★ ★ ★ Thanks so much to Gothic Beauty Magazine for featuring Lost Apostle in their Issue 38! Haven't got the mag yet? Drop everything! Go! Read! ★ ★ ★

In our shop you'll find all things Rock and Roll, from old school Cassettes to 50's Microphones and Guitars to Pills for those that live on the wild side...

There's also the best of Mother Nature, with bronze Shells, Acorns, Feathers, Angel Wings and some Bugs thrown in for good measure...

If Skulls and Hearts are your thing then there's no shortage here either - Ravens, Eagles, Wolves and Whales, Cougars, Rams and Teddy Bears all make an appearance, with our Day of the Dead pendants trying their best to steal the show. Get yourself a Lost Apostle Anatomical Heart while you still can!

In the Things with Wings section you'll find just that - Flying Pigs, Flying Hearts and, somehow, a Flying Cupcake. It refused to give up until it got airborne.

"I'm armed to the teeth, and dressed to the nines...if I wasn't me, then I'd wish I was". If you too want to sound like a 1940's detective novel, head on over to the Guns, Bombs and Barb Wire section - just what it says on the tin. Peacemakers, Flying Artillery and a couple of Hand Grenades. Because nothing says "I Love You" like a hand grenade, right?

Bracelets for guys and gals - each comes with the Lost Apostle bronze clasp and is completely adjustable. We don't want anyone to feel left out.

And earrings - from the sublime (the feathers) to the sensational (let's hear it for those flying pigs again), we make sure that your ears don't miss the party.

All that, and a whole load more besides...if you're looking for something unique, original, handmade and a little bit off the wall then you my friend are in the right shop.

For Him, For Her! For Young and Old! Lost Apostle will not sleep until you're all happy and warm, safe in the knowledge that a Bronze from us is the Key to Successful Living!

Everything in our shop is designed by us, James and Nadya, and we're adding new items all the time. Too many blisters to count now! But each one worth it.

About

Lost Apostle, The Cure for the Common Gold...

Life's a journey, no mistaking that. The whistle-stop tour. The all-inclusive no-brainer. The plod. The First Class, high-flying, jet-setting 5 star whirlwind.

And then there's the scenic route.

Lost Apostle, take a bow.

Both independently and as a team, Nadya and James - the married couple behind Lost Apostle - have trod the path less travelled, torn up rule books and given conformity a right old pair of adversaries. Lost Apostle jewelry is a reflection of this approach to life, and those smiles are heartfelt - it's fun looking Goliath in the eye in and telling him his flies are undone.

Every piece of Lost Apostle jewelry is made entirely by hand, and our logo on all our jewelry is your guarantee that our very best has gone into everything we make. James' skill as a trained silversmith and Nadya's background in the Fine Arts lend a detail to their bronzes that challenges the bounds of what jewelry can be, and detail for Lost Apostle is everything. From the tiny feathers in an angel wing pendant to the anatomical accuracy of their hearts and skulls - making something to the best of their abilities creates jewelry that can be worn and enjoyed in the knowledge that 110% has been poured into it.

Re-invigorating a 6,000 year old method called the Lost Wax process, each piece of Lost Apostle jewelry is a little reminder that although our time may be fleeting on this mortal coil, bronze has been - and will be - around for millennia. Just as the beautiful 1,500 year old bronze bracelet that James un-earthed in Cambodia may have been worn by an ancient Khmer king, so might a Lost Apostle skull be rediscovered many generations from now, every bit as splendid as the day it was first worn. Bronze is a beautiful metal to work with - strong, enduring, resonant. Your Lost Apostle jewelry will stand the test of time and they'll be fighting over it when you're pushing up the daisies.

Nature, anatomy, the Space Between your Ears - they're all inspirations. Soak it all up, wring it all out, and see what you're left with. And it if looks good, cast it in bronze. At Lost Apostle, it's the behind-the-scenes stuff that inspires us as much as anything - the spiritual laundry on the the physical washing line. Other than that, we think skulls are badass. Let her rip, 'tater chip.

Lost Apostle. How it all began? It's a long story. It's a good one too. It involves market stalls, a bag of peanuts and Nadya-shaped targets before James even knew her name.


No plans for a bronze peanut though. Yet.

Hi one and all and welcome to Lost Apostle.

Spending the larger part of my twenties in Asia taught me many things, some practical, some less so, but none more creatively satisfying than silversmithing. Pulling up a bench to watch a silversmith make the ring I had designed, I asked him whether he could show me the ropes so I could have a go myself. The next day he'd cobbled a desk together and furnished it with the traditional tools used in his trade. A few un-hurried explanations later and I was let loose with his well-worn hand made files, 150 year old hammers and a prehistoric foot-bellows...8 hours later I'd made my first ring and 9 hours later I'd sold it. I ended up working at that bench for years. And although I got a bit quicker at making the rings, the ancient techniques I learnt and used never changed.

It turns out that casting jewelry also had a long and rich tradition too. Silver prices went up, and up, and then up some more, and it wasn't long before I was looking for a different medium with which to cast. Enter Bronze. What a find. Silver is a relatively soft metal, which gave me the opportunity to hammer the hell out of it with a couple of rolled-up sleeves and a blowtorch. Bronze is an altogether tougher prospect, no way you're manhandling that into anything resembling, well, anything really. It's the perfect choice for casting jewelry (just ask the Khmer from the Angkor Period in Cambodia - they were using the stuff for their rings and bracelets 3,500 years ago), as it expands when it cools and in doing so gets into all the tiny details of the mould. It's called the Lost Wax process, it's been around for about five thousand years, and it's how each and every piece of Lost Apostle jewelry gets made.

Each handmade piece of Lost Apostle bronze has been brought to you by an ancient tradition, and one which we are proud to uphold. I should point out that bronze, if left to its own devices, will tarnish and darken within a few days. While this is by no means a bad thing, we decided to protect the mirror-polished finish by using a special technique - your Lost Apostle jewelry will maintain it's beautiful shine for years.

Each piece comes beautifully packaged in a Lost Apostle ultra-suede pouch, and if you're purchasing a pendant on leather, then a rather snazzy and completely original Lost Apostle bronze clasp is also included with simple fitting instructions.

Thanks again for stopping by,

Best wishes,

James and Nadya

Payment
We accept payments by Credit card and Paypal. Paying by PayPal is super straight forward, and the checkout process here at Etsy will walk you through it. If you would like to pay by credit card, please follow the links to pay by PayPal, and then look for the Visa/Mastercard link on the left-hand side of the PayPal page to continue your payment with Credit Card. This will navigate you away from PayPal and allow you to complete the transaction using your credit card. Ideal if you do not have a PayPal account.
Shipping
As soon as payment is received we will ship your purchase within 24 hours, anywhere in the world. Anywhere? Anywhere. We will send your jewelry by Canada Post's very efficient First Class Airmail, but please remember that delivery times can, and no doubt will, vary. Please also note that Canada Post does not provide a tracking number with their First Class Airmail service. Once it's in the postman's hands, it's out of ours, and so please allow up to 28 business days for international delivery (that's what Canada Post says anyway). It rarely takes that long but it's good to know.

If you can't wait to get your hands on your new jewelry and would like us to send it by Expedited mail, courier service or any other speedier methods, please convo me (or send me a message through the "contact" button on my shop page) and I'll be happy to help.

International customers also please note that we cannot be responsible for any boring customs hold-ups or import taxes dumped on the shipment. I'm afraid I can't misrepresent the value of the package either. Thanks for understanding.

We always love hearing from customers once they have received their jewelry, so please get in touch and let us know it's arrived safely and what your thoughts are. I'm used to working behind a market stall and so I love the feedback!
Refunds and Exchanges
If you're not 100% happy with your purchase, return it (unworn and undamaged please - worn or damaged jewelry will void the refund) within 10 days and we'll give you a full and complete refund (sorry, this doesn't include shipping) or a replacement if you'd rather. It's just the two of us here, you'll be dealing with real humans, and we'll do everything we can to ensure your complete satisfaction.

We cannot refund custom-made orders sadly. If ordering a custom-made ring please ensure that you have your finger accurately sized by a jeweler to ensure a great fit.
Additional policies and FAQs
We welcome any wholesale inquiries, both in Canada and the U.S and also the rest of the world. We have retail outlets in London, UK, so if you're there please let us know and we'll point you in the right direction.

Many thanks once again,

James and Nadya
