This lovely brooch came the day after I had placed the order. It is just what I wanted for a friend who is a cat lover. I am very pleased and would definitely order from Ellie's treasures again.

Super cute key chain, with careful stitching. Has a real handmade feel, which is exactly what I wanted. Not too big either, won't take up loads of space pockets.
How the love of creativity lead to my own little business.
As a child I remember the quiet calmness of listening to the scratching of the pencil as my Grandma made a simple sketch on rough paper. The excitement of turning bed sheets, over-sized clothes and crepe paper into the most stunning princess dress on a Saturday afternoon! I think my Grandma, and my Mum too with her love of make do and mend, stirred the beginnings of my passion for all things creative.
Hand sewing is the thing I enjoy the most - all my wallets, necklaces, brooches and keyrings are made with great care. Each new item starts as a "light bulb" moment and is sketched in my leather note book, then created, often from fabric scraps and unwanted embellishments. There is something very lovely about an item made by hand - the notion that it’s unique and carefully finished and the knowledge that no two items will be exactly the same.
Living with my family in a little corner of rural Lincolnshire, I am fortunate enough to witness beautiful and inspiring scenery, forever altering due to the quick changes in weather. Finding time to concentrate on my creative work, when life can be so hectic, is a time I enjoy immensely.
** Please remember little bits and children sadly don't go together. Items available at Ellie's Treasures may contain small parts so please exercise caution when purchasing for giving to young ones. **

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging
All items are neatly presented as described in each listing. To help the environment, when possible, I recycle padded bags for mailing goods. Should you wish to receive your item in a new padded bag, please let me know at time of purchase.
Colours and sizings
Please remember all items are individually handmade and I try to give a thorough description with approximate sizing and clear photos for each product. Please bear in mind that at times it can be extremely difficult to show the exact colours of an item through photographs and computer screens seem to vary in how they display colours too.
What happens after I've purchased?

Items are normally mailed the following day (Saturday orders are usually mailed on the Monday) and a confirmation email from Etsy will inform you that your order is on its way. UK items are mailed 1st class and overseas via Air Mail.
