...lots of making going on in the studio as I get all my stockists topped up for Christmas...! Here's one from Makers Shop & Gallery yesterday with a few favourite silver necklaces from my 'Brass Geo' range, and my trusty KeepCup...!

About

Quirky Stylish British Makes!

Hello, I'm Red Bird Makes

I've always been quite creative from a young age but never really got more involved in it until my recent years. I have since realised that this is my calling and making and creating is absolutely what i love to do - all the time!

I love the vintage era and would love to go back to the 40s/50s and live life back then, when life seemed much simpler...

My makes have a somewhat quirky appeal and playfulness which is a bit like me...i don't ever like being too serious if i can help it! I love bright colours, am not afraid of being bold and standing out from the crowd and i think you shouldn't be either!

I have a love for working with wood, felt, metal and acrylic. My love of colour and vintage shows through my makes.

I very much practice recycling, upcycling being sustainable and mindful about our planet and hope that you will too. I use as much recyclable and compostable packaging as possible. Please try and re-use/recycle my packaging, or pass it on to someone who can use it!

I love visiting flea markets, junk shops & jumble sales. Always having my eyes peeled for bargains! I love finding vintage fabrics, furniture & homewares!

All my makes are made by little old me in my tiny studio at home. I love working here as my home is full of inspiration to me.

Love & peas...x

Additional policies and FAQs
Metal Jewellery Care:

All metals including silver and gold will naturally patina over time and at differing degrees on different skins.

To best look after your piece:
- keep in the box provided when not being worn. Air, and specifically the moisture in the air oxidises metals (including silver and gold) which makes the metal darken/patina.
- don't wear for extensive periods of time as body sweat will make metals tarnish.
- don't wear to bed, swimming, sauna, exercising as chemicals will corrode the metal, and sweat will darken the metal quicker.
- always put on your jewellery last thing when getting ready. Body lotions and perfumes will discolour and damage it.
- as long as you haven't exposed your jewellery to chemicals such as the ones above, you can bring back the original colour and shine by using a little brass/silver polish or just a little washing up liquid, warm water and a non-abrasive cloth. Make sure the jewellery is always fully dry after cleaning.

Plated items have a shorter shelf life than say sterling silver or gold, so if you would like something to last you a lifetime, I would recommend my gold-filled and sterling silver chains and pendants!


Wood Jewellery Care:

The lasercut wood pieces have a paper image strongly applied to the wood which I then spray a water resistant lacquer on top to protect from light rain, however it is advised to not get these pieces wet if you can help as this may cause damage to the piece.


Porcelain Jewellery Care:

Porcelain is highly breakable, like glass so avoid dropping or knocking on hard surfaces.
Keep in it original box when not being worn as this will protect it from knocks and bumps with other things.
