The wallet is perfect! Ruth was very helpful and understanding with my order. If you want just a place to hold cards, this is the wallet for you!

This item is so precious, unique and genuinely good quality that I forgot about the long shipping time entirely. (I bought it over Christmas so the shipping time is understandable.) I bought it as a gift for my partner, and now am considering getting on myself as it's so gorgeous. It is finely crafted and a unique item to add to any collection. A very well made item <3

About

Creating beautiful laser cut jewellery out of eco friendly solid woods.

OMGosh was started to create unconventional and luxurious laser cut jewellery . I have a passion for mixing media: bamboo and acrylic, solid wood and gold leaf with a smattering of Swarovski gems, creating signature pieces which turn heads but only take themselves as seriously as you do. After years of designing for other brands, working at a laser cutting company, I handed in my CV, packed up my belongings in a red spotted hanky and set off to make my fame and fortune in London

I have been creating jewellery since I was a child although oddly my locally sourced, sun baked mud-and-clay seed beads didn’t take off when I was 7 years old – it must’ve been a lack of advertising. Over the years my manufacturing methods became more sophisticated and I made my first laser cut pendant in 2002. I fell in love immediately with how this hulking square of metal covered in carbon dust could create things of such delicacy and beauty. In 2011 I was recruited fresh out of doing my philosophy masters to work in a laser cutting company. Leaving my university town in Ireland before the ink of my dissertation was dry I moved into an old cottage in Glastonbury and began memorising every nut and bolt of the laser cutters.

I worked for three years designing jewellery and home goods for a variety of customers. I adored working with people, listening to their needs and helping them create truly unique lines. However I often found myself working with people who cared more about the bottom line than the quality. Drawn to luxe materials and with a passion for perfecting each item before unleashing it on the world I came to the conclusion that if other companies weren’t making the sort of jewellery I wanted then I would simply need to do it myself.

So I moved into the attic of a Victorian vicarage just outside of London and OMGosh was born. With a distinctive lavish style and a focus on you, the customer I created an eco friendly company working with the highest quality materials and sustainable solid woods to make eclectic pieces which are truly, out of the ordinary.

Frequently asked questions

What wood should I choose?

Wood is a natural material and varies in both colour and grain. For best results pick the right wood for your design:

Walnut: Silky smooth wood with very little grain. Ranges in tone from espresso to light brown. Takes fine detail very well with a low contrast between the image and wood.

Cherry: Light coloured warm pink/yellow tones with low grain. Perfect for high contrast high detail images like drawings.

Mahogany: Warm dark brown with a strong flecked grain but little variation in tone. Looks gorgeous plain or with a simple, low contrast etch such as initials.

Oak: A classic wood with a prominent grain pattern, it can be a little rougher than the other woods and gives a high contrast etch. Looks best with a simple etch.

Care instructions

Wood is a gorgeous material and can last a long time if it's shown a little love.

Cufflink: Our cufflinks are made to be extra robust to cope with daily knocks but they're not a big fan of water! please don't submerge them.

Wallets: Please do not keep your wallet in your back pocket. Although it doesn't cause discomfort when you sit on it it can put stress on the hinge, particularly if the wallet opens from the top.

Keychains: Our keychains are designed to stand up to most things. If you have a light coloured keychain please be aware that keeping it in your jeans may discolour the wood.

Wholesale and Bulk buy discounts

At the moment I do not offer wholesale on all OMGosh items, please contact me to discuss what is available. We do offer bulk discounts - if you're buying several pairs of cufflinks for example please head to the main shop to find the bulk discount listings.

How long does shipping take/do you have a tracking number?

We do offer tracked shipping during purchase for all orders. The standard first class/international shipping does not include a tracking number so I am unable to give you a time frame for when your item will arrive. Royal Mail aims to deliver in

UK: Within 3 working days
Europe: 3-5 working days
Rest of World: 5 - 7 working days.

Please note that working days excludes the weekends and national holidays. These times are estimates and delivery during peak times such as Christmas may be slower. Please always check your local sorting office and customs to see if it is being held there.

If your parcel hasn't arrived two weeks after the expected delivery day during standard postal times I will classify this as a lost in post.
