About

'We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly'

Can you remember the first time you went into a sweet shop as a child? Do you remember the amazement, the awe, the excitement and giddiness? The over whelming temptation to put your hand in every box of sweets there was and try every single one of them......

Well that was me, as a child, except it wasn't a sweet shop it was a craft shop. Our family friends owned a haberdashery and I remember being mesmerized by the beautiful rainbow colours of the embroidery thread that filled the walls. I just wanted to touch them all, fill my basket with every colour and make something beautiful with them.

I tried to learn how to cross stitch and make tapestries but I'm one of those people who likes instant results and those projects took far too long to make me feel happy and as though I'd achieved something. But Friendship Bracelets - not only can I start and complete a project in a couple of days but I can wear them, show off the colours, change them up, match my outfits!

I'm also a complete perfectionist which is a blessing and a curse. It's brilliant for my work because I focus so hard on each bracelet, tying each knot in the right sequence and keeping the pressure even so the bracelet flows beautifully. You know you are getting great quality products from someone who is meticulous about every detail. However it can be a curse because, when you are personally striving for perfection in all aspects of your life, you are your own worst critic and the pressure can wear you down.

There is a balance to perfectionism and I've spent years trying to accept that perfection isn't actually desirable. It's our quirkiness, our individuality and our little 'imperfections' that make us special. The same goes for products that are made by hand. We don't want mass produced, machine made products that are just an accessory. We want something different, special, one of kind and something that expresses the fact we are all individuals, something that cheers us up when we look at it and something that celebrates our uniqueness.

    My day job is working with young people who are diagnosed with cancer. I try and use my creative skills to help them feel as "normal" as possible whilst they are having treatment. My bracelets are just one of the creative things I am passionate about

Hi everyone, and thank you for visiting my shop. If you have any questions or suggestions please feel free to message me. I enjoy talking to my customers and will en-devour to do my best to satisfy you.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
I accept payments through Paypal. Payments must be made within 3 days of purchase.
Shipping
Items will clearly state whether they are 'made to order' or 'ready to ship'. I aim to mail out 'ready to ship' items within 2-3 days (excluding Sundays) of receiving payment. For all 'made to order' products please allow 7 days, after payment is received, for me to make them. I will mail them out as soon as they are finished (excluding Sundays).

From April 2013 The Royal Mail have increased their prices and this will be reflected in my shipping prices. If you would prefer me to send your items with a tracking number additional costs will apply so please ask me to arrange this for you BEFORE you make your purchase.

For international purchases I will send them via Airmail. Any estimated times of arrival given, are based on advice from The Royal Mail and are approximate times. If you require Special or Recorded Delivery or would prefer another carrier then please contact me for prices BEFORE you make your purchase.

Please note that buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred in International Postage.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please note that custom orders cannot be refunded.

I want to you be completely happy with your purchase. You may return an item (that is not a custom order) for a full refund within 14 days of receiving it. The item must be repackaged and returned in the same condition it was received. The Buyer is responsible for the return postage - this will not be refunded. You must e-mail me in advance if you are returning an item and specify your reason for return.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please note that all my items are handmade by me. No two items will be identical but that is what makes them special. Please allow for slight variances from the photographs.

Alterations cannot be made for 'ready to ship' items. Please message me and we can arrange a custom order.

It is advised that you do not go swimming whilst wearing my items as the colours will fade due to the chlorine. Showering with the Friendship Bracelets on is perfectly acceptable and should cause very minimal damage to colours.
