Welcome to Graceful Deviant jewellery! Limited edition and one of a kind, designed and handmade by Ellen Adair from silver & stone. Influenced by natural history and a never ending wanderlust.

I make little charms using my own illustrations. I pair them with gemstones and complimenting silver charms to create cluster necklaces , bracelets and earrings. I have always been fascinated by rocks and gemstones so I incorporate as many unusual finds as possible into larger, one off designs. Working closely with my suppliers, I am often able to source 'old stock' material which makes the stones ethical and even more unique.

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

All jewellery comes packaged in a branded white gift box ready for gift giving. These boxes are also anti-tarnish tested so great for keeping your jewellery in.
Most items will ship within 1-3 days unless specifically stated. They will arrive within a couple of days to U.K address, 5-10 for E.U address and 2 weeks for the U.S and elsewhere.

About GracefulDeviant

Sales 515
On Etsy since 2011

Never let an adventure pass you by....

Having committed to a career in pharmaceutical science, you might be mistaken for thinking that the white coat reflects only a logical and analytical mind. But there is a creative, passionate and imaginative part in there too that also loves to experiment and invent! And that's how my story started!

With a love of jewellery, gemstones and working with metals since a teenager, Graceful Deviant was born in 2011. I already knew I wanted my brand name to be an oxymoron - to reflect the contrasting finishes of bright or black silver but also the illustrations that I was using in charms.

My inspiration has, and always will be, from the natural world. I've always had a keen interest in archaeology, botany, astronomy, anatomy and mythology. Combining this with gemology and metallurgy has been a self taught journey and one which I am continuing to relish each and every day.

Now that jewellery designing and making is my full time profession, I still find elements of my old chemistry life involved when working with silver from making etching solutions to heating acids that help remove firescale - there never really is a true escape!

When I do manage to escape I love to travel and explore new sights and cultures. I have backpacked Eastern and Southern Africa, China, Central America and Australia to name a few. The backpack will always be emptied for the return trip though to accommodate any new gems that have been uncovered!

I am constantly learning new techniques to incorporate into my designs and I hope you will enjoy discovering them here in my Etsy shop - the first place Graceful Deviant had an online presence. I hope you will keep in touch and follow me on my handmade adventure!

Frequently asked questions
Do you offer expedited shipping?

Yes! If you're shipping to a U.K address you simply choose the 'Special Delivery' option which guarantees your order will arrive the very next day after posting. For Europe and everywhere else, parcels are currently shipping via a tracked and insured method as standard but this doesn't guarantee a faster arrival time especially due to the current pandemic issues. If you're after something quickly please do contact me for a UPS quote as they are very fast and reliable.

Care instructions

Please make sure to remove all your jewellery before showering, swimming or bathing.
My illustration charms are not fully waterproof and silver would prefer not to come into contact with any chemicals so be sure to apply lotions and perfumes before putting jewellery on.
If your silver starts to tarnish you can always use a silver polishing cloth to gently buff back to a shine and, I sell these too!
Should anything happen to your jewellery and you need a repair, please don't hesitate to contact me, I can usually help!

When will my order arrive?

I usually dispatch in stock items within 24 hours. That means in the U.K your order should arrive within 1-2 working days for standard delivery. Within Europe 3-5 working days and for the rest of the World 7-10 working days.
Some countries require the parcel to clear customs and this is where it can get tricky to anticipate delivery times.
If you'd like a tracking number to see where your parcel is in the journey please select the shipping upgrade for U.K orders. For international orders you'll be sent one automatically as standard.
Out of the U.K and want your parcel super fast?! Contact me for a UPS expedited shipping option to guarantee delivery within 2 working days.
