Can I talk to you about a custom order?


Don't see what you want on our store but think we might be able to make it? Great! Send us a message and we'll see what we can do for us. Don't be afraid to get in touch. Some of our favourite items were first created as custom orders. For example, we recieved an email enquiring about clip-on earrings and were happy to create them to order for the customer. Now every earring we sell is available as a clip-on! So please do get in touch, you may just be helping us find our next big thing!




Do you make anything other than jewellery?


Absolutely. Eternal Craft specialises in hand-made jewellery, but from time to time we'll have one off artworks, sculptures and other creations from Emma for sale on our site. Keep up with us on Facebook and Instagram and subscribe to our newsletter to find out when these one-of-a-kind pieces appear.

Good question..........




What is Epoxy Resin?


Eternal Craft makes most of it's products using a combination of high quality metal alloy (sometimes silver plated) and epoxy resin. From Wikipedia: "Epoxy refers to any of the basic components or cured end products of epoxy resins, as well as a colloquial name for the epoxide functional group. Epoxy resins, also known as polyepoxides, are a class of reactive prepolymers and polymers which contain epoxide groups. Epoxy resins may be reacted (cross-linked) either with themselves through catalytic homopolymerisation, or with a wide range of co-reactants including polyfunctional amines, acids (and acid anhydrides), phenols, alcohols and thiols (usually called mercaptans). These co-reactants are often referred to as hardeners or curatives, and the cross-linking reaction is commonly referred to as curing." Wow. Thats... dense. To cut that mindmelter short, epoxy resin is a type of plastic. It's made by mixing two liquid parts together which causes a reaction that turns it into a hard plastic perfect for setting things in, dying, shaping etc. It also makes gorgeous jewellery!
