About

The Armoured Pixie

Welcome ladies and gentlemen, pixies and people to the Pixie Armoury a place where you can browse tiny treasures and talismans.
The Pixie Armoury was born out of a passion for embroidery and struggles with anxiety. I suffer from agoraphobia which makes it difficult for me to leave the house. When I do venture out into the world on adventures I feel a metric ton better when I’m wearing my armour. To me armour is clothes or accessories that make me feel protected as well as tell a little of my story without me having to open my gob.
I have a Bachelor of Visual Arts majoring in Textiles from the Dunedin School of Art. Most of the work I have exhibited has been around social justice issues and from time to time a little bit of this seeps into the necklaces I make for the Pixie Armoury.
When making the necklaces I listen to music (mostly folk and indie music with a touch of political hip hop/rap), audio books and watch documentaries. I think this gives the necklaces a hopeful and empowering energy to pass on to you.
I try and make all aspects of the Pixie Armoury as sustainable as possible from recycled paper envelopes, energy efficient bulbs in my light box to upcycled fabrics and eco-friendly washing powder.
Making necklaces for the Pixie Armoury is my full time occupation and my dream job. My hope is to grow the business and one day be able to add a wider array of wares to the Armoury. I hope you can find something in my store that you like so I can keep doing what I love and we can both shine a little brighter.

Shipping
Due to new restrictions in New Zealand I am only able to courier items internationally which is why my international shipping fee is so high (sorry!) The upside is you only have to wait 5-6 days before it will turn up at your door and you can don it round your neck and enjoy.
