On Etsy since 2012

Creating quirky mixed media jewellery for people who like to make a statement!

I love to make jewellery, it's my passion! so I thought I would start an online shop so that I could share my beady makes with everyone! I am nearly always happy and laughing, so my jewellery reflects this - wacky or quirky would sum up my style of jewellery - hopefully you will like my work too!

My work can be seen within the interactive Egyptian exhibit in the Royal Cornwall Museum, Truro and you may even see me or my projects printed in various UK Bead & Jewellery Making Magazines!

My new phase is teaching - I teach jewellery making workshops at Falmouth Adult Education Centre and have recently taught a jewellery making workshop at Cornwall Records Office using images from their archives! To find out more please contact me! I am happy to travel around Cornwall to teach jewellery making at your local club or group, please contact me for more information!

Please allow extra time during the pandemic situation as postal services are reducing deliveries etc in certain countries for safety. If you’re unsure, please message me first and I will check the Royal Mail coronavirus update on international post for you.

Delivery Times: For items to Europe, please allow at least 10 working days for your item to arrive.
For USA and Overseas: Please allow at least 14 working days for your item to arrive, or up to 25 working days during Covid-19 pandemic. During busy postal periods - such as Christmas (November and December) your order may be delayed due to the large volume of mail around this time.

Standard postage items do have insurance up to value of £20, but if your item is of higher value, please consider adding additional insurance/recorded postage, which I am happy to do at cost.

If possible, I try to be Eco-friendly and recycle envelopes and packaging, but I will package your item as safe as I can!
Additional policies and FAQs
All of my work is made with love, care and attention to detail and perfection. I try to make my jewellery as strong as possible to live up to daily wear and tear. If you treat them with respect they should last years! Handle it carefully, avoid tugging it sharply and in the case of beaded rings as a precaution don't have them submerged in water constantly. Be kind when opening/closing clasps, store them flat and out of direct sunlight if possible, also avoid contact with perfumes and other cosmetics (they may damage the surface of some beads. And remember that most of my beaded work is made with small glass beads, so if they're dropped on a hard surface they may not survive intact!

I am happy to offer wholesale orders in small quantities for Indie shops, please contact me.

Care instructions

For the fabric button pendants, I have added a microcrystalline wax finish to the chain and metal of the pendant to protect the metal from oxidising etc. Just buff with a clean dry cloth.

Care instructions

As my fabric button collection is made from textile, please do try to avoid complete submersion in water.
