I’ve just made this cute little dainty blue sea glass necklace with some of the sea glass that I found on my favourite beach in Cornwall on last years holiday. Hopefully I’ll be able to go back later this year.

There is always something new to make

Hi there my name is Paula

I have always been passionate about recycling and reusing, and I love creating, even as a small child I used to make my own necklaces out of antique beads that my grandad gave to me.
Now I'm lucky enough to be able to do what I love doing as a full time career
I just love making jewellery and accessories using recycled coins or out of sea glass, shells, pebbles, driftwood or even sea worn bits of china that I have found washed up on the beach.
I enjoy putting old and new together to create something different.

The coins that I use for my jewellery and accessories are genuine, mostly circulated But a few uncirculated coins, they have all been sterilised and polished individually by hand to bring out the detail, the circulated coins may have small marks or signs of wear in keeping with their age.

Each piece I make evolves rather than being designed, depending on the mood I am in. Sometimes I have to leave it for a while because I am not quite sure how it's going to finish....

    Hi there I've always loved making things especially jewellery, I've also always loved beach combing and going to flea markets to see what I can find to make something new out of.

Frequently asked questions
My order hasn’t arrived yet, what should I do?

Please note that shipping can be unpredictable, especially during this COVID-19 outbreak shipping may take longer than the below estimates

The estimated (not guaranteed) standard delivery times are as follows;

United Kingdom:- 2 - 5 business days
Europe:- 1-3 weeks
USA:- 1-4 weeks
Canada :- 1-6 weeks
Rest of the world:- 1-6 weeks

Please note there are severe delays in some airports in USA when a package is stuck in a backlog of mail it may not be scanned therefore the tracking will not update until the package clears the backlog.

If you are not in the U.K. and you order does not arrive in 6 - 8 weeks please message me on ETSY, be sure to include the delivery name and address in your message for conformation

My order has been damaged in transit, what should I do?

Whilst I do everything I can to ensure your order arrives in perfect condition, I understand that accidents can sometimes happen, I will do my best to resolve any issues for you

Please message me on ETSY As soon as you receive your order including a couple of photos of the items you have received, and the packaging, I will respond within 24 hours of receiving your message.

Can I send a gift directly to the recipient

You are welcome to send a gift directly to the recipient. When ordering add the gift recipients address at checkout instead of your own.
You can also add a message, if you leave the message in the ‘note to QuirkyGirlWorkshop’ section as your order. The package will not contain a receipt.

My order seems to be taking a long time and the tracking has just stopped

Unfortunately this seems to be happening a more and more during this worldwide pandemic.

If your order seems to be taking a while this could mean that your package is stuck in a backlog of mail unfortunately items of mail do not get scanned if this happens.

We just have to be patient until it clears when it will be scanned again however this may take several weeks because of the huge backlog of mail especially in some air ports in the US.

The delays are because there are less customs officers and mail workers on duty because of illness and self isolating.
Those that are working are having to work with new distancing and hygiene rules.
Coupled with the above more people than ever are now shopping on line.

I can’t find the coin that I am looking for

If you can't find the coin or item that you are looking. first try searching the year and country you would like in the search bar on the left hand side above the index on QuirkyGirlWorkshop front page:- https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/QuirkyGirlWorkshop

Or just message me, I may have it, as I have too many coins and items to list

Gift wrapping and packaging

All items come in a pretty little natural coloured gift bag, or luxury gift box hand tied with an organza ribbon and bow, which ever is appropriate for the item
This is at no extra cost.
Unfortunately I cannot add extra gift wrap

I entered the wrong shipping address what can I do

Please contact me right away
If you can give me the correct address before I ship your order, I can create your shipping label accordingly.
Please note, when you receive the shipment notification email from Etsy, it will still show the wrong address, because we can’t change your address recorded on your Etsy order.

Unfortunately if your order has already shipped I will not be able to redirect it

If I order more than one item can the be shipped together to save on shipping costs

If you are an international customer and you order more than one item at the same time, I can ship them together and you will only pay the postage for one item, as long as they are going to the same address.
