About OVGilliesDesigns

Sales 412
On Etsy since 2008

From art, design & writing to theory study & back to art, design & writing

It feels like I have been making & re-making just about everything I possibly can, so it's just the way I like, since I can remember. I learnt sewing, knitting, embroidery, painting & sculpture while still very young & then nothing in my wardrobe or room was safe. At the same time I couldn't get enough of the rocks and minerals section of the Natural History Museum - it became my favourite place to go to whenever I had time. I was fascinated by crystals, by the variety in nature, by the fact that in some places on Earth one can come across something so amazing. Every trip turned into a hunting for rocks and minerals expedition.

Through the years my 'obsessions' have never left me - like crystals, they slowly grew and developed into something that is now an intrinsic part of me & my life.

Shop policies

Last updated on April 3, 2013
Please read the policies below before purchasing.


As far as possible items are described accurately. However, some slight mistakes might occur from time to time, especially as each item is individually crated by hand & I might not have had sufficient quantity of coffee when I was listing it :)

The colour of the item might be slightly different from that shown on your monitor. I try to make as accurate photos of the item as possible - all in daylight, but I'm not a professional photographer, some colours still defeat me from time to time & I live in Scotland where light has a subdued northern quality further darkened by overcast skies and rain on most days. So some items might appear on photos less 'sparkly' and more 'grainy' then they are.
