The journey is everything! These are the days! Don’t look forward into the distant future without first enjoying what you…

I’ve realised recently that creativity is like life, it constantly evolves, morphs into something new. 

We are so busy thinking about where we are headed, where we’ll end up, we don’t realise, we must enjoy the journey. The journey is everything! 

These are the days! Don’t look forward into the distant future without first enjoying what you have right now in all its technicolour glory.

Country Designs by Lisa hallmarking London Assay Office

What is Hallmarking?  Well it’s not the 925 or 999 stamp you often see on a piece of silver jewellery.  It’s a full makers mark that has been stamped or laser marked by one of 4 assay offices in the UK.  I am registered with the London Assay Office.  You can tell which assay office has stamped the piece by the symbol in the mark, for London it is the lions head.

Anyone that sells precious metal (silver, gold platinum) must display the hallmark notice, either online or on their shop or stall otherwise they are breaking the law.  If trading standards catch them they can be fined and have all their stock confiscated!  A very scary idea!
