About

From physio to pearls

After moving back to Northern Ireland from Scotland in 2007, I couldn't find work as a physiotherapist. After a family holiday in Cornwall, the south-westerly tip of England I fell in love with the idea of creating and crafting. On the long drive home I decided as I love jewellery, I was going to learn to make it.

Through a process of trial and error I taught myself the basics and started selling at local craft fairs and in shops. I found Etsy in January 2008 and had a steep learning curve of how to sell online. I couldn't even load photos from the camera onto the computer initially!

I learned quickly that for some reason it is my bracelets that sell best - ironic as I never wear bracelets myself. I have slowly extended my ranges but find that memory wire bracelets, pearl cluster bracelets and my new Bling range of pearls and rhinestones sell best.

I have found that I most like to work with pearls and over time realised that brides-to-be are desperate for custom made pieces to match their vision of the perfect wedding. I am contacted regularly by brides who simply cannot find the right colours in the shops and need the option of designing their own colour schemes - I have been amazed by some of the gorgeous colours I would simply have never thought to put together.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalised orders

I am always happy to accept custom orders. Please be aware that I may need to order pearls/beads for large quantity orders and factor the time needed into your request. I am happy to reserve items but the reserve will be lifted after 3 days if the item is not purchased.

Sizing details

I am happy to adjust the size of bracelets and necklaces at no extra cost. Please let me know the desired size when placing your order otherwise standard size items will be sent.

Care instructions

All components used in my jewellery are stated in the item descriptions. Rhinestones and charms are silver plate so will be prone to tarnish over time. I recommend the jewellery is stored in an airtight bag or box with the anti-tarnish tabs I provide

Gift wrapping and packaging

All my earrings and bracelets come in organza gift bags ready for gifting. Necklaces will come in boxes or organza gift bags depending on style of necklace. I am happy to include personalised messages with your order. Please leave a note of desired message in the note to seller prior to placing your order.
