I've been an Etsy shop owner and selling my handmade creations around the world for over 10 years!

Please send me a message if you would like to order multiple items as I am happy to combine shipping wherever possible.

Handmade by Lauren. Recycled beads, copper and brass charms and vintage chains are used. These pieces are whimsical, woodland inspired and decorative. They are meant for occasional wear. Over time, some parts of the jewelry may tarnish, these parts can be cleaned to shiny brass or copper again by using a little vinegar & salt on a cotton bud or soft cloth. Rinse with cold water immediately & dry thoroughly.

All made to order art prints are archive quality giclee prints on 100% cotton rag paper printed by my printing partners in the USA and Australia.

About

Artist, Designer, Vet Nurse. Passionate about the beauty of the natural world

Ginger Kelly began in 2009 when I started to receive offers from friends and neighbours to buy my drawings. I'd heard about Etsy from other artists and sellers I met at markets and decided to open a shop to share my drawings and handmade creations.

I now live and work from my studio in a tiny Australian timber cottage. Here, I'm nestled on the side of a green valley next to a river, cramming every indoor space with my illustrations, fabrics, handmade homewares, cards, jewelry, craft and sewing supplies. I call my work-space 'organised chaos' and I love it to bits. My horse,rabbits, the local wildlife and my little dog Toby keep me entertained with their endless antics.

I work part time as a vet nurse four days a week. Every night and all weekend I'm working in my studio, drawing, painting, designing and running my textile & surface pattern design business Thistle and Fox.

I run both my Etsy shops all by myself. Which means lots of late nights! It is incredibly important to me to be involved in every stage of the creative process... from my first imaginings to creating a custom piece and delivering it into the hands of its new owner.
The main reason I love selling & shopping on Etsy is discovering amazing handmade things from makers like myself all over the world and having direct contact with my customers.

Inspiration comes from many places. Far too many to name in a few thousand words and I've always preferred pictures. I use Pinterest to keep track of all the artists, designers and bloggers that inspire me to think, dream and most of all, create the things I love!

ABOUT MY ARTWORK
◥◥◥ ◤◤◤◢◣ ◥◥◥ ◤◤◤

I work mainly in pencil and watercolor or using digital painting and digital photo collage techniques. Many of the artworks in my gallery are photo manipulations/collages using a blend of painting, drawing, my own photography and some stock images generously provided for use by the photographers and models. If you would like to see more about my art process, take a look at my website:
www.artbygingerkelly.com

♦ Giclee prints are professionally printed on matte archive quality cotton paper, ready for framing. Framed prints available on request.
♦ Sizes vary from small postcards to large A3 posters. All prints have a 1" or 2" wide white border to make framing easier.

♦ All prints are reproduced exactly as intended. Please be aware that images may appear darker on some types of computer monitors.

I hope you enjoy my shop!

Frequently asked questions
Do you offer Combined Shipping?

Yes. Shipping prices are based on average weight of parcels and the pricing of Australia Post.

With multiple items added to your cart the shipping could be a little more than you expected... If you are unsure, please contact me. I will create a reserved listing for you with an accurate shipping quote on your order.

If you have both postcards and large prints in your order, they will need to be sent separately as I cannot roll up postcards.

As a guide, parcels up to 500g shipped internationally from Australia will be $17-25 AUD. Small parcels & Large letters (such as postcard packs) are approx $8-12 shipped within Australia.

Why are some of your items being sent from the USA or UK?

Although I live in Australia, most of my 'Made to Order' prints, tote bags and cushion covers are made for me by my printing partners in the USA and UK.

*This service is only available for items being sent from my studio in Australia.

Care instructions

✔ JEWELRY & Hair Clips/Combs

My jewelry is made from recycled vintage metals and new glass beads. All metals are lead & nickel free so they are safe to wear against your skin but to keep them looking shiny & new it is best not to wear them while swimming and keep them in a dry place when not being worn.
You can clean the metal parts by rubbing with cotton wool or soft cloth dipped in a mixture of apple cider vinegar and salt. It will remove tarnish and make them just like new again! Rinse with clean water and dry thoroughly after cleaning.

This method works best on raw brass and copper. Metals that have been given an antiqued or burnished treatment (the comb part of the hair accessories) are best cleaned with a damp soft cloth.

Custom Macrame Wall Hangings & Plant Hangers

I first learned macrame as a young girl and have recently begun experimenting with this craft again, making plant hangers for my home which keeps my huge plant collection safely out of reach of my pets.

I have a small range of Made to Order plant hangers and occasionally create one of a kind wall hangings.

If you would like a custom made plant hanger or wall hanging, please get in touch with details about what you would like, the ideal size & your shipping location. I am happy to provide a quote & estimated production time.
