A day in the life of Lucy Quartermaine

As a busy working mum of three beautiful children, life is hectic for Lucy to say the least but she loves every second of what she does. We live by the motto… ‘Choose a job you love and you will never have to work and day in your life’ and this exactly what LQ team do.

Kickstarting a typical day in the life of Lucy begins with dropping her children off at school, it is always a busy morning in the LQ household. Lucy loves that she can be a mum and a business woman all rolled into one. After this it is back to the office to begin her working day.

Like most of us Lucy of course starts off any working day with a coffee, this boosts her to get on with any admin tasks.

The rest of Lucy’s morning involves creating new design ideas for her wonderful customers. She uses her iPad to develop her stunning sketches, bringing them to life. Each and every design involves an intricate process. Each creation stems from a love of all things nature specifically liquid elements in motion. Cascading droplets of a waterfall, rippling waves and wild winds are just some of nature that Lucy captures within her collections.

Design has always been Lucy’s passion, she is always looking for inspiration in her everyday life.  At university, Lucy studied Silversmithing and Design and this is where her ideas and creations began. Some of her early collections were even inspired by her favourite university snacks (sweets and crisps collections we’re looking at you!)

Lucy Quartermaine HQ, really is where the magic happens. From one modest building, we manage our brand, design, repair,

size, polish and send out orders to a wide range of wonderful customers. Additionally, Lucy’s day involves ensuring any special orders are complete such as sizing our rings to fit perfectly and polishing jewellery for a customer’s special occasion. This is an important part of our aftercare service which we are extremely proud of.

Maintaining and developing the LQ website is another one of Lucy’s daily tasks. She keeps our website up to date, deals with our customer enquiries and ensures all is running smoothly. Our office and workshop are always full of life… with laughter, happiness and hard work. You can often find us drinking coffee and singing along to the Greatest Showman soundtrack!

Once School has ended, she collects her children and returns to the office juggling mummy duties and working. We may be biased but we think she is superwoman.

How to polish & clean contemporary silver jewellery

With elegant designs from the Qucy Jewels collection, you’ll no doubt want to make sure your contemporary jewellery always looks its best for any occasion. Whether you have a party or event coming up, or you simply want to dazzle with your day-to-day accessories, it’s important to keep your silver clean and shiny.

Like all good things, silver jewellery can become dirty and lose its shine over time. Correctly polishing and cleaning it is vital to keeping your precious pieces looking beautiful and preserving the integrity of the metal, which can fade over time if not looked after properly.

In this article, we look at how you can prevent your favourite jewellery from tarnishing, as well as the best methods for cleaning and polishing them without causing any damage.

Preventative measures
Regularly wearing your jewellery can actually help to keep it looking clean and shiny, thanks to the natural oils in your skin.

However, exposure to everyday household products like lotions, hairsprays and washing-up detergent can tarnish your silver jewellery, so it’s always a good idea to take off any rings while doing the dishes or putting on hand lotion.

If you have pieces of jewellery stored in a box or drawer for long periods of time, try keeping sachet of silica gel or even a piece of chalk in the same place. Chalk and silica gel can absorb the tiny quantities of moisture in the air, helping to protect your jewellery from any erosion that occurs over time.

Treating silver jewellery
Silver is a very soft metal and can scratch quite easily if not properly treated. While there are various cleaning solutions available, like silver dipping solution, we don’t recommend using those, especially for any of Lucy’s unique pieces.

Qucy Jewels jewellery designs are crafted using an anti-tarnish solution, in order to minimise the potential damage caused by everyday wear. Use of silver dipping solution or even ultrasonic cleaning machines can actually end up removing this anti-tarnish solution.

To effectively clean and polish silver jewellery, you can use a special silver cloth. These are commonly available and help to wipe away any dirt or smudges. A gentle rub will keep your contemporary silver jewellery looking clean and brightIf you can’t get hold of one of these, it’s possible to use a few other household items to gently clean your jewellery.

The most common of these is to use a solution of white vinegar and a small amount of baking soda. Vinegar is extremely versatile as a cleaner, and it’s easily rinsed away without leaving a trace. It’s also best to use a microfibre cloth for this, rather than paper towels or tissues as they contain tiny fibres that could leave scratches.

How the value of Silver has changed

Many experts have predicted that silver could become the new gold due to the rising prices of silver. Demand for silver has increased for many reasons, including the need to make electronics and solar panels as well as home décor items and jewellery. Some experts have predicted that silver prices could rise by 15-20% in 2017. Investors in the precious metal could get an excellent long-term return by buying now.

Why value of silver is growing

One of the reasons for rising silver prices is the growing Indian demand. India has been the biggest importer of silver for the past couple of years, overtaking the United States. Two of India’s most common banknotes were made worthless by the Government, who voided them as part of efforts to beat corruption. This meant banks faced cash shortages and small businesses across the country were negatively impacted. However, it also sent gold prices soaring, with individuals flocking to transform rupees into gold, ownership of which would be limited by the Government, leaving silver as the number one precious metal on the market without ownership limits. Inflation is also set to play a big role in keeping silver prices high, with demand for the metal set to grow as the market becomes more volatile.
