    Bangle and Ring Sizing

    Bangle and Ring sizing: perhaps you have noticed that when you hover over some of our products you are invited to ‘Add to Basket’ whereas others will invite you to ‘Select Options’. The Select Options is just asking what size you would like. Some people know their wrist and finger sizes for ordering sterling silver jewellery.

    Gemma Tries It All On

    Modelling Silver Jewellery: Gemma tries it all on! Today our friend Gemma came to see us and ended up modelling silver jewellery. She had a great time trying on lots of silver pendants and bangles. We took a couple of hundred photos while she was here and we’ll add some of these to the Volant Silver website soon. Its always interesting to discover which pieces of silver jewellery people are most attracted to. As every person is unique, so is every piece of handmade jewellery. Everyone picks different pieces as their favourites. Sometimes they see something that isn’t quite for them, but it gives them an idea of what they…

  • Volant Silver jewellery photo shoot - photographing sterling silver jewellery in the Volant Silver studio

    Arranging a Volant Silver Jewellery Photo Shoot

    Our picture above shows the beginnings of a Volant Silver jewellery photo shoot. A lot of work goes into presenting jewellery correctly. Trying to give potential customers a feel for each piece in our shop whilst they are viewing remotely is a tall order. Silver in particular is tricky to photograph, particularly against a white background. We do use photo editing software frequently on backgrounds and for re-sizing pictures. However, we never use it to embellish any of our jewellery – to show off the natural beauty of each piece.   We enjoy using natural backdrops in our Volant Silver jewellery photo shoots. We look for plants, rocks or driftwood for example.  Taking pictures…

  • Volant Silver Jewellery visit Talisman silversmiths Maro
    Volant Snippets

    Talisman Silversmiths, Maro, Spain

    We found Talisman Silversmiths in the wonderfully sleepy village of Maro, Spain. You need to drive about forty five miles east of Malaga. Maro sits on the edge of a cliff, overlooking the sea and as you will see is surrounded by agricultural land. We think it’s beauty is beyond words. The village was recently featured on Spanish TV programme and has since become popular with Spanish tourists. We find it can become busy on high season weekends. Consequently, we try to visit it during the week to catch it at its best. Talisman Silversmiths Talisman Silversmiths is located in the heart of the village. We love the appropriate background music and effective air…

    Volant Garden Life

    Volant Garden Volant garden life is where we show off our jewellery in, well, the garden. This time of year everything in the Volant garden is changing. So we thought we’d use it as a backdrop for displaying our silver jewellery.  The leaves are starting to morph from bright green to golden red. The young pheasants are getting braver and standing outside the door looking for extra food. Soon it will be time to dig the reeds out of the pond in the Volant garden. This is for the return of our ducks in February.  For the time being they are providing a vibrant backdrop for pictures of our new…

  • Volant Silver get inspiration from 3 culture festival Frigliana
    Volant Snippets

    Frigiliana – full of inspiration

    Today we visited the beautiful  Spanish village of Frigiliana.  Perched on the mountainside the village is getting ready for the Festival Las Tres Culturas (The Festival Of Three Cultures) which lasts for four days and celebrates the cultures that have inhabited the region over the centuries.  Because of this thousands descend on the village to enjoy food, music and traditions.  Consequently Frigiliana, a stunning white washed village with spectacular views, becomes very busy and bustling at this time. There is great food and even better shopping.  I love the white houses with their doors painted vibrant shades of blue and their wonderfully coloured plant pots.  I wonder if Rob will…
