Even better than you can see in the picture, and came with a gift!

Was absolutely delighted when I opened my package. The pendant is so beautiful and well-made - it really looks "wet" like the picture shows! The seller was so helpful with the different questions I had for her - she was an absolute sweetheart. Overall it was a very wonderful experience from one artist to another <3 Thank you so much!
Handcrafted Jewelry with a Quirky Edge
Creating handcrafted jewelry, mostly necklaces and bracelets, is my way of relaxing. It's a creative outlet that enables me to indulge both my love of artisan jewelry and my need to play with colours and textures.
My style is scattered. I am inspired by goth, steampunk, colour, sea creatures, the earth, the new and the old.
As you'll see, I love chunky chain in dark colors like gunmetal and copper, and I get a kick out of bright and varied colours. I also love glass beads and use them by the gazillion for my Slinq Bracelets which can be seen in my other Esty store:
Why 'Quirky Oak'?
In the images above you'll see my beloved oak tree in South Africa (where I am originally from). My love of oaks comes from my mom. This was my mom's last oak tree, and it's a very special place for me.
And the 'quirky' bit? Well, quirkyness is something I value. It's what makes people different. Distinctive. Interesting.
