Small Sterling Silver Cockatoo on a Branch Necklace
This tropical delight has been hand cut and etched by the talented Amanda Coleman. This punky haired guy sits on a branch surrounded by tiny leaves tiny carnelian and citrine bead flowers. I love cockatoos! I have very fond memories of Spike our family friends pet who used to say ‘Hello’ to you every time you walked in the room, that and ‘Spike’ on repeat!!

Care Instructions -
In order to keep your jewellery as pretty as the day you bought it we recommend the following:
o Skin and hair products can react with jewellery causing it to tarnish, discolour and possibly corrode. We strongly advise applying any cosmetics and scents before you put on your jewellery.
o To brighten up your silver pieces we recommend using a silver dip solution. Always ensure you clean your item after silver dipping, with warm soapy water and a soft toothbrush. For gold plated items, you can use warm soapy water and a soft toothbrush to remove any dirt however it will not bring back any shine of the original plating. Don’t use abrasive cleaners on jewellery.
o Keep jewellery carefully stored and separated - not jumbled together in a draw.
o Keep chains fastened so that they don’t get tangled up.
