These were just what my daughter in law wanted and they were shipped on time but unfortunately the backs of the earrings kept falling off & she kept nearly loosing the earrings !
Gorgeous colour. Beautifully sewn. Arrived quickly and thoughtfully packaged. Thankyou!
Quirky Stylish British Makes!
Hello, I'm Red Bird Makes
I've always been quite creative from a young age but never really got more involved in it until my recent years. I have since realised that this is my calling and making and creating is absolutely what i love to do - all the time!
I love the vintage era and would love to go back to the 40s/50s and live life back then, when life seemed much simpler...
My makes have a somewhat quirky appeal and playfulness which is a bit like me...i don't ever like being too serious if i can help it! I love bright colours, am not afraid of being bold and standing out from the crowd and i think you shouldn't be either!
I have a love for working with wood, felt, metal and acrylic. My love of colour and vintage shows through my makes.
I very much practice recycling, upcycling being sustainable and mindful about our planet and hope that you will too. I use as much recyclable and compostable packaging as possible. Please try and re-use/recycle my packaging, or pass it on to someone who can use it!
I love visiting flea markets, junk shops & jumble sales. Always having my eyes peeled for bargains! I love finding vintage fabrics, furniture & homewares!
All my makes are made by little old me in my tiny studio at home. I love working here as my home is full of inspiration to me.
Love & peas...x

Additional policies and FAQs
All metals including silver and gold will naturally patina over time and at differing degrees on different skins.
To best look after your piece I would recommend:
- keep in box when not wearing (air will oxidise metals including silver and gold!).
- don't wear for extensive periods of time as body sweat will make metals tarnish.
- don't wear to bed, swimming, sauna, exercising if you can help it.
- you can bring back the original colour by using a brass/silver polish.
Plated items have a shorter shelf life than say sterling silver or gold, so if you would like something to last you a lifetime, I would recommend my gold-filled and sterling silver chains an pendants!
