Simple Silver Jewellery Repairs

With a little bit of solder, and some careful reshaping of the silver border, these crystal earrings were made good as new.

Custom Solutions

This gorgeous Kagi earring and pendant set needed a chain repair, a touch of glue, and an innovative solution for the earrings which had lost their hooks and fittings.

Stretch Bracelets

A gorgeous bracelet made good as new with some quality stretch cord.

Missing Crystals

Replacement Swarovski crystals - whether you're missing just one crystal or all of them.

Simple Silver Jewellery Repairs

A small replacement part was made to fix a broken link.

Pearl Necklaces

Repair solutions for both natural and manmade pearl necklaces.

New Clasps

Replacements for broken and difficult to manage clasps.

Miscellaneous Repairs

Is it worth repairing? It is if you love it and will wear it again.

Pearl Knotting

Knotted with silk using a double thread no tools method for tight secure knots.

Beaded Jewellery

All types of beaded jewellery made new again. (Necklaces are my favourite things to repair)

From Old to New

Turning old treasures into unique wearables. These ones retained the original metal links through the beads but had new silver hooks added.

Fancy Beaded Earring Repairs

They were squashed, broken, and dirty but were made wearable once more. They were also converted from clip-ons to studs.

Clip-Ons

They can be a challenge but they can also be repaired.

She was told it couldn't be repaired.

But sometimes it's worth trying anyway.

Repaired and Remodelled

Sometimes repairs also offer the chance to change a few things that weren't quite right the first time around. In this case the big silver flower previously dangled from a chain and was always getting in the way.

Bead Puzzles

For when you've had the beads so long you can't remember what the necklace used to look like.

Missing Beads

If you lost some beads when your jewellery broke, there's always a way to make it better.

I began repairing costume and fashion jewellery about 3 years ago, shortly after my customers learned that I personally made all of the jewellery I sold.  I guess they figured that as my own was well made, it stood to reason that any repairs would also be done well too.  As word got around the occasional repair became a steady stream and I now have 100's of successful repairs under my belt.

I offer a cost effective repair service for those pieces that you love but wouldn't usually consider taking to a traditional jeweller for repair. Many of my customers wonder if it is worth getting their jewellery repaired.  My answer is simply that if you like the item enough that you still want to wear it, then yes, it is worth getting it repaired.  

Please note: although I can sometimes perform simple solder repairs on broken sterling silver jewellery, I am not an expert bench jeweller so with the exception of replacement parts such as clasps, chains, earwires etc, I am unable to repair most precious metal and/or gemstone jewellery.  I can however recommend a reputable manufacturing jeweller if you are looking for someone to do that type of repair.

REPAIR FEES: 

My minimum repair fee is just $5 plus the cost of any materials used.   Repair fees are invoiced once repairs are completed and couriered as soon as the invoice has been paid.  If specialised parts are required, a deposit to cover the cost of materials may be required in advance of the repair being completed.

A courier fee (if required) is additional to all prices listed. 

 

Beaded Necklaces

Prices are based on an average necklace length of 50cm (20 inches).  For longer necklaces, extra charges may apply.

Materials include stringing medium, clasp, and findings.  

  • Restring a beaded necklace:  No missing beads or design changes.  $15 + materials per strand (if necklace has more than one strand)
  • Restring beaded necklace with replacement beads or design changes:  $25 + materials per strand (if necklace has more than one strand).  
  • Restring and knot pearls:  Approximately $1 per cm plus materials.  Minimum charge is $45.00.  I use a double thread knotting technique which produces tight, even knots and also allows me to vary the size of the knot to suit.  Each end of the strand is finished with French wire for extra durability.  
  • Special commissions and complete remodels:  $75 + materials
  • Return courier:  $5 non-rural address, $8.50 rural address.   

 

Other Items

On a case by case basis.  The minimum repair fee: $5 + materials

 

No Surprises Guarantee

In all cases the materials to be used and the final price will be discussed and confirmed with the customer before the repair begins.

 

Workmanship Guarantee

If any item I have repaired breaks again in the same place, or if any parts used in the repair are in any way defective, I will repair the item again at my expense - including the cost of postage.
