Understanding Gold :
How Do Alloys work ?
Everyone knows what gold is, but most people do not know much more. You hear solid gold or gold plated, what does that information mean if you aren't a jeweller? You might have seen terms like 24K, 18K or even that it is pink, white or even yellow gold ... but what does that mean?
This short article will serve as a little starting guide to understanding gold and how it is used in jewelry making. As a social Media manager/ Event planner, I, Eve, will try to explain you what I've learned in the workshop with a simple vocabulary.
Gold has been used in societies for thousands of years. This material has always had an important place in our history for a variety of reasons. But how do you use this metal to make jewelry?

Hi Witches, Ghouls, Dark Souls and Wanderers !
The Holiday season is just around the corner and we want to make sure you receive your jewels in time for the celebrations!
Please note that due to the Covid-19, we are trying our best to keep our 2-8 days turn around but it is possible that some will take a little longer to make and get ready for shipping. We are at reduced staff and we really want to take the time to create each piece with the biggest love and attention to detail.
We also recommend to order earlier this year, if you can, as most people are ordering online and carriers are also at reduced staff.
We have received so much love this years and have had the privilege to work on a ton of amazing custom projects. Just so there aren't any bad surprises, our cut off date for custom orders (jewelry that aren't in our existing collections) is on November 14th 2020. Custom orders received past this date will go to January 2021.

Hi there sweet ghouls, gals and wicked hearts of the universe,
For a few weeks, we've been getting a lot of questions about our septums and nose rings, so i figured we could do a quick step by step on how to put our Nose Rings, Septums, Daith, Rooks, Helix and Lip Rings (pierced) on!
Why do we represent witches with tall pointy hats and cats?
At Inchoo Bijoux, we are interested in everything related to witches and their history and we decided to do a bit of research and write this article to be able to share that knowledge with all of you witches! Today’s question is : WHY do we represent witches with tall pointy hats and followed by cats in Occident?
After reading books and articles there seems to be lots of different theories to answer this question. The most credible ones being a combination of women (alewives) taking to much place in the home-brewing beer industry and antisemitism.
