Being all handmade I can be very flexible in the type of ear-findings that I can offer, whether you have pierced, non-pierced or gauged/stretched ears. If you don't see exactly what you want I'm always happy to custom make for you.

It's just me on my own, a one woman hand crafted operation doing everything from sourcing materials, designing, making, photographing, wrapping and posting. All the jewellery is individually handmade by me, in my home studio. Even if I do make a repeat of an item, as I make all the jewellery one at time every item will be unique.

All of my muses and inspirations make for an eclectic mix of jewellery, that I hope will appeal to the many facets of your personality.

The adornments that I make are created from a mixture of exciting new and gorgeous vintage reclaimed materials. New materials include Semi-Precious, Precious stones, Czech cut, fired and pressed polished glass, Premium Quality Cut Lead Crystal Glass, Sterling Silver, Tibetan Silver, Copper, Bronze and many more. I personally love jewellery to look old and "lived in" so I will often use Patinas to give them an aged look.

On Etsy since 2014

A one woman hand crafted operation doing everything from sourcing materials, designing, making, photographing, wrapping and posting.

All the jewellery is individually handmade by me, in my home studio. I make all my items one at time, so every item will be unique.

From being very young I have had artistic yearnings to create drawings, paintings, pottery, models and because of my lovely Granny and Mum who taught me how to sew and knit I have created many beautiful and sometimes unusual clothes, but all have been for my own use. Then I developed an interest in making jewellery for myself, mainly because I wanted to wear something special, that I knew no one else would be wearing. I also have made my friends and relatives many unique pieces as Birthday and Wedding gifts. I have been a bit of a craft-o-holic over the years and have tried my hand at many and varied crafts such as glass painting, weaving, willow basket making, pewter casting, blacksmithing, bronze casting (I have even cast my own Bronze Age style sword). My taste and styling definitely lean towards “alternative” or “Goth”, but I also love historical jewellery and clothing (Egyptian, Roman, Iron Age, Victorian, Art Nouveau, Art Deco).

I also have been a fan from being very young of not-quite-your-regular TV shows such as Dr Who, Adams Family, The Munster’s and Buffy, which often inspire my ideas. My film interests also have a leaning towards the magical or fantasy such as Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and anything connected with fantasy, vampires, pirates, sinister fairy tales and mythical creatures.

I was enthralled and excited by the music of the New Wave and Gothic subcultures which has also greatly influenced my taste in clothing and jewellery. My other influences stem from my more spiritual side which is definitely nature based. I also love yoga, belly dance and have a keen interest in complementary therapies.

Recently I had more yearnings to start creating jewellery again, so I unearthed my fabulous treasure stash of amazing beads and findings. With the help of the internet I thought that I would try my hand at sharing my creations via the wonderful media of this virtual craft fair. The internet has also given me access to new, unusual, beautiful and hard to source materials from all over the world, that I could only have dreamt of in my early crafting days.

The adornments that I make are created from a mixture of exciting new and gorgeous vintage and antique reclaimed/recycled materials. New materials include Semi-Precious, Precious stones, Czech cut, fired and pressed polished glass, Premium Quality Lead Crystal Glass, Sterling Silver, Tibetan Silver (lead free Pewter), Copper, Bronze and many more. I personally love jewellery to look old and "lived in" so I will often use Patinas to give them an aged look.

Thank you for taking time to browse my individually handmade creations.
I hope you will get as much pleasure when you wear my creations, as I did when I designed and made them.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalised orders

✩DO I DO SPECIAL/CUSTOM ORDERS?
Yes I do.

✩CUSTOM ORDERS (SLIGHT CHANGES):
Slight changes to current designs i.e. finding/fastenings/length can usually be done free of charge or for a small extra fee (dependent on changes/materials), please message me if you have any requests.

✩CUSTOM ORDERS (MADE ESPECIALLY FOR YOU):
I would love to receive a custom order from you and create a totally unique piece for you. Custom orders take longer from start to finish, due to the one-off design, sourcing of non stock material and the making process of a one-off item, please message me if you have special requests. I'm always happy to make something special for you.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I include gift wrapping as standard with all orders:
*Your purchase will come gift wrapped in an organza bag, acid free coloured/patterned tissue paper (colour & patterns may vary depending on season and/or colour of item). Ready to give as a loving gift to someone special or for a treat for yourself.
*Outer packaging will be a mini corrugated cardboard box (large letter size/will easily fit through a letterbox).

I have had several requests from German customers asking for their item to be sent in "jiffy" type bags rather than a box. I will send items to Germany in recycled bubble envelopes wherever possible.

If you have any wrapping requests regarding colours, messages, or if your country has any postal packaging quirks, please ask.

Do you do refunds?

Yes I do.
✩IF YOU ARE NOT 100% DELIGHTED WITH YOUR PURCHASE, YOU MAY RETURN YOUR PURCHASE✩

EU buyer protection laws allows EU residents to return items (I also extend this policy to worldwide buyers, providing the following conditions are met):
✩The buyer must contact the seller within 14 days of receipt of goods.
✩The buyer must return the goods within 30 days of receipt of goods.
✩The buyer is responsible for paying return shipping costs using a tracked and signed service.
✩Upon receipt of the returned goods the seller will issue a refund.
✩Refunds cannot be given until the goods are returned.
✩EU refunds include cost of goods plus initial shipping.
✩Non-EU refunds include the cost of the goods but not the initial shipping.

Where do you ship from?

✩All items are shipped from Manchester, United Kingdom✩

UK SHIPPING:
✩For most of my items, UK shipping includes First class "signed for" postage service.
✩If an item gets lost or damaged in the post (photo evidence of damaged packaging/item is required for a claim, also packing must be retained) I will send a replacement item whenever possible and if not (due to one-of-a-kind materials) I will offer a full refund of the item price and shipping.

Do you ship worldwide?

Yes I do.

✩All items posted to outside the UK I send by Royal Mail "World Track+Sign" (tracking/signature availability may vary from country to country, as some offer both, but some offer only one or the other).
✩The buyer is responsible for any customs, tax or levies should they occur.
✩International orders may be delayed by internal postal systems and/or custom controls/checks, so please be patient. I am not responsible for delays once your items have left my hands.
✩If an item gets lost/damaged in the post (photo evidence of damaged packaging/item is required for a claim, also packing must be retained) I will send a replacement whenever possible and if not (due to one-of-a-kind materials) I will offer a full refund.

Is there anything else I need to know?

✩SMOKING?
The items I create come from a non-smoking household.

✩PET ALLERGIES?
Please be aware that I do have 2 lovely cats which can sometimes be very curious when I'm crafting, so please purchase only if you are happy with this.

✩PHOTOS?
All my photos are taken by myself, using an iphone using natural daylight, a bit of white paper or cloth, plus a few props.

✩VARIATIONS?
Please note that there may occasionally be slight changes in very minor details to findings (ear wires and such), due to me only buying/making in very small quantities, these changes will not affect the overall design of the jewellery.
