From deams to reality

****What do I do?****
I create wearable art in the form of wire wrapped jewellery; or use mixed mediums to create artisan jewellery.

The items listed in my shop are not just jewellery pieces; they are dreams made reality.

Each pendant; each earring is a one of a kind item; they may look the same; but each has it's uniqueness; be that through the medium I use; or the width of the crochet stich; or the fold of the wire.

Each piece is a moment in time; a thought made real; a feeling created in solid form.


****Why do I do it?****
I have an innate creativity; which I can not deny, repress or shut off.

I come from a long line of creative minds.

My grand parents were entrepreneurs on both side; they were owners of pubs tailors shops, embroiders, shop keepers.

My parents loved to draw and create furniture from wrought iron.

My brother is a painter, digital artist and musician.

My own creative passions involve creating hand made jewellery using a variety of traditional crafts or more modern techniques as well as using photography as a way of expressing myself.

I love giving life to basic "ingredients" - seeing a stone, a threat of yarn, a piece of wire, a piece of wood; or even a shell and making into something new - it is a compelling idea.

Aesthetically speaking I love things that are symmetrical; uniform; but also intricate and imaginative, almost eclectic - similar to the pieces you see online.

Creativity is at the heart of my being - through creativity I can give life to my inner thoughts, feelings and emotions.

I want to offer my visitors a unique experience; a way of expressing themselves; giving them a voice; providing them an opportunity to show their appreciation to themselves and others.

If I was to have a motto it would be "If you can think it you can create it".

*****Who am I?!*******

I am the designer, creator, producer, photographer, web designer, advertiser, packer, emailer, accountant of the business. All these aspects of the business provide an outlet to my creativity and provides an opportunity to be independent and build a unique brand.

I do have to admit that the Logo is the work of my talented brother.

When I am not twisting wire or crochet something; I enjoying being in nature; trying to grow flowers or other plants.

I have a rich inner world that is fed by the books I read; the films I watch or the places I visited.

Many of the stones, shells, sea glass pieces you find in my pendants are pieces of the places I have visited; so when you buy a pendant you are actually buying a memory to create a new one.

For the time being I have a day job; which takes up the 9-5 part of my week, but in the evening and at the week-ends I spend my time building my jewellery and photography brand.

Creativity is a full-time event!

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging

Items usually will come in a handy organza pouch, if you wish to "gift the item" and want an upgraded packaging; please chose it when you finalise your transaction.

Custom and personalised orders

If you have a particular precious or semi precious stone in mind, I am happy to provide custom items. This may take longer to produce and may be a more expensive piece. This is due to time it takes to purchase the additional material and its cost for the raw materials. Do send me a message and we can discuss details.

Care instructions

Though all copper or silver plated pieces are made from tarnish resistant wire; it may age; as most metals do. Mild soap and water shouldn't damage the finish, however I do recommend removing your jewelry before showering or bathing; using household cleaners, chemicals, or essential oils; doing manual jobs like gardening or washing dishes; and applying lotions.
Do not use jewelry cleaners on this jewelry.
Sometimes the plating can wear off with excessive use - therefore I recommend not wearing the pieces every day.
Rotating your beautiful jewelry pieces creates a new look for you; and changes your mood for that day.
