About

I made myself a necklace

I made myself a necklace, just one, I don't remember really how I thought of it now, I had some scrap silk print fabric that I just loved and I used it with chunky wooden beads to make what I now call scarf necklaces, beads at the front, fabric 'scarf' tie at the back. I wear it with jeans and t-shirt and get compliments almost without fail every time I wear it. Then I made one as a gift and started to think maybe I could sell them.
I should explain, I live and work in Hong Kong as a knitwear designer. I've always been making things though, for myself, for my dolls when I was little, for my home. I can't not do it. I much prefer making something than buying it, so much more enjoyable and fun. Here in HK there is an amazing array of trims and fabrics, beads and buttons available and part of my job is to source such things. So as I saw these beautiful things I started getting ideas of how I could use them and being inspired. The jewellery business really started after I had a table selling them at our church May Fair. Then I realised I could sell them at craft fairs, then I heard of Etsy and opened my shop. It's so amazing to sell to someone I haven't met, across the other side of the world, I love it!!

    I love making things, I sewed my first skirt on Mum's treadle Singer machine aged 7. Now I live and work in Hong Kong and have access to amazing materials on the local market which I just had to use for something, my jewellery grew out of that.

Summer is upon us and these ribbon necklaces are perfect for wearing with a summer dress, t-shirt or summer shirt. They are light weight, fun and pretty. Check out our Pinterest pages for styling inspiration!

All the necklaces are hand made and unique, I rarely make 2 the same. I'm happy to discuss custom orders with you or talk about colours if you need something specific. These necklaces make beautiful bridesmaid styles for example.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
I will ship the item to you within 24hrs of receipt of payment or on the next working day if it is a holiday/weekend.

If you need to cancel the transaction then you need to do so at your side, please notify me immediately as I will be expecting to ship your item within 24 hours. If I have shipped the item already and you need to cancel then I will only be able to refund you on receipt of the returned item. Return shipping will need to be payed by your side.
Shipping
I pack each piece in a gift pouch and will ship it in a padded envelope or a tough little box via registered airmail. If you have any query or shipping needs please contact me. Hong Kong has an excellent speed post service but it is expensive!

Please note that due to additional security checks by the US customs, shipping to the USA may take longer than usual. (This may apply to other countries at different times)
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are not happy with your item for any reason, please return to me, I will refund your money when I have received the returned item which must be in the same condition in which it was shipped. Return shipping will be at your own expense.

It's a terrible disappointment to have an item lost in the post. If you have not received your item within a reasonable length of time please let me know, I register all items so the postal system should be able to track it, however if it is lost then I can try to re-produce it for you, or reufnd your payment.

Please contact me if there is any problem before leaving feedback so I can work it out with you, thank you!!
Additional policies and FAQs
All the items listed are already made, I create it and then list it which is why I can ship so promptly.

Please convo me with any enquiry, I welcome custom orders and wholesale, if you need to match a colour I can send you colour swatches to select your ribbon.

Thank you for visiting my shop!
