Quality product, fast shipping. Had a little problem with the candles though, but Shona was very helpful and customer friendly and tried to solve it immediately!

These are so beautiful! I bought them as a gift for a friend but seriously considered keeping them for myself instead! (Note: I did the right thing and gave them to my friend)

About

From a hobby to a lifestyle

I've been crafting in various forms since I was a child and I have always loved it. As I got older life got in the way as it so often does. I reconnected in 2011 when I took part in a prayer bead exchange. That year I made gifts for some of my family and friends which led to some friends asking me to make pieces for them. They encouraged me to sell my work so I opened this shop in early 2012. I was so busy at that time, planning my wedding, finishing my degree and working long hours at my day job that I didn't do much with my shop.

At the beginning of 2013 I fell pregnant with my second daughter and started to really think about the life that I want for my family. I'm still working out what that looks like but I know that it doesn't involve long hours and lots of stress working in an office. I want to do something that I love and that allows me to work from home so that I can be with my children. I got more serious about the shop then and started trying to turn my hobby into a business.

I'm still learning the ropes but with the support of my family and the community here on Etsy I'm sure that I'll make it! A lot of my pieces are inspired by my religious beliefs and where I see my place in the world. My business is based on using ethically sourced materials from other small businesses as far as possible. Many of my materials are recycled, reused or recyclable.

All pieces are handmade by me to my own design. Many are one of a kind due to the way that I source my materials.

Hi and welcome to Rocquelaire. I hope you enjoy looking at my items as much as I have enjoyed making them!

I have always loved crafts and made jewellery as gifts often in my teens. I reconnected with beading when I took part in a prayer bead exchange at the end of 2011. Since then I've been working on techniques and looking at different devotional crafts.

I hope you find something here, whether its a devotional piece or just something pretty! If you don't see exactly what you're looking for please feel free to start a conversation with me. I am more than happy to take on custom pieces and work with you to try and create exactly what you want.
