Announcement   Polkadot Shirley is a one woman venture run from a little workshop tucked away in the Cornish Countryside.

It is in this workshop that dog-earred books, out-of-date maps, battered old annuals, long forgotten music scores and various other paraphernalia are given a magnificent new lease of life!

They leave proudly, revived and transformed into unique pieces of jewellery, brooches and cards oozing with nostalgia and as beautiful keepsakes. Most items are therefore one-of-a-kind.

Whether it's tapping into the imagination, rekindling the magic of childhood or supplying a cheery dose of nostalgia, Polkadot Shirley's goal is to spread a bit of happiness about.

Polkadot Shirley items are true keepsakes, with each piece truly one-of-a-kind. If you're looking for that perfect, unique gift for a special occasion, bespoke items are also available.

Additional policies and FAQs
BESPOKE MAP PIECES:

Map items will often display signs of wear on the map itself - creases, small marks... With most of my maps being many decades old, this is inevitable. I think it adds to the charm.

I endeavor to produce a customised piece that will be a talking point for the very best reasons and as such like to find out exactly what you have in mind! Before the figurines are set into their place on the frame forevermore, I will send a photo of your completed piece asking for confirmation to complete. After this, changes to figurines/ maps & frames can not be made so please look closely!

ORIGINAL IMAGES:

Due to the nature of the materials with which I work (old books and paraphernalia), each item is generally a one off. However, if there is something you like that has sold, please contact me as I may be able to make something similar. Please note, no images are ever copies. They are all originals!

Any questions at all, don't hesitate to drop me a message and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
