A mother and daughter team of dreamers, we love antiques, the romance of the past and jewelry. Our creations allow us to pursue our passions and we take pride in each and every item we sell. Each piece of jewelry in the First City Silver collection is made entirely by hand from .999% fine silver clay. They are embossed by hand using antique wax seals, watch fobs and heraldic rings. Once dry, they are sanded and smoothed and then fired in a kiln. After firing, each piece is tumbled for strength. An eco-friendly patina is then applied, and finally, each item is handpolished with an archival jewelry wax to bring out the rich luster of the silver. Embeddable bails, jump rings, findings and chains are Sterling Silver (.925) unless otherwise noted.
