Recycle & Repair
We've all discarded treasures, forgotten heirlooms, pieces that hide in the dark and are no longer worn, because as much as we'd like to we can't wear them.
That's where we come in.
We can recycle, rework, redesign, essentially breathe new life into something so that it no longer has to stay in a box on the shelf. Here is one example, where we turned a plain sterling silver bangle into a multiple piece bangle with a heart charm:
Here at Pearly Hawker we also enjoy doing repairs on old pieces that have their own story but are unwearable. Rather than leave them to wrack and ruin, we work with the client to restore the treasured item to its former glory allowing it a new lease of life.
Here is a ring that the owners father used to wear, the band was snapped from heavy wear but the owner wanted to keep it to remember his father. We reshaped the shank so that it would fit his ring size and fixed the band.
This was a fairly simple repair, the owner had lost the right earring of her pair of white gold earrings bought for her by her mother. We made a mould, cast the earring and polished it up to match the original.
These are just a few examples, but the point of Pearly Hawker is to keep those precious stories alive. So whether you want a bespoke design, to recycle a piece or to repair something we will always work with you and help you to continue those stories.
Mercedes our resident Pearly Hawker works directly with our bespoke and recycling clients every step of the way to ensure their new story will be as important to them in the future as it is today.
