On Etsy since 2020

My love for fantasy art and antique inspired jewellery...

Welcome to my world of my fantasy art & handmade jewellery.

Originally from the South West of England I now reside in the southern part of the Netherlands.

All through my life I have always been inspired to draw and express my creativity.
Staying true to my English roots and my love for nature, history & fantasy, I use this inspiration to create my drawings, portraits, jewellery & sculptures.

In 2018 I started my own jewellery business creating my handmade jewels.
From the beginning of 2021, I decided after drawing all my life that I wanted to expand my creations by adding my artwork to my collection and start my own Etsy shop to showcase my artwork and my handmade jewellery, which I mainly create and carve by hand using the ancient technique of lost wax carving, to the world.
~~×~~

My artwork & illustrations:
Using fantasy influences to create most of my illustrations I mainly work and sketch with graphite pencils. My latest endeavour has been creating digital & photo art with my children being my biggest inspiration for new fantasy creations & ideas.
All my artwork is available as art prints.
~~×~~

My handmade jewellery & sculptures:
I use various techniques whilst making my jewellery but I mainly like to create my jewels using the old craft of lost wax carving.
Hand carving a master piece of any design in jewellers wax and then having it casted into a precious metal of choice.
With my love for antique jewellery I use the influences of the Renaissance, Georgian & Victorian times to create my jewels & sculptures.

I don't like to accept returns from buyers;
Who bought a item on a whim or with buyers remorse!

Its the responsibility of the buyer to return the purchased item correctly, should the item become lost during the postage transition back to me I'm not to be held responsible.
I will offer NO refund on a sent return item from a buyer that has become lost during its return postal journey.

If a item has become lost on its return journey, it is the responsibility of the buyer to start up a "LOST CLAIM" for the correct insured amount of the purchased item with the postal services that they have used to send the parcel back with.

If the purchased item is NOT returned in its original condition, damaged or lost, the buyer may also be subject for any loss of value and this will be deducted from the refund- OR in worst case scenario, NO refund at all.

Custom and personalised orders

1) For custom requests please read each listing carefully for individual additional information.

2) Although I try to aim to have one piece always in stock, most of my casted works with the lost wax are mainly individually made to order jewels/sculptures.
From the initial casting process to the polished finish a lot of work, time and preparation goes in to creating each piece.
Please be aware when ordering that this process from start to finish can take up to 3 to 4 weeks.

3) If I have personalised an existing jewel on your request it can no longer be returned.

4) Occasionally I will take on custom requests which I will design together with the customer from scratch.
Depending on my available time table scale and subject to request.

Sizing details

1) With every listing (jewel or art) I will state the approximate sizes. (these can vary slightly).

2) When it comes to the jewellery size please watch the video and read the additional information too! As the actual jewel size is stated in the listing.
Ring size; I will state the official rings sizes that are given by the EU, US & UK but it is down to you to make sure you know your own ring size when ordering

3) The sizes of my artwork prints are stated in the listing.
All my Art print listings are for "print only" Meaning that they come unframed. I have added " Style example photos" so you can get an idea what a framed version of my artwork can look like in your own home. It is down to the buyer to purchase their own right framework.

Is my art and jewellery subject to copyright?

Yes, most of my artwork & jewellery is subject to copyright and cannot be copied in anyway or form without written permission from myself, Laura Prickett, first.

When sold out will my Artwork, Art prints & jewellery automatically be restocked?

Yes, but it might take a few weeks in between.

I only print a certain amount of my art prints at one time.
Depending on the popularity or if a piece is a limited amount addition, my art prints will be regularly available and restocked unless stated otherwise.

I aim to always to have one of my casted jewels in stock but depending on if it is a unique, one of a kind hand made piece this may vary.
Also the gemstones used to create new handmade pieces may vary on availability.

Care instructions

Opal jewellery care:          
Opals (solids, doublets or triplets) are soft porous stones, with 5.5 - 6.5 on the Mohs scale. Although beautiful, opals are a delicate stone so they need more gentle care.     

1) Opal Jewellery should not be exposed to perfumes, lotions or aerosol sprays.

2) Keep your opal jewellery and separate compartments.

3) Keep your opal jewellery away from extreme heat or sunlight.

4) Remove your opal jewellery when cleaning, showering or swimming in a pool or doing work where it can be scratched.

5) Most importantly never clean your opal jewels in mechanical cleaning systems, i.e. ultrasonic, steam, or boiling. Do not soak your opal jewel in water but the best way is to wipe it clean with a soft damp cloth.

Gift wrapping and packaging

1) Gift wrapping:
- Jewellery will come gift-wrapped in either a velvet bag or jewellery box.
- Illustrations/Prints will be wrapped in soft tissue paper and packaged in a non bend envelope.

2) Packaging:
- I offer free delivery on most items, unless stated otherwise.
- All Items will be packed accordingly and if with free delivery the package will be sent insured and with tracking ID.
- Please be aware that all buyers are responsible for providing a valid and up to date mailing address.
If I should have to re-ship due to error of given address it will no longer be free delivery. The new shipping fee will have to be paid in full before I resend any item.
3) I'm NOT responsible for delays, extra costs due to customs or return shipping fees.
