About

joanne-tinley-about.jpg

My jewellery is crafted to last lifetimes, designed with care to be cherished and passed down the generations, yet intended to be worn every day. A gift of love, a precious reminder of the birth of a child, an 18th birthday treasure, or a simply a treat for yourself to celebrate how unique you are.

For me, jewellery is the most important part of an outfit, and usually the starting point when planning what to wear to a wedding, party or even a day out with the family.

All of my designs are made by me in my studio in The Sorting Office in Eastleigh, Hampshire using sterling and fine silver, 24k gold, semi-precious stones and handcrafted lampwork glass beads. Many of the stones and lampwork beads that I use in my Unique Collection are themselves unique and a joy to work with. However, my favourite technique is Keum Boo, a Korean technique that permanently bonds 24k gold to fine silver. It is this technique that I use in my popular Golden Collection.

Many of my made-to-order designs are available for wholesale. If you are interested in becoming a Joanne Tinley Jewellery stockist and wish to set up a wholesale account please visit my wholesale website www.joannetinleywholesale.com and register for a wholesale account.

About Hallmarking

Hallmarking is a legal requirement for all items containing 7.78g or more of silver or 1g or more of gold, although items below these weights may be hallmarked as well. My maker's mark is registered at the London Assay Office at Goldsmiths' Hall in London, the first recorded place in the world to carry out assaying (testing) and hallmarking of precious metals over 700 years ago. All of my hallmarked silver pieces carry the marks similar to those shown below
