Being Creative Feeds My Soul

Being creative feeds my soul and has done since I was a toddler drawing on the inside walls of the family home to daydreaming and doodling faces and flowers in the classroom at school to being taught how to sew, embroider and knit by my mother when I was a bit older.

I hold a BA (Hons) Social Sciences degree, am a certified life coach, intuitive reader, reiki practioner and a mainly self-taught jewellery artist amongst other things. This makes for quite an eclectic Etsy shop :)

I must tell you.....I love pink (but no doubt you’ve already worked this one out for yourself )! Oh and I love pearls, crystals/gemstones, shells, beads, vintage buttons, fabric, old lace, yarn, paper, dried herbs and essential oils and fancy ribbon embellishments and try to incorporate them in some way into most of my work - from jewellery, fabric corsage brooches, to collages, fragranced herb pillows and art dolls! Another love is flowers - roses are my favourite with carnations a very close second, followed by tulips and you will see these figured heavily in my work...sometimes in the background as props in some of my photos or as part of my creations.

I hope you get as much pleasure looking at my creations and hopefully owning a piece or two, as I do in making them!

Refunds (less return shipping) will be made for items returned within 28 business days in the same condition as they were sent out. Return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. Where possible I will refund the item's cost via your original method of payment.

As of June 2014,

Postal orders or cheques will be accepted from UK buyers only. Please mail within three days of purchase. Cheques will need to clear before items are shipped out (usually 5-7 days).

Paying by credit card?
Here's a quick run-through of how to purchase items from my shop
a) add the item(s) to your cart
b) click the checkout button
c) enter your shipping information
d) select “ Pay with PayPal” as your payment method – even if you don’t have a PayPal account and want to use a credit card

You will be taken to a PayPal page for that purchase. It may prompt you to sign up for a PayPal account – but you do not need to. If you do not want to sign up for a PayPal account, scroll down and you will see the option to pay with a credit card or a bank account. After payment, you will be redirected to your purchase order.
In-stock items (already listed) will be shipped usually no more than 48 hours after cleared payment (please allow longer if purchasing over a UK bank holiday or at the weekend). Your item will be securely packaged (to keep costs down, I recycle packaging where possible).

Shipping within the UK is 2nd class mail Royal Mail or in some instances signed for delivery, Your item should be with you within 3-5 days.

Overseas shipping is via standard airmail with tracking (if tracking is available for that country). Under normal circumstances, estimated delivery can be 5-15 working days but do please allow for it to take a little longer - depending on where the item is being shipped to, and this year (2020) with regards to the Covid Pandemic which has created severe postal delays, especially internationally.

Also take into account that delays can be experienced due to seasonal holiday volumes (i.e. Christmas), customs, and adverse weather conditions.


Please note that your country may impose import taxes/custom charges for receipt of packages, which they may expect YOU to pay depending on their policies.
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through or its related sites and services.
This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy.

1. Personal information
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of jewellery, for example), if you contact me directly.

2. Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
• as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
• when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
• if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
• as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

3. Information Sharing and Disclosure
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
• Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
• Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
• Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
• Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

4. Data Retention
I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

5. Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

6. Your Rights
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:
• Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
• Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
• Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
• Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
