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!

    Hello! I founded Graceful Deviant in 2011 and design all the pieces you see in the shop. I illustrate all of the art charms, silversmith, source gemstones and then combine all of these together to make dainty, unique limited edition jewellery.

Additional policies and FAQs
Sizing Information:-

Necklaces - chain lengths come in a choice of popular sizes. Just use the drop-down menu to select which one you require. Require something in between?! No problem, just message me.

Bracelets - chain lengths come in 1/2 inch (1.25cm) increments - just use the drop-down menu to select your best size. Finding the right length couldn't be simpler!

1) take a piece of string and wrap around the smallest part of your wrist.
2) grab your ruler and jot down the length.
3) now ADD 1/2 INCH (1.25cm) to this measurement - this is the size to select from the drop down menu.

If you require a different length than those shown you can always request a custom size by messaging me privately.

Custom Orders:-

If you would like to customise your own jewellery then please get in touch using the 'request custom order' button. I would love to hear from you!
The process usually involves some time to assess exactly what is required followed by a quote. I often send lots of photographs too so you can see any variations in designs and choose your favourite.

Wholesale & Gallery Stockists:-

I welcome interest from galleries who may want to stock my jewellery and shops looking to buy wholesale (minimum spend amount required). Simply send me a message and we'll take it from there!
