Shop policies

Last updated on January 23, 2023
i'm a Brisbane based artist creating waterproof origami jewelry & figurines, resin cast animal skull jewelry, resin coated flora and fauna, steampunk costumes & accessories and steampunk themed insect & plant illustrations and prints. many of my creations are one off, unique items.

everything in my shop is totally handmade by myself. all items are handcrafted using high quality materials and made to order however, slight differences may occur from time to time. that's what makes it unique!

i use many reclaimed and recycled papers in my origami work including postage stamps, comic books, sheet music and books. no books are harmed in my process - i only use books that can no longer be used as books.

pieces are priced according to:
1. size of the model: the smaller something is the more difficult it is to fold
2. cost of the paper varies greatly - bronzed paper is $20 a sheet!
3. cost of the findings: i use a mixture of precious and base metal findings

this is why the same model may sell for a variety of different prices.

most of the flowers and leaves i preserve and resin coat are from my own garden. i even make my own leaf skeletons.

the insects i use are from 2 entomologist friends - one works for a zoo and one for a traveling show for educating children in schools. so they are indeed ethically sourced, often having a spoilt life free from predators and fed the best food, and die from natural causes such as old age (insects only tend to live 3-6 months).

my costumes and clothing are made from vintage, reclaimed and recycled fabrics where ever possible. i favour using natural fibres such as silks, wools and cottons. all screenprinting and dying is fixed so that items can be washed in a household washing machine.
