About

ABOUT ME:
After 7 hiatus years as a retail manager, I decided that it was finally time to go solo and start my own business: Sisily Love.

Based in Brighton, UK, I am a one-woman outfit, and I carry a wide range of Handmade treasures.
Each item is designed and made by myself produced in small limited edition quantities.

MY WORK

MY PHILOSOPHY
I try to use a lot of unwanted and vintage materials which are sourced on many treasure hunts to thrift stores and flea markets across the South Coast on England, along with potentially 'waste' supplies that are cheap and in an alarming abundance.
I try to create things that have a decadent twist - a story or juxtaposition.
I want my work to be affordable and accessible to anyone and everyone.
I love what I do and I do what I love - I hope that this shows in my creations!

PROJECT UPCYCLE ME
The concept behind project 'Upcycle Me' is to take everyday items: books, records, toys...and refashion them as you have never imagined, changing their significance or purpose; giving 'junk' a greater value by decadently upcycling it with a twist of kitsch sparkle in to a precious must have.
I love using these materials, I always feel that there is something quite naughty about sawing through a record or cutting up a book!

SHOP POLICY
Due to the bespoke nature of my work, exchanges are not always possible. If you are unhappy with your purchase please convo me and we can come to a mutual agreement.

I aim to send out items within 3 days of cleared payment. I always keep a proof of postage, so lost items can be claimed for from the postal service.

I always send items out gift wrapped, so if you if the item is for a gift and you would like a special card included, please let me know.
