Product Description:

The jewellery is made of the highest quality of Sterling Silver and baubles of Italian Murano. Many similar products may be designed in their respective home countries, but mass produced in the Far East. Melina Jewellery has deliberately chosen that both design and production must be created by hand in our workshop in Athens Greece, despite the fact that it increases costs significantly. Neither the silver or glass beads comes from an assembly line. The production phases: 1) Idea and drawings. 2)The next phase is the Wax.The model is now being built and rebuilt many times. This process can take Wax.The original wax model is then used to produce a hard outer mould which can be used for casting many wax models, it is necessary because each wax model can only be used once.3) The wax model is then covered with a hard shell that can be used to cast the hot, liquid silver in. Each form can only be used once, as it eventually gets crushed to get silver out. 4) Every single silver bead is individually moulded and cast. When the bead comes out of its mould, each piece is cleaned and sanded. There are several designs that are moulded into 2 - 4 pieces and the pieces must therefore be assembled to the final silver bead. 5) All work is being done by hand. Every single piece of our silver is stamped with a Melina brand, to guarantee that it is a genuine piece of Melina jewellery. 6) The final stage the silver beads go through before they are ready for distributing, is polishing. This process is also done by hand and this process requires time and great skills as otherwise you will scratch the silver. 7) When polishing is successfully completed, the silver bead is ready to be shipped
