Taking broken and thrown away things, and making them whole and new again.

I'm a long time and enthusiastic second-hand shopper and collector, and much prefer to own things owned before. Every piece carries with it a little of each person who owned it, and I can often feel their presence still with it.

I go out gathering with my senses on high alert - things have a way of calling me! Whenever something second-hand comes into my possession, whether I decide to keep it or pass it on to another, I always imbue it with love and positive intention, so the next person who owns it will be blessed and enjoy owning it. And I never throw these carefully collected things away! What is not donated back to charity is passed on, or transformed and given new life.

I also love gifts from the earth - shells, gemstones, feathers, driftwood - and I use these in my pieces also.

Sister Jo Bangles is my way of giving the many beautifulpieces of ephemera I find all over the place back to the world, slowing down the fashion cycle and keeping them out of landfill and from becoming waste. Upcycling is the future. And every one of my pieces is blessed, and created in a home filled with love, light and creative energy.

I am also a published author, artists and creative coach, with a Stevie Nicks fixation, dreadlocks, and not nearly enough tattoos.

Thanks for visiting my Etsy store! Namaste.

Frequently asked questions

You state your pieces are upcycled. Where do you source the components?

I source pieces for my garments, homewares and jewelry are reclaimed from several places. One source is thrift and op shops, supporting local and national charity and community support programs. I also am also given much of my materials by supporters and friendly folks I meet at markets and online, who also believe in resusing and repurposing old and vintage, keeping them from being thrown away.

What are your return and exchange conditions?

I am happy to discuss any issues you may have with your piece, so please examine yours immediately after delivery to make sure it arrived safe and sound. If you believe there to be an issue, please contact me within 3 days of receipt of goods. A damaged item needs to be returned within 14 days.

Your piece is made from recycled & second-hand components and will have various design elements which resemble flaws and imperfections as part of the design. These are considered part of the aesthetic of the piece and are not damage.

"Damage" is defined as breakage or flaws due to poor workmanship, or components coming loose or detaching. In this instance, I will happily repair your item once returned to me at my expense, by arrangement.

Refund Policy

I do not refund for incorrect sizing. All relevant size information is given in listings, and should you require more information, please ask prior to purchase. I am more than happy to give detailed measurements of my pieces to ensure a perfect fit.

I do not refund for change of mind.

I do not refund for "buyer remorse". I am happy to place an item on hold for 48 hours while you make up your mind prior to purchase. Please message me if you wish to place an item on hold.
