About

It all started with a cat.

Hi there!

My name's Taylor and I'm the owner of Tortie Designs. This is Zelda - she's my "assistant".

Tortie Designs was started in April 2017 when I noticed my tortoiseshell kitten (Zelda) playing with one of my handmade polymer clay necklaces. I had recently started using polymer clay as an expressive medium for jewelry, and I ended up developing a brand inspired by the well know attitude of Tortiseshell cats - "tortitude" - cute, bold, but still subdue - with emphasis on keeping things bright and statement, but practical enough for everyday wear at the same time - not to mention, glitter wherever possible – and completely vegan (we're PETA approved!).

We also give 10% of our profits to The Lost Dogs Home, helping cats and dogs in need.

We hope you enjoy Tortie Designs' creations.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

We do not recommend submerging any of our items in water. This also includes earrings, as some of them contain delicate materials such as gold foil - and although they are sealed, keeping them dry will preserve them for longer.

Please keep the pieces out of hot weather. In rare cases, Temperatures over 30°C may cause the seal to become tacky - if this happens, place the piece in a dark cool place. It will go back to normal in 1 - 2 days.

Dark coloured fabrics may also leave marks on light coloured beads if the garment is new or has a very intense colour. Please be mindful of this while wearing our products.

For cleaning, we recommend using a baby wipe or gentle household wipe. Do not clean our products with water.

Custom and personalised orders

Unfortunately, due to demand we currently can't facilitate custom or personalized orders.

Wholesale availability

We are currently full.

Shipping times

Please be aware that if you choose to pay with Etsy Shopping's Paypal option, or just the usual Paypal option, delays in processing can occur.

Everything at Tortie Designs is made to order - which means that we do not start producing our items until payment has cleared, which with many payment methods can take as long as 3 days (or 7 if you choose an e-cheque option).

Please take this into consideration if you need your items in a hurry. We offer an express shipping option if your order is time-boxed - please message us first before placing an express order so we can tell you if it is possible.

Orders will usually be shipped out within 1 - 2 weeks of payment approval.

We are! Not only are out products 100% vegan friendly and PETA Approved, but we also donate 10% of our profits to The Lost Dogs Home, helping cats and dogs in need. To read more about The Lost Dogs Home or to donate, go here: https://dogshome.com/
