About

Welcome...  thanks for stopping by!

I have been designing and making jewellery since 2012, and although I did have a little formal training early on, I am mainly self-taught which is something that I’m very proud of. I love learning new techniques – I don’t think I’ll ever stop doing this, as there are so many things I want to try!
 
I work with a wide variety of materials and wherever possible I love to incorporate Artisan made components, or ‘art beads’ as they are also known. I discovered these miniature works of art a couple of years ago, and now source them from all over the world – in fact this is one of my favourite pastimes! I spend many an hour browsing the Internet looking for beads and discovering new artists. I can’t imagine making jewellery without them.
 
I like to think that my jewellery is fun and colourful, with a feminine touch – something a little different from the High Street. I find myself drawn to vibrant colours and warm coloured metals such as brass and copper.

Orders are dispatched within 1-3 business days of having received cleared payment.  All jewellery is carefully packaged inside a beautiful linen pouch or recycled Kraft gift box decorated with Japanese washi tape and twine, and is well packaged in a bubble envelope to ensure it reaches you in perfect condition.
