A Magpie Who Makes

Sitting down to write this has made me realise how lucky I was as a child to be surrounded by creative people. Not that some of them would have considered themselves as such, but creative there were none-the-less. And something they all had in common, from the home baker that was my grand-mother who would produce soul-nurturing food for her family and elaborate and delicious cakes for weddings and christenings and birthdays, the grand-father gardener who would also build from salvage, the painter and the all round creative crafty aunts, was their use of the materials and ingredients available around them.

It's an important feature of my jewellery work to use things that are available to me already - to thrift - to re-see and re-use objects that have been passed on by their original owners.

Being enamoured of a great many influences - the exotic, the romantic, the eclectic and the other-worldly - my art as a jeweller is always developing and using techniques that I learn from others and that I teach myself as I play I am constantly looking for ways in which I can assist others to adorn themselves in a manner that befits their natures.

As a child I would experiment with making; clothes, jewellery, decorative items of all kinds, and my fascination with making beautiful things has not abated to this day. My first sales can from markets and craft fairs, and even when I travelled in Australia for a year I would still make and sell my items at local markets. This shop is my current store-front and I'm as interested as you are to see where my creative travels take me.

If you have paid a delivery charge this will also be refunded but if you are only returning part of the order, then we are not obliged to repay any of the delivery charge. You must take reasonable care of the goods whilst in your possession and they must be returned to me or in the case of furniture, collection arrangements made, promptly at your cost.

I currently only accept PayPal from anyone outside of the UK.

If you're in the UK you can use Paypal or pay by cheque, but your item/s won't be sent out until the cheque clears.

You will have 4 days to pay for your purchase, and if payment doesn't arrive (or if you're sending a cheque and haven't let me know when it's gone in the post) the item will be relisted.
For buyers in the UK I will use Royal Mail second class post. If you are in the UK and you require the item by a particular day and time then please convo me so that it can be arranged, and please be aware that you will need to pay the extra postage costs.

I ship on Tuesday and Fridays.

For anyone outside of the UK, I will use Airmail shipping with which they aim to have your item with you in 5 days but which can take up to six weeks.

I cannot be held responsible for delays that are not down to me, and I will always obtain a proof of postage. For International buyers, sometimes customs charges or taxes may be charged to you when you receive your order.

You will have to pay these charges and I have no way of telling whether this will happen or not so sorry if it does!

Please be aware that your packing is likely to be recycled in order to keep costs down. Some items are very delicate (common sense must prevail) and I will do what I can to ensure that items are packaged protectively.
