About nicolehill

On Etsy since 2008

Handcrafted artisan jewellery. Made by me, for you.

"I can make that!"

Well, it turns out I couldn't - isn't it always harder than it looks? But in the process of trying to work out how the artist I admired actually did what she did, I found out there were other things I *could* do, and I discovered that I love taking wire and stones and turning them into beautiful jewellery for men and women.

I adore working in sterling and copper (not coincidentally, these are nice, soft metals, which means I can work in thicker wire without breaking my wrists, or my pliers) but I also love the way you can take stainless steel and fashion it into masculine, sleek jewellery that lasts years.

I'm fascinated by the way changing the thickness of the wire or the metal you're working with can make a chainmaille weave look entirely different. I'm amazed that you can join tiny little rings of metal together and create a soft, flexible fabric that drapes around your wrist or neck and shines every time it catches the light.

I love garnets and amethysts. I've discovered stones I never knew existed before I started making jewellery - labradorite, spectrolite, prehnite, iolite. Amazing colours which contrast brilliantly against the pure metals I work with. I've discovered the talent of handmade glass artists, and the beautiful beads they can create.

Every day, every piece of jewellery I make is a joy for me. I'm thrilled that my work has gone to so many places around the world, places that I'm only ever going to see on a map, and I hope that those who buy my work enjoy wearing their new jewellery as much as I enjoyed making it.

If you have any questions about anything I do, do get in touch!

Welcome to my store - if you've got any questions about any of the below, do get in touch. I'd love to hear from you!

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Mastercard Visa American Express Discover Apple Pay Klarna Giftcard
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
Refunds/exchanges should be discussed with me, by Etsy's conversation system, or by email.

I'm more than happy to repair my own products free of charge in the unlikely event that they fail during reasonable use (Please note that reasonable use doesn't include being eaten by pets, for example - though I'm happy to consider repairs for a small cost in that case!)

In the (hopefully unlikely!) event you are unhappy with your product - I know things can look different when you get them home - please contact me as soon as possible. I'm happy to issue refunds for items, where you have requested this within 14 days of receipt. Please contact me before returning any items for details of where to return products to. Return shipping to be paid by the buyer.
Payment should be made by Paypal, or by credit/debit card through Paypal or Etsy's Direct Checkout system.

Payment is due in full when you order - products will not be shipped until full payment is received. If payment is not received within 24 hours of an order being placed, I will send you a reminder to the email address specified during purchase; if payment continues to not be made, I reserve the right to cancel your sale and re-list the item.

Please note that buyers are liable for any relevant customs charges and import duties levied by their country's customs and excise regulators.
I ship prioritaire (France) or standard airmail (EU/international). Delivery times, therefore, will vary depending on the ability of La Poste to run a business coherently. I aim to post within 48 hours of your order, Post Office permitting, unless it's a piece that's made to order.

In the unlikely event that something does get lost in the post, please do get in touch and we can work out where we go from there. It's certainly not your fault if the post office can't manage to make a delivery, so I will be glad to send a new product where possible, or issue store credit/a refund in case of unique pieces.
Additional policies and FAQs

Please note that, unless otherwise stated in the product description, pendants in my shop do not come with a chain.

If you would like a chain with a particular pendant, please get in touch prior to purchase - If I have chain in stock, I will be happy to revise the listing.


Dyed and Treated Stone:

Many of the stones for sale online are treated in some way, to bring out the colour of the stone. Common examples of this are the use of dyes and heat to treat stones and emphasise their colour.

Where I know this has happened to the stones I use, I will disclose this in the product listing; however, not all suppliers are as diligent as one might like in passing on this information.

For this reason, you should assume that the stones in pieces you see for sale on this site may be treated to bring out the colour, even if this is not specifically mentioned in the listing.

If it is vital to you that the stones you use be absolutely natural, with no colour treatment, then please do get in touch to discuss before purchase.


Please note that my jewellery is not intended for use by children, as my work often contains small parts and some pieces may be delicate and need careful handling.
