The Maison Vee’s jewelry collection is all handmade by me and my fabulous mum, Steph (aka Mama Maison!)
Mum and I have been making jewelry together for over 20 years. In case you’re wondering where the name came from, Maison Vee’s was the hairdressing salon my Granny Vera ran in Devon in the 1940s, so we’re delighted to keep the family business going under a different guise!
When I was about 13 Mum and I regularly took a stall at the local fairs selling our handmade wares. Fast forward (ahem) 20 years and here we are again! We both design and make from our homes in the UK, with regular phone calls, emails and visits to work through ideas and coo over each other's new designs.
I make original sterling silver and beaded jewelry and Mum specialises in intricate beadwoven jewelry, using traditional techniques to create her own unique contemporary designs. Between us we make jewelry perfect for everyday wear, with an added touch of glamour!
I look after our Etsy shop, so please get in touch if you have any questions or requests - we'd love to hear from you.
Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator, Photography, Shipping
I look after Maison Vee's and live in Edinburgh in the UK. I make original sterling silver jewelry with semi-precious gemstones; vintage and glass beads, charms and ribbons that I've been collecting for many years.
Steph (aka Mama Maison) is based in Cumbria in the UK and specialises in intricate beaded jewelry using traditional bead weaving techniques to create unique contemporary designs. She sells her jewelry at craft fairs all around the north of England.

Accepted payment methods
If you would prefer to pay with a credit or debit card, choose PayPal at checkout. This is a *secure* third party credit card processor and you do not need to have a PayPal account to use the service. If you need help with this process, please contact me and I’ll be happy to help.
Please pay for your item within 24 hours of purchase. If payment has not been received within five days, then unfortunately your transaction will be cancelled. Should you have any problems with the payment process, or need to cancel your purchase for any reason, please contact me.
I reserve the right to refuse a transaction for any reason.
I ship from the UK via Royal Mail within 48 hours of payment as standard. If the item is a custom order, or a particularly detailed piece made to order, this may take longer and I will inform you of this as soon as the sale is confirmed. I will make every effort to ensure your purchase arrives quickly and safely.
My postage rates are for Royal Mail second class - if you would prefer to upgrade to first class, special or recorded delivery, please contact me.
Please permit an average of 1 week for delivery within the UK and 2-3 weeks overseas. If your purchase is for a specific event or date (a birthday or wedding for example), please contact me prior to purchase.
For shipping purposes, please make sure that your PayPal and Etsy shipping addresses match. If your purchase is a gift to be sent direct to the ‘giftee’, please tell me at checkout. I am also more than happy to add personalised notes to gifts too.

Please note that international buyers are responsible for any/all duties and customs charges that may be incurred.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you require a refund due to the item being damaged during shipping, or getting lost in the post, please contact me as soon as you can. Due to the nature of our work, refunds are considered on an individual basis and for hygiene reasons I cannot offer refunds on earrings.
For necklaces and bracelets, please check the stated measurements on each item description - I am always happy to lengthen/shorten chains free of charge, but I'm afraid I cannot refund or exchange an item because it is too long or short after it has been purchased.
All refunds and exchanges will only be provided with the return of the original item purchased and I will refund return postage costs.
Please also note that, as stated on our descriptions, all Maison Vee’s pieces are handmade and many are made using natural, vintage or one of a kind materials, so please allow for slight variances - every item really is one of a kind!
** All items of beadwoven jewellery have specific care instructions in their item descriptions: Beadwoven jewellery is handmade with care, please avoid getting your new jewellery wet, as this can affect the strength and tension of the thread used. So take your beaded ring off when you wash your hands and don't wear your beaded necklace, bracelet, or earrings in the shower!
Additional policies and FAQs
I will also lengthen or shorten necklace and bracelet chains free of charge (within reason of course!)
