About

Obsessed with all things nature and vintage....

As a trained silversmith and blacksmith I found it a bit tricky and messy to make work from my tiny apartment and I couldn't afford studio space, so I was delighted when I discovered shrink plastic!

I spend most of time designing and making shrink plastic jewellery. Although shrink plastic is traditionally a material for kids to create with, I feel i've managed to create rather grown up jewellery! All my pieces are finished with a thick glossy glaze which give them a ceramic / enamel like look and feel. When I sell at fairs people are always guessing as to what the material is! The great benefit is that even though it's an extremely durable and tough material (i've been told my brooches have survived washing machines!) it's incredibly lightweight so it won't way you or your clothing down!

This is what I do for living now full-time so I feel very lucky! I get a great thrill from making something that someone else will treasure for many years to come.

    Hello! I'm Kirstin - I'm the boss, well to be honest it's only me here! I design, draw and colour all the jewellery. My other jobs here are to eat a lot of cake and drink a lot of peppermint tea. I'm quite good at those jobs.
