About

Spark & Thistle

☾ Since always, I have wanted to work for myself, create and to make a living, loving what I do. Integrating my arts and earth appreciation, inspired by nature and landscapes, I craft pieces using raw semi-precious stones, minerals and crystals into trendy but classic shapes and designs, that you will keep for years. 

Daily inspirations and curiosities include, crystal and minerals specimens, the life cycle, medicinal and spiritual power of flowers and herbs, astrology, the woods, tarot, lunar cycles, energy, the desert, bird watching, food healing, ecology, anatomy, animals, vintage fashion, the southwest, antiques, love and my french bulldog Munchkin.

Official Shop opening: April 2013.

Additional policies and FAQs
All customers are responsible to read shop policies before making a purchase.

As noted in many of the descriptions, your item may look slightly different from the one shown in the photo. Each piece is one-of-a-kind and unique, therefore no two are exactly alike. That's what makes Spark & Thistle items beautiful!

If you would like to see the exact item you will receive, please send me a message and I will gladly send you a photo. I do my best to describe the colour and size of my items, please note - descriptions of colour can be subjective. Feel free to contact me at any time for more in depth descriptions or photos.

Spark & Thistle cares about the environment and personal health, therefore I do my very best to use all recycled paper for printing, packing, tags, bags and shipping envelopes. All colour dyed bags that jewelry may come in (seasonal) has been dyed with organic vegetables dyes by me. I do not include a printed receipt in your parcel to save precious paper. All items used to create S&T items are thoughtfully purchased from quality sellers to help minimize contributing to environmentally degradating practices. S&T buys solid brass, copper, silver and lead- free bronze metals to insure your health and safety. Spark & Thistle loves using vintage, recycled and reclaimed items and trinkets, new old-stock chains and findings to create gorgeous and less wasteful one-of-a-kind jewelry.


Please let me know if your order is a gift being shipped directly to the recipient.

Spark & Thistle Jewellery is intended for adults only and is not intended for wear, use or play by children. KEEP ALL JEWELLERY OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.

CALIFORNIA BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: regrettably, some items cannot be shipped to California due to restrictive jewellery laws. For further information, please contact me.

Care: To keep your jewelry lovely and lustrous it is recommended that jewelry be taken off before bathing, exercise, swimming, using tanning oils and sunscreens and other harsh cosmetics/chemicals as they may alter the appearance (sun, salt, and pool/hot tub & other chemicals fade/weaken gemstones) of natural stones and tarnish metal.

Spark & Thistle loves the patina that can occur in brass over time, giving it a deep bronze appearance. Natural oils on the skin and acidic skin conditions can patina brass and discolour the skin. The chemical reaction is different in each person and we have no way to predict how it will react on your skin. You can polish your brass with brass cleaner or try cleaning in warm soapy water, then gently scrub (metal only) with an old toothbrush and some baking soda and water.
