We are Andy and Anne - and we are Woodland Gems UK
We are a couple of self employed artists working to create a range of hand made copper, bronze, silver and gemstone jewellery. We take inspiration from nature and mythology.
After many years as colleagues we got together over a shared love of crafts and gemstones and decided to design and make our own jewellery.
We spent over a year learning some of the skills needed to do this and sourcing both the equipment and the raw materials. We still have plenty to learn!
We have created and developed our own "Umha" copper and a range of bright bronze clays from scratch .. using fine metal powders and organic binding agents - and we use these in our Bronze and Copper products. For our white and pale bronze products we source and incorporate other clays. We create, kiln fire and hand finish our own unique pieces at our homes here in Leicestershire and Rutland
We also use a range of fine genuine precious and semi-precious gemstones, minerals and semi-precious beads from around the world to create our own pendants and bracelets.
Terms and conditions
How are your Bronze and Copper pieces made?
We make our own metal clays. Starting with fine pure metal powders and organic binding agents we created our own recipe Bronze and "Umha Copper" metal clays. If you want to see how the clay is made we have a video above. We may offer quantities of bronze and copper based clays for sale in the future..If this is something you might be interested in then do let us know.
What about your gemstone pieces?
Do you make custom pieces?
All our genuine gemstones are sourced from around the world and all our pieces are described as accurately as we can. Gemstones are set in both sterling silver and our own copper/bronze settings. We use a range of semi-precious gemstone beads in our bracelets with high quality beading or metal wire and a range of copper, silver and pewter findings and clasps. We use fine mineral cabochons in our stone pendants along with copper, bronze, silver and stainless steel. Some pieces may be similar but no two will be identical..all are made and assembled by hand. We guarantee you will receive the item as described and displayed in the listing.
We are happy to consider any commissions or custom work and can discuss with you in detail to see what could be done. Contact us with details of what you are looking for - make sure we can get back in touch with you!
