a little bit about 'karalyn shaw' handmade ...

I am always creating in one way or another: a true creative compulsive! 

Ever-inspired by all the beauty and magic of this wondrous life, I love using my hands to make, draw and paint; to translate what I see, feel and think into delicate, elegant and often highly practical, tangible pieces. I am influenced by my love of nature, geometry, literature, philosophy, film, poetry, music and the vibrant cultures and languages of our world.

My handmade items particularly reflect my deep affinity with Japanese, Scandinavian and French aesthetics and cultures.

When I'm creating, I feel much freedom, energy, playfulness and happiness - like a relentlessly excitable child. Perhaps I am 'the child who survived'.

I play with installations, origami installations, origami, himmeli, sculpture, surface-pattern design, printmaking, illustration, handmade papers and bespoke stationery - I do my best to keep the art of handwritten letters, alive! You can see a portfolio of my work and follow my blog at www.karalynshaw.com.

Thanks for stopping by ...

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Please contact me to discuss custom and personalised orders. I am very happy to complete these to your specifications where possible (pending consideration of requested timeframe for completion of your order and availability of specific materials etc). I will give you my best estimate as to time for completion of your order. This will vary depending on the number/complexity/detail of the item/s.

Care instructions

Please be mindful of stitching on the cover and rear of my card when writing your messages.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I am happy to gift wrap orders. Please contact me to discuss specific requirements.

I can also combine more than one item in your order. Please contact me, prior to purchase, should you wish to do this.

I take great care in packaging my items to ensure they are protected adequately for shipping. However, I cannot take responsibility for damage to the item caused during transit.

Handmade items

My items are all made by hand with great care and attention to detail.

Given the handmade nature of my items, there may be some small inconsistencies or irregularities. These add to the uniqueness of my handmade creations! Such irregularities/inconsistencies, if significant, will be mentioned in the item listing.

Great care is also taken in photographing items for sale.
However, please also allow for slight colour variations between your received item and how it appears in online photographs due to differences in light when the photographs were shot and also, different monitors/resolutions etc. Should you have specific colour needs, or would like more photographs of the item prior to purchase please contact me.

Wholesale availability

I am very happy to make items for wholesale agreements. Please contact me with specific requirements.

Purchasing more than one item

I am more than happy to combine more than one purchase in the same mail-out but in this instance, please contact me for a combined postage quote (prior to purchase) when selecting multiple items for purchase. Items wider than 20mm are considered 'parcels' and cost more to post. Similarly, a package weight above 500g costs more.
