft clay and end up with a real solid 999 silver item ready to wear, give or sell.
Art Clay Silver also comes in alternative forms - as a paste, in a paper form and in a syringe form, in which the soft silverclay is pushed through a fine nozzle. You can have endless fun and produce exquisite jewellery at the end.
