Announcement   Wanton whimsies for wildlings-- imaginative handmade gothic, witchy, Victorian jewelry inspired by dark fairy tales and folklore, Hammer Horror films, gothic novels and pagan ritual. I also offer lovingly refurbished antique and vintage finds that suggest their own dark histories.

All handmades are created one at a time in my little Victorian house in a cobblestone street in the shadow of the medieval walls of the city of York, where I'm serenaded by the hum of trains coming and going from the rail station and the howl of the Barghest prowling the snickleways of the ancient city.

About

Linking Magic and Mayhem. One Bead at a Time.

I haven't always made jewellery. Once upon a time I worked in an investment bank in the City in London, and then I was a therapist in a hospice, and before that I was a painter and writing teacher.

I found myself in a strange land, having moved to the UK from the US, and like any good fairy tale, I had to use my cunning to get by. That was over ten years ago. I am a writer and jewellery designer and maker based in Banff on the North East Coast of Scotland.  I offer imaginative handmade gothic, witchy, rockabilly and Victorian jewelry inspired by dark fairy tales and folklore, Hammer Horror films, gothic novels and pagan ritual. I also lovingly refurbish antique and vintage finds that suggest their own dark histories.  All handmades are created one at a time in my workshop and home in  what was once a school built in 1803.  I'm serenaded by the wind, waves and sea birds on this wild edge of the North of Scotland.

Though I'm now living in Scotland, I came of age on the West Coast of the U.S. and that sunny nostalgia and the cultural hybridity of Cali still brighten my imagination.

I work with copper, sterling silver, and carefully chosen semi-precious stones. Sometimes I use fire polished and pressed Czech glass, Swarovski crystals, and antiqued brass findings. I combine recycled fragments of vintage jewellery and rosaries. I occasionally use Tierra Cast findings, because their quality is unmatched.

My Etsy shop is a two-person family operation. I design, make, and photograph the pieces myself. My partner Michael answers queries/conversations, packs up orders, and posts parcels to my lovely customers all around the world.

I value every customer, and we always strive to answer queries the same day. All items come gift wrapped as well. I'll never forget the first time I saw someone while out and about who was wearing one of my designs! I didn't know her, but I felt like I'd seen a friend.

What my customers are saying:

"Great seller, very communicative, super fast shipping, and stunning jewelry. One of the best shops on Etsy." -Aliza C.

"Fast delivery and pretty wrapping and pouch. Lost for words, this is such a lovely necklace, perfect fit. The little bat has lots of detail, really sweet. If you love bats or like something a little unusual, I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this lovely necklace. The Czech amethyst crystals are exquisite." - Jacqui D., UK

"...everything is beautiful ... you have magic hands!" --Sarah, Germany
