Hi! I've been making silver jewellery for a long time now, and knitting for even longer. I'm combining these by making amazing knitterly (and some not-so-knitterly) jewellery and accessories.
About the name
An Caitín Beag is Irish for The Little Small Cat. I'm Irish, and while I'm no longer very fluent I do love the way that words are put together. Neither of my lanky/chubby cats can be described as little small cats anymore.
All the larger items I create are hallmarked by the London Assay Office with my maker's mark. The buttons and stitchmarkers are way below the silver weight limit and hallmarking them would up the price a lot - but get in touch if you'd really like the stamp on yours.
Jewellery comes carefully packaged in one of our lovely boxes, tied with a ribbon. Stitchmarkers and buttons come in little notion tins - but just let me know if you'd rather a jewellery box for those. Everything comes packaged with a little anti-tarnish tab - keeping your silver stored with this will keep it shiny and bright for longer.
Postage is FREE! within the UK, and just £2.95 worldwide. I try to get everything sent out within two or three days - and I'll get in touch to let you know if there's been a delay with your order. If you have a very tight deadline get in touch - I can usually speed up dispatch and can often get it out to you the same day if I know it's urgent.
Commissions and custom work
I love commissions! I love discovering what you want, and working out how to best make that happen in silver (or gold!). If you're interested in getting a piece custom made for you please get in touch. You can email email@example.com.
