Beads & Bashing, Shades and Shape.

My shop has two very different styles of jewellery. I make seed beadwoven pieces and elegant silver jewellery. Some people can't understand how these, very different, approaches can come from the same person. It's very simple really - I love both colour and shape.

Colour has always been there. At some point I was led to the myriad shades of seed beads and even now my beaded pieces, small or large use colour shifts or tonal combinations.

Having said that my Father was an engineer and toolmaker and he passed on his need to problem solve and bash metal. My silver jewellery tends towards quite graphic shapes even if they are usually inspired by nature.

"How do you have the patience?" That's simple too - I love the challenge. And when my patience for beads runs out, I go bash metal. Perfect therapy in my opinion!

At the end of the day I can't stop making!! It was either sell my jewellery or buy a bigger house.

Thanks for stopping by. All the items in the shop are made by myself in my little studio in London UK.

I have attempted to list as much information as possible regarding materials, sizes etc in each listing but should you require more please do get in contact.

I have both ready- to-buy and made-to-order items in my shop. Each listing clearly states whether they are are ready to go or whether they are made especially for you.

All orders are either wrapped in tissue inside a gift bag or presented in a tissue lined gift box. They are always dispatched in either a padded envelope or postage box, just to make sure your Postie gets them to you safely.

If anything else is unclear please do get in touch.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
I hope you are really happy with your Ng item, but if you are not, please let me know within 2 days of receiving it. The item must then be returned to me, unworn and in it's original packaging, within 7 days for a refund once it's arrived safely. Please ensure that you use the correct postage for the item. If the piece is faulty or not as described then this will be refunded.

Unfortunately, for hygiene reasons, pierced earrings cannot be returned unless faulty or not as described. In addition, custom orders may also only be returned if faulty or not as described.
To make life simple I accept Paypal for all transactions. Payment should be made within 3 days of placing the order.
The cost of shipping is shown at the bottom of each listing and is dependent on the price of the item. Shipping upgrades can be arranged with me before purchase and if the country you are in is not listed please convo me to ask for a price.

Ready to Buy items are dispatched within 3 working days of your payment clearing.

Made to Order items may take up to 3 weeks to dispatch depending on the processes involved and whether Hallmarking is required. (to legally sell silver items over 8 grammes in the UK I must have them assayed to ensure the quality of the metal.)
As I live and work in London, obviously all my items are dispatched from the UK.
