Hello! I hand craft insects, spiders cobwebs and snails as wall decorations and jewellery. I make everything myself from a room in my house in Edinburgh, Scotland where I live with my two small humans and one big one.

I create with silver plated copper wire, glass, gemstones, sheet copper and driftwood that I gather on local beaches. I have been making my beasties for over 20 years!

Figuring I couldn’t make a living from making things, I chose a more sensible route and took an Ecology degree. Subsequently I discovered that I could combine my artistic flair with a lifelong interest in the natural world, and the science I had studied my degree. The results are my beasties; startlingly full of life, based on actual species and intriguing to lovers and haters of spiders and insects alike.

Over the years I also developed a line of flower fairies and glass jewellery as a diversion. I have recently invited two talented friend that make dragon pieces to join me in my shop and feel their work compliments mine perfectly.

On Etsy since 2011

Hello, I'm Becka and I live in Edinburgh with two small people, another big person and a cat. I feel very lucky to do what I do for a living. Figuring I couldn’t make a living from making things, I chose a more sensible route and took an Ecology degree. Subsequently I discovered that I could by combining my artistic flair with a lifelong interest in the natural world, and the science I had studied my degree. The results are my beasties; startlingly full of life, based on native British species and intriguing to lovers and haters of spiders and insects alike.

They are created from silver plated wire, glass, driftwood, gemstones and sheet copper.

Since I'm making new people these days as well as beasties, I tend to stay close to home doing stalls such as the Edinburgh Fringe, supplying a number of shops and of course making pieces ordered directly by you. Please bear with me and let me know if your order is urgent as my available making time is sometimes childcare dependant.
