About Greta

The name Greta was inspired by the river running through the Lake District town of Keswick where you can find our gallery.
Viewpoints Gallery showcases the work of my husband/photographer Pete Tasker. He lets me have a bit of space to show my jewellery!

I use beautiful natural and dyed freshwater pearls of various shapes, colours and sizes, sometimes including other beads such as glass mother of pearl and gemstones.

Each piece is individually made and rarely duplicated exactly, due in part to the unique quality of natural pearls.

Clasps and fittings are either 14k gold filled, rose gold filled, gold vermeil or sterling silver.

14k Gold Filled – is usually hallmarked 14k 1/20, meaning 14 karat gold makes up at least 1/20th of the total weight. It is made by bonding gold to a base metal (often brass) and is much more durable than gold plated.

Rose Gold Filled - has a bonded layer of 14k gold alloyed with copper.

Sterling Silver - is usually hallmarked ‘925’ meaning it is 92.5% silver.

Gold Vermeil - is sterling silver with a 18k/24k gold plating of at least 1 micron often hallmarked '925'.

Freshwater Pearls - also known as cultivated pearls may be natural or dyed and come in many colours shapes and sizes. I mostly use pearl nuggets and rice pearls and I try to source A grade beads with a good lustre.

I recommend storing Greta Jewellery in a soft bag inside a box or case, away from the atmosphere. It is advisable to avoid contact with soaps, perfumes and make up.
To clean Greta Jewellery wipe with a soft dry cloth and occasionally restore sterling silver by rubbing with a silver cloth.

All my Jewellery is presented in a smart eco friendly card box with foam interior and posted free to any UK or European address
