"....we are born to twist and curl, spiral and swirl"

I have always been a crafty person, always creating something out of nothing, my mum used to laugh at me, creating new clothes out of old (but now it is all the craze!). During my career I have been a photographer, gardener and a florist. I was always the one assigned to make 150 wired buttonholes! This slowly led to me starting my own wedding floristry business and then diversifying to making tiaras.

Our move from Surrey in the Uk to Devon meant that I wasn't getting as many weddings and so after buying a book and teaching myself the principles of jewelry making, started making more silver wire jewelry using semi precious birth and healing stones.

My jewelry developed over time to what it is today, when I first started making the spirals they were huge and messy, but after 3 years of practice they are now tight and even, many people believe I buy them in already made, but I don't! Each one is made by me. I buy in the semi precious stones from all over the world, I tend to choose stones I like and believe look good with the spiral work.

There is another part to T&M - My husband! Mark, he is an artist and we trade together. He has now opened his own Etsy shop and you will find him at Mark Betson Artist.

We go to lots of craft fairs and events including music festivals around Devon, Somerset and Cornwall selling anything we make. I have designed my own website which lists everything we do and more.

Mark and I work closely together, we work from our home in the heart of the Blackdown Hills in Devon, where we have our own studio, which is a lovely space for us to work and share our work, we open the studio up to the public regularly.

This is where the etsy shop plays such a vital role to our success, it gives me the chance to wider my sales opportunities and share our work with the global community in a place that is full of like minded people.

Welcome to T&M Arts and Crafts, experts in spirals, curls and all things twisty!

All the items are made by myself (Tammy). All the jewelry is handmade to order. I aim to create items that are both stunning and unique, comfortable to wear and certain to set heads turning.

I describe items as accurately as possible, including the size of the semi precious stone used, the length/ size of jewelry. I also include a description of the stones properties and birth stone where possible.

I am always happy to do custom orders, where I can change the stone, the silver shape, length or the size. If you'd like more information about a particular piece, don't hesitate to contact us - we're always happy to answer your questions!

All jewelry items are handmade, therefore there may be some slight differences between the silver shapes. The stones sometimes, due to their natural make up may contain some natural flaws. The pieces are sold as described and all sales are final. Please ensure you are happy with the written and photographic description prior to purchase and ask for further information, if required.

If the item received does not match the description, we will be happy to discuss an exchange or refund - please contact us within 72 hours of receipt, to agree an appropriate solution.

We wrap our items very carefully to make sure they arrive in perfect condition for you to enjoy. However, even the most carefully wrapped item can be damaged if not handled with care by the shipping company - we can not accept responsibility for damage during transit.
If you receive an item that has been damaged in transit, please contact us immediately and we will do our best to assist.
It is important to us that we offer the level of customer service that we ourselves would wish to receive and we will always look for a mutually agreeable solution to any problems that may arise.
We accept payment via paypal.

When paying by bank transfer, payment should reach us within 7 days of purchase - items will not be shipped until the payment is cleared.

All items are shipped via the Royal Mail, Airmail to International buyers. 1st Class.

We aim for items to be shipped within 1-3 days, especially if the item ordered is in stock or the materials needed to complete the order are in stock. However on occasion I have to order the stones or have the requested size print printed. If this is the case I will inform you as to how long the item will take (this can be anything between 1 week and 1 month as some stones come from China) you can then decide if you want to continue with the order or choose something else. On occasion prints may be sent via my printer to save time.
I always send a confirmation email to let you know your item is on its way.

All items are listed with the most economical shipping rate and includes all packaging.
It is generally, a very reliable service but does not include tracking or insurance - we cannot accept responsibility for any loss, delay or damage arising.

We can offer alternative shipping solutions at the buyers request. Please note these options are more expensive - please request a quote prior to purchase. We will source the most reliable and cost effective solution to meet your requirements. In this case the order will be completed by a bank transfer or via my cardsave account.
