Handmade, Design Jewellery and Gift items.
Hi My name is Karen, I am the sole worker and creator behind Nouvelle. My home studio is located in Queensland Australia, where I hand make, design and package each item. I sell design jewellery and gift items that are made from resin and other materials. I make my own necklaces from faux Suede leather and chain. The clips and extra length chain on the necklaces are all Stainless Steel. The earrings rang from Stainless Steel, Gold plated or Gold Tone Stainless Steel, Copper and other metals. The Resin that I create some of my items with, are from Australian companies.
The Stainless Steel that I create my items with, are a 304 Grade and 316 Grade and supplied from Australia. I try to buy all my materials from Australia but now and then some material have to come from overseas.
Stainless steel 304 is considered a medical stainless steel. This grade is similar to grade 316. The difference between 304 and 316 stainless steel is that 316 contains molybdenum, which enhances corrosion resistance, while 304 does not.
