If you have a question that is not listed below, you can get in touch via my contact form.

An item I saw is no longer listed. Where's it gone?

Because I use genuine vintage and antique materials in my jewellery, a large proportion of my items are limited runs. However, if there is something you wanted and can’t see anymore, always get in touch and I’ll do my best to get it back, or something similar.

What is your returns policy?

Jewellery from Silk Purse, Sow’s Ear can be returned unworn in its original packaging within seven days of delivery. You do need to get in touch with me beforehand to let me know you’re returning, and I would recommend that your use Recorded Delivery as I won’t be able to refund if your item is lost or damaged en route.

I can’t accept returns on earrings for hygiene reasons.

My item has not arrived, what should I do?

It’s helpful if customers allow fifteen working days for UK mail to arrive, and for overseas customers to allow twenty five working days. These times are set out by Royal Mail and they will not consider a package lost until this period has passed. After that, if your parcel still hasn’t turned up please get in touch with me.

I post orders out every day.
