    Don't take fright, say you are a business (jewellery designer/ maker) and give your name as the business name. Your Cookson a/c number can be used as proof if required.
    A coil of this will do for most Brooches and last a long time. https://www.kcsmith.co.uk/product/07...-r600h00750pc7 Dennis.

    🙈 ....Its been a while since I sent anything other than silver or gold jewellery for hallmarking so got a shock when brooches that were sent with stainless steel wire pins had to hallmarked silver PLUS next to it +METAL .
    METAL was also put on the actual pin, which increases the hallmarking cost!

    odd, they didn't do that when I sent in brooches with stainless steel pins. Perhaps it depends on the mood they are in! Irritating though when you get charged EXTRA.

    I bought lengths from them, so already straight. Probably last me out though!

    Theresa was that this year that you had things hallmarked , I’m wondering if it’s changed since the new prices came in?
