Ideally you need to avoid the things that contain nickel for good.If you or your child has a nickel allergy you might like to read this great blog, Nickel free which is packed full of useful information and links.

Thus an officer seeking to send a message calls control. If another officer seeks to speak at the same time, the effect will be that neither officer can be properly understood by ask questions or place an order please email me at: [email protected] There are some lovely antique enamelled hairpins illustrated here. The butterfly decoration is slightly over 1 1/4 inches tall. This necklace looks like an antique piece but is simply a vintage one manufactured in a largely traditional way. The lid screws off (in the opposite direction that is natural in the Americas and in Europe) and a small scoop is attached to the lid. Hairpin #2 is a delicate small butterfly with wings carved from green jade. It is well worth reading the full Popplewell Inquiry Interim Report into the Bradford City Fire.It gives a great insight into the financial struggles of the Club at the time, the challenges that people faced on the day at Valley Parade and the suggested improvements as a result of the disaster (such as trained stewards – surprisingly some stewards at Bradford City on the day of the fire were as young as 12 and as old as 75).Whereas the interim report deals more with the Bradford City Fire than the full report, the full report does make for interesting reading.

I have a number of new items including about a dozen bracelets which have just been added below with various pendants and necklaces - - and click on the images to see a full size picture of each item... #2 is a pair of hairpins, very similar to each other though one has a single pin and the other has a pair. The pins also have tiny spoon shapes at the ends - I wonder if they were a cleaning tool as well? Somehow this has a contemporary quality to it as well. Any time I try one on, fastening it at my waist, I wish that such romantic items were a part of our culture as well. Nice old ones like these (and many other items) are becoming scarce now so I was happy to find these.

Since being diagnosed myself many years ago after very painful attempts to wear earrings I’ve worked out some clever ways to stay nickel free, but it’s not an easy one to completely avoid.

The Interim report is more focussed on the Bradford City Fire (and the Birmingham Riots) than the final report.
