Hmmm, where to begin? Maybe the start is a good idea......

How did I get here? Well, thanks to some super supportive famalam and pals my adventure started after college with commission requests to doodle up illustrations and caricatures for gifting.
Over the years I experimented with my illustrative techniques on other materials. One day whilst trying to think up a personal and unique gift for a friends birthday I decided "what the hey" I'll illustrate a pair of shoes.....that's different right? Thankfully they turned out quite well. After a little development here and there I started creating custom illustrated shoes on a commissioned basis!
In 2010 I officially stared Gemsville, a place I could collectively make and create all my arty and crafty goodness. Now I call it my full time job! It's a pretty ace feeling to see that my creations have reached different people all over the world.

Welcome to the world of Gemsville.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalised orders

I welcome any custom orders. Let me know what you are thinking and I can draw up a design for you to look at.

Sizing details

I work in UK sizing. If you are from outside the UK let me know and I can make sure shoes sizes selected are correct to your country's conversion.

Care instructions

All shoes are weather protected so are find to wear outside. There is a super slim
possibility that excessive exposure to water may affect the shoes.

All custom kicks are fashion and eventual wear and tear is to be expected.

Baby boots are fixed with a non-toxic sealer but are not waterproof. A splash here and there is fine but contact with liquids should be avoided.

It is recommended that children should be supervised at all times due to shoes having small parts.

If you'd like more in-depth detail on shoe care left me know.

Shipping and Delivery

I ship worldwide. Woo hoo! Let's talk shoes...all UK orders are sent via 2nd class recorded post. All other countries are sent via Tracked & Signed or the nearest equivalent which features tracking and/or requires a signature on delivery. If you would like a cheaper alternative or maybe something even more secure please get in touch before you order and I can give you a more accurate quote.

All other items are sent by the following methods:

U.K. - standard second class post
Rest of the world: International standard airmail

What about Christmas Orders?

Custom orders for shoes need to be received by 1st December for UK customers or 12th November for the rest of the world for guaranteed delivery before Christmas. Orders can still be placed but I cannot confirm they will arrive in time. Please be vigilant and expect that delivery may take longer at this busy time of year.

What's do I need to know about Gift Vouchers?

Gift vouchers can be purchased in different denominations or for a specific value of a pair of shoes.

Vouchers last 18 months from the purchase date

No other discounts or vouchers can be used alongside gift vouchers that are being claimed.

To claim a voucher all you need to do is e-mail me or convo through my Etsy store to discuss your design, remember to quote your voucher code!

If the gift card is only part value of your order a custom listing will be created for you to pay the remainder.

Shoes are subject to availability and in the super rare situation your chosen shoes are out of stock alternatives can be offered or your voucher expiry extended until stock is available.

If you have anymore question please give me a shout.
