About

What do you mean, girls don't play video games?

It all started back in 2002 when I became "hooked" (i.e obsessed) with a certain survival horror video game. I had to own every piece of merchandise that I could get my hands on. When I had everything I could afford I became more creative (luckily had always been the creative type since a small girl) and began to make my own. From jewellery and accessories to clothing and home decor.

After a while I began to showcase my creations on a site called DeviantArt and it wasn't long before numerous members had me dabbling in art trades with them. My home made merchandise became very popular across the site and beyond and I quickly realised that I had set the foundations for a potential business.

I worked hard, made numerous mistakes along the way but the main point was that I absolutely LOVED what I was doing. It makes so much difference getting up in the morning to do something you adore. I managed to secure a place on a government scheme in January 2012 and was awarded a business mentor and a healthy grant. After 6 months I was secure enough to go it alone and I've never looked back since.

THE REST IS HISTORY...

I still like to play video games although now I rarely get the time as I'm always cooking up new ideas and designs. A few years ago I released my "Zombie Plan" Charm Bracelet which was the first of it's kind on this website and I was never really prepared for how popular it would become. Unfortunately it's been copied many times over but I'm still very proud to have made the original and it remains my best seller to this day. My aim is to continue bringing out new designs that I know my customers will love.

I've also started to broaden my horizons after becoming hooked on conventions. Realising that I needed more than just the "undead" on my side I decided to add a little bit of everything! And I do mean EVERYTHING!! This shop is now an extremely eclectic mix of everything quirky and geeky. I've also managed to include a few sections inspired by my love of all things rockabilly, pinup and kitsch.

I feel very blessed, I have an awesome work studio, a stable business which enables me to provide for my boys, an incredible family who are extremely supportive and the BEST customers in the whole world!

Frequently asked questions

Payment Via E-Check

If you are a customer who has paid with an E-Check via Paypal I will not send your order until Paypal has sent a confirmation email that the E-Check has cleared (which takes approx 7-10) so please be aware of that.

Packaging, Shipping & Insurance

I use brand new packaging for every order and every item is individually bagged and in most cases will arrive in jewellery boxes (unfortunately the big items I am unable to do that for).

I do my post runs (usually) every Monday and Thursday.

I use first class for all UK orders and regular airmail for international.
Regular airmail is insured up to £20 but if your order totals more than that, I would sincerely recommend you purchase the shipping upgrade.
If your order totals more than £80 I will provide upgraded shipping free of charge.

International buyers please note that you are responsible for any customs fees.

Missing Packages

I do believe that your package is MY responsibility until it has arrived safely in your hands and you are happy with it. However, sometimes packages do like to take the longer, scenic route or even just disappear into oblivion. This isn't any fault of my own or how I conduct my business but I always rectify the problem when this occurs. This is a personal guarantee I make as a seller (regardless of the outcome of any claim I make).

PLEASE NOTE, due to the Royal Mail's strict guidelines, international buyers will have to wait 28 working days (this doesn't include weekends) before a package is officially AWOL and I can offer you either a FULL refund or a replacement sent (with complimentary upgraded shipping).

Any Problems?

Please remember I am only human, if you have a problem PLEASE contact me.
I will bend over backwards to make my customers happy and I take complaints very seriously.
I do take a lot of pride in my work and if you have any problems at all, PLEASE PLEASE contact me first BEFORE leaving a review so I can have a chance to rectify it.

I am an extremely honest and reliable seller and I personally guarantee every package I send.

I run my business as professionally as possible, I'm not happy until you are happy.

Custom and personalised orders

I don't usually offer a custom service other than the ones listed in my shop although there's no harm in asking if you have any additional requirements.
I'm unable to offer wholesale or reduce the price of any listing.

Invoices & Receipts

Please note that I never send a copy of the order/invoice or receipts with the package as I know that many of these are sent as gifts. However, if you do require a copy of your order, please mention this in "note to seller" when you checkout.

Order Deadlines

Please DO NOT leave messages regarding delivery deadlines in "note to seller" when you checkout. I need you to contact me PRIOR to purchasing. Leaving a note when you have already placed your order will only delay the processing time while I try and contact you regarding your deadline. Any questions regarding shipping times are best answered before you place your order. I will never send an order if I have a query about your deadline and if I get no response from you within 48 hours unfortunately I have to cancel your order and refund your payment.

Faulty Items

If any item is faulty I will refund or replace for you.

If any item arrives damaged or is lost in the mail, I will file a claim with the post office on your behalf (please note if the item is damaged I may need you to either return it to me (I will pay for return postage) or send photos so I can prove my case for the claim. For lost or damaged items I also offer a no quibble refund or replacement.
