All my jewellery pieces are made from scratch and I do take pride in making unique designs that you will not find anywhere else! Apart from any metal settings, I make each element myself, from resin pendants to intricate bird cut-outs and handmade cabochons. My designs are striking, quirky and very personal so please have a look and feel free to contact me if you have any questions or requests! Yasmin
