caring for your pieces

   

I'm so glad you've chosen to purchase a piece from the Meekz collection. 

 

All my pieces are made using recycled, reused or found materials that were destined for the rubbish tip.

 

I aim to source all of my materials locally and make trips out to my suppliers within Brisbane, Ipswich and Toowoomba regularly to collect what materials I can find.

 

My materials include Aluminium from fencing and roofing companies, Road Signs from my local Council and kerbside, a variety of metal from Reverse Garbage and Stainless Steel, Copper and Brass from scrap metal factories.  My Gold and Sterling Silver is sourced from various opp shops and in large quantities from metal suppliers who purchase products that are not only recycled and manufactured with the environment in mind, but are also manufactured in Australia.

 

All of my jewellery and accessories are made to the highest standard and tested rigorously for quality.  They are very durable but care should be taken due to their handmade nature.  

 

All of the Meekz Contemporary Jewellery Collections come with a 6-month Guarantee, to cover against faults in the manufacture of the product. This does not cover the general everyday wear and tear of my pieces.  Some of my pieces are designed to show off the scratch marks and dints in the materials - this is a feature of the product and in no way a fault.
