Jewellery with a deeper meaning
The path that has led me to create talismanic jewellery as you see here, has been a long, artistic one with many life lessons and some breathtakingly serendipitous turns on the way. For the past twenty years, I have lived and breathed the wonders of images, colours, textures and materials. I have travelled through drawing, painting and sculpting, trying my hand at mosaics, textile printing, graphic design and printmaking among others. I finally settled in the land of artful handmade books for a long while, learning and honing my artisan skills to handle many different materials and techniques. I have exhibited my contemporary bookbindings and sculptural artist’s books in many countries, winning some awards along the way.
But the time came when the creative wander lust took over, and it was necessary to move on, let my inner muse loose on the next adventure and allow my creative expression to evolve and manifest in a different way. The collections of contemporary talismans you see here were born from the longing to explore further creative paths – yet I still see the essence of everything I make being the same at its deepest core. Only the outer form changes.
The roots of my creative expression will always be firmly planted in the rocky shores of Finland, my native country. The glittery waves of the Western Finnish archipelago, the cold winters and symphonies of Sibelius as so deeply engrained in me that anything that has come after is simply fertilising those original roots. I draw from a creative well that blends the visual culture of my native North, with years spent immersed in the British culture and a reasonably long exploration of the Middle East. The most unique blend for my visual direction and sensibility comes from the rugged, Nordic minimalism mixed with the opulent visual richness of the East. I consider colour, texture and other elements meticulously, hoping to create a certain eclectic balance that would connect with individuals around the world.

Accepted payment methods
I ship to most countries via standard international 1st Class UK Royal Mail. The arrival estimate to international destinations is normally 7-9 days but on occasion it has taken up to 14-21 days.
Please note that buyers are responsible for any and all country-specific customs charges and duties that may be incurred.
Refunds and Exchanges
In case of long delays or loss of your parcel, do get in contact with me, I would be just as disappointed as you about it so will do my utmost to make things right. With unique items it's always difficult to replace with exactly the same, but together we'll figure something out, whether a refund or a replacement!
Additional policies and FAQs
If you would like to place an item on "RESERVE" to purchase later, please convo me, in most cases it's perfectly fine. I will then keep the item reserved for you generally for THREE (3) days. If the purchase hasn't been completed within that time, I'll release the item for sale again. However, if you want to reserve until a specific date beyond three days, again, please just enquire.
Express shipping (via courier such as FedEx or DHL) from the UK is *very* expensive but if you require the parcel within 2-3 days guaranteed delivery, I can revise the shipping invoice for you to include the higher postage cost.
