A M JEWELLERY
Tel: 01625 520028
Wilmslow, Cheshire

Something different on this website - Silver jewellery based on YOUR children's drawings. Children's drawings from nursery and primary school often lie in dark corners of the attic or in dusty drawers. But why not bring childhood memories to life by having them made into an original piece of handmade sterling silver jewellery that gives pleasure to the wearer, and provides a unique heirloom for generations to come. Heirlooms are an important part of any family history. The tungsten wedding bands from your great grandparents can become important and sentimental items to your children and grandchildren and so can your childrens' drawings. If they decide to start creating other jewellery such as pearl necklaces, diamond rings and tungsten wedding bands out of children's drawings that would certainly be interesting! http://www.larsonjewelers.com/c-5-tungsten-wedding-bands.aspx
