About

Beautiful pieces of history..

Meet Mr Tortoise. I found him in a reject pile in Sri Lanka because he had a defective shell. I promptly adopted him, and gave him a steampunk shell. He was so popular that I've now made a mould of him so others can enjoy their own defective little steampunk pet.

Most of my pieces are made from found objects which are old and unwanted. My line of steampunk jewellery began with a pile of old watch and clock parts which got caught in the 2004 Tsunami, courtesy of my Dad. He owns a shop in southern Sri Lanka which was badly damaged. There is so much joy in turning such a tragedy into beautiful pieces of history.

Prior to being a Designer/Maker, I was an experimental researcher in Engineering – and I think this comes across in my jewellery – both in the mechanical bits & bobs I recycle, and in my range of media - I love a challenge when it comes to turning junk into beautiful things you will adore. I also love it when things are both beautiful & functional.

Each piece here is unique, and my lines are transient, like my name, Chanchala, which means ‘ever changing’.

Frequently asked questions

Processing time

This is the time it takes me to prepare an order before it can be shipped. This varies for individual items so please check individual listings under the 'Shipping & Policies' tab. General processing times are: 1 - 3 working days for most items; 3 - 5 working days for personalised items.

Shipping / delivery estimate

These are the statements by Royal Mail regarding their delivery aims & generally I have found these to be true:

UK: 1 - 2 working days;

Europe: 3 - 5 working days;

Worldwide (incl. USA, Canada, Australia): 5 - 7 working days;

Please note however that these are delivery aims from Royal Mail (& in no way guaranteed delivery times). International shipping can on occasion take up to 3 or 4 weeks.

Non delivery

I always obtain tracking/certificates of posting. If anything doesn't reach you for any reason, please note I must wait 30 days from the date of posting before I can refund/replace. All lost post claims are passed on to Royal Mail for investigation/tracing. Once Royal Mail has concluded its investigations, should the parcel not turn up, I will refund you / send out a replacement.
