About

Sea Inspired Gemstone Jewels

I work from my little seaside studio in Devon, England. I've had my shop here on Etsy since 2007, but have been making jewellery for about 15 years now. My shop name derives from my love of the sea and ancient mythology. Kianda was a sea goddess; the guardian of the Atlantic Ocean. In return for offerings of jewellery thrown into the sea, she would ensure a good catch for local fisherman and safe journeys for seafarers.

Over the years, I've experimented with many different techniques from traditional beadwork to lampworking and precious metal clay. I am currently re-visiting some of my older beaded designs from a few years ago and bringing them back to life with a few added twists and even more beautiful gemstones!

When I'm not making jewellery, I am usually drawing or painting, and am also a volunteer instructor with the Sea Cadet Corps.

Please get in touch if you have any questions about my work. I hope you enjoy looking through my shop :)

Frequently asked questions

Will I receive the exact item shown in the photos?

Unless stated in the listing that the item is one-of-a-kind, the piece pictured will be a sample item. Your own piece of jewellery will be made especially for you using the materials described and will be as close to the original as it's possible to get.

Do you do Custom Orders?

At the moment, I am only doing Custom Orders for variations on current designs that are in my shop.

How long will my order take to arrive?

UK Orders ~ Most items are sent using First Class Signed For so will arrive 1-2 business days after being dispatched. Items over £50 will be sent by Special Delivery and will arrive the next working day after dispatch.

International Orders ~ Standard Airmail takes around 5 business days for Europe and 7-10 business days to the US and everywhere else. International Tracked is slightly faster. Please note that due to Customs hold-ups and other circumstances beyond my control, occasionally packages do take longer to arrive. Royal Mail do not consider a package to be missing until 25 business days after the due date has passed.

International Tracked is available as an optional extra. There are no tracking details for packages sent by Airmail
