Welcome to Artful Trinkets!

I love all art forms, and am drawn to fantasy, floral themes, jewel colours, and all things feminine. Flower charm bracelets, floral drop necklaces, pearls and sparkling crystals, and exquisite colour combinations are among my jewelry passions. My shop is filled with a mix of One-Of-A-Kind and (very) limited edition pieces.

My supplies come from far and wide and the bulk of it only from companies which I have researched and found to be honest and reputable. I use the best materials I can afford, such as real Sterling and Fine Silver, A/B-grade freshwater pearls and gemstones, Swarovski Austrian crystal, American-made brass filigrees, etc.

Thought you might like to know how this jewelry comes to be, so you can make an informed choice in purchasing…

Thought you might like to know how this jewelry comes to be, so you can make an informed choice in purchasing HANDMADE......

This shop is a one-woman operation. All the items in my shop are my own original designs HAND-MADE by me and me alone. I also take all the photos, compose all the text, design the banner, and run every aspect of the business completely solo from my own little workroom, here in a leafy little town in the Blue Mountains of Australia. I often stay up till the early hours working on several pieces of jewelry at once, fine-tuning designs, shopping for materials, answering emails, or carefully packaging an adored piece to be sent to a good home :)

I am meticulous and work lovingly and ambitiously on both my designing and making. I have been making jewelry since 2005, using carefully selected materials, ideas and inspiration, and a variety of skills I've picked up along the way. I have made pieces in chainmaille, bead-weaving, resin art, intricate wire wrapping, hammered wire, patterned multi stringing, you name it! I even have a bracelet which has beads I made out of clay and painted (currently in the shop). While I love doing raw-materials-artisan work, much of my jewelry at the moment is stylishly designed with beautiful components to give you lots of variety while keeping the ranges affordable. But more raw-material-artisan will also be coming to this shop soon!

I am convinced The Arts and Crafts movement, once again becoming popular, will always recycle. It's a romance, and we need it now more than ever in this cold and hurried world of the 21st century. It has been a life-long love for me, and what finally drew me to Etsy to open this shop. And I hope to move to more handmade-from-raw-materials kind of work in the future.

I hope you enjoy browsing in my little boutique, and perhaps choose to adorn yourself or another, with one of my lovingly-made creations. Or if you prefer, dream up something that my hands can bring to life for you.

I now have a second shop on etsy under the name Daily Trinkets. For simpler, minimal and inexpensive jewelry, check it out!

You may see some items there that have been moved from this shop, as they are a better fit in the second shop, but there are also many many brand new designs coming there very soon!
