Announcement   Home of the finest cruelty-free rat and bird skull jewelry, copper and silver anatomical and ouija board necklaces, and steampunk assemblage pieces. I love Victorian and art nouveau designs, and you'll see a strong reliquary/memento mori influence throughout most of my work.

In "Skulls and animal parts," you'll find my rat skull necklaces, bird skull jewelry, and assemblage pieces made of tiny bones and watch parts. Most of the pieces in here are shadowboxes, but I am one of the few Etsy sellers to treat her eggshell-thin skulls and bones with museum-quality resins to strengthen them, so you may find some pieces that don't need to be protected under a shadowbox dome.

In "Steampunk/Antique look," you'll find a lot of jewelry made from found objects, such as vintage game pieces, coins, tokens, and clock gears and parts. I like to take old bits of brass--cogs and keyplates--and bring them new life by chemically etching designs into them. I favor anatomical and natural history themes.

In "Copper Occult & Anatomy," I keep my hand-cut and etched solid copper pendants. Here I express my love of medical illustrations and the supernatural with lots of skulls, skeletons, cryptids, tarot cards, and ouija boards.

About

From Rainforest to London...

Cheshworth's Fancy Goods was initially launched in early 2010 in the Pacific Northwest, purely to provide me with a little extra travel money. Eventually my sideline took over the rest of my life--there's something pretty addicting about making something with your own hands and sharing it with the rest of the world.

For four years, Cheshworth's puttered along selling steampunk assemblage and shrink plastic jewelry. Two things changed in 2014: I moved to the UK, took a few months off, and relaunched in June; and I started chemically etching copper. The process creates truly unique jewelry out of the rawest of materials, and I'm thrilled to explore this new frontier of creativity. I hope my new European audience will also be excited!

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Send me a message if you'd like an item customized or designed just for you--I'd love to do it! In most cases I'm happy to take your order on and charge you once it's completed and you've seen photos of the finished product, but for heavily customized items that I will be unable to sell to anyone else should you change your mind (i.e. your name on a bracelet), I will require a deposit up-front.

How do I make a return?

Please CONTACT ME, preferably by Etsy message to bypass my spam filter, if you'd like to make a return. London life necessitates a lot of moving around, and I have to make sure you'll be sending your item to the correct address. This also allows me to provide a more personal level of customer service; if, for example, you love your necklace but the clasp breaks, I think we'd both be happier if I just send you a new chain rather than making you ship the whole thing back to me for an exchange.

I accept returns for any reason within 14 days of you receiving the item. If you're outside of that window, please feel free to get in touch anyway--I'll try to work something out that makes us both happy.

Will you hold an item for me?

Yes, send me a message if you'd like me to hold an item for you until you get paid. I'll hold it for up to 3 days for free and for up to two weeks in exchange for a nonrefundable 10% deposit.

Do you have a physical shop I can visit?

NO, at this time I have no brick-and-mortar customer-facing facilities. EU regulations require an address be made public to potential buyers in case anyone wants to sue me, but it's not a shopfront and for insurance and zoning reasons, I can't let you onto the premises to poke around.

If you'd like to see my fancy goods in person, be notified when I have market and craft fair dates planned by adding my shop to your Etsy favorites or following me on Facebook.

Why don't you accept cancellations?

If I accepted cancellations within 24 hours of purchase, I would have to wait 24 hours before shipping every order I receive. As it is now, I don't have a set shipping buffer time; if you place an order the morning I intend to go to the post office, your package will ship an hour after you've paid for it. This is especially vital during busy holiday seasons.

That said, if you change your mind about an item and I haven't shipped it yet, I'm happy to cancel your order. If it's already been shipped, I will take a return within 14 days of receipt, no questions asked.
