Rubenabird is now open!

Hello! Welcome to Rubenabird! This is my story...

People often ask me how I came up with the name Rubenabird...
(True story) Ruben and Rubena were the names I gave to two love birds who would visit my garden every day. They were besotted with each other and were full of life, love and colour. These are the qualities that inspire and underpin my creations. As they are kindred spirits, I've taken the name Rubenabird to reflect these values.

Rubenabird is my creative space - a place where you will find beautiful handcrafted items which I have made with loving care and attention to detail. I am a perfectionist, and if something isn't right - I will go back and perfect it until it is right. I take pride in each item that I create. Each item is unique either in style, colour, fabric or pattern.

Rubenabird was first started as a hobby and has now grown to be hugely popular selling to over 30 countries worldwide! Having started Rubenabird, I am continuously inspired by true Australian women - whether they are the city girl, socialite girl, stay at home mum or Australian cowgirls jumping into rivers in the Australian outback. These ladies are truely amazing - yes that's you! You continue to inspire my designs every single day.

My love of handmade crafts started from a very young age. From calligraphy, pottery, basket weaving, soap crafts, glass engraving, wedding almond flowers, hair accessories, necklaces & bracelet making, nappy cakes, cosmetic bags, burp cloths, fabric button earrings etc. I have had many surrounding me who have inspired me to be creative throughout my life. Being creative gives me a sense of freedom to express myself in my work. This love of handmade beautiful things continues..

I am currently obsessed with vibrant colours, patterns and fabulous sparkly fabrics. I find it instantly makes someone smile as soon as they see a colour. So whether you decide to hold a Rubenabird beautifully handmade clutch, brighten up your room with my homeware items or give a Rubenabird gift to someone special, it will definitely bring on a happy emotion! I only create things that I love.

Since becoming so popular organically, I was asked by many shop owners to sell to them directly. So I decided to start my wholesale site specifically for store owners to buy our products at wholesale prices.
Our accessories are now sold to beautiful shops, stores, art galleries, florists, cafes, boutiques, yoga studios worldwide.

My love for Etsy remains! I love handmade. Keep coming back to take a sneaky peek as new items will be added regularly. I am extremely proud of our Rubenabird team - they are amazing and continue to support and improve Rubenabird everyday. We just want to give you the accessories that you love.

Thank you all so much for continuing to love Rubenabird. Your love for our accessories continues to inspire me & the team to create more for you!

Warm wishes, Rubenabird xx

Not suitable for under 3 years old. Please keep these items away from young children and pets. Buyer agrees to release Seller from any liability when making the decision to purchase.

Here at Rubenabird, it is a priority to provide our customers with lead-safe, nickel-free, cadmium-free jewelry products. We cannot possibly test each piece of jewelry ourselves and must rely on the information provided by the manufacturers we purchase from. 

Keep jewellery away from water/moisture as it causes accessories to tarnish and ruins fabric. Avoid water or any liquids (perfume, lotions, etc). Clean the chains after use, with a soft dry cloth to remove skin oils and dust. Store away from sunlight, ideally on a jewelry box or zip lock bag - the sun will discolor the piece and air contributes to oxidization.

Fabric button earrings are perfect for sports (except water activities) and travel due to their lightweight nature! Avoid water to prevent the colour running. All accessories and jewellery are handmade and most of the items are one of a kind, so once they’re gone they’re gone! Earrings may have subtle differences in pattern & colour may vary due to the lighting and fabric print but still just as beautiful.

Resin earrings are waterproof and suitable for shower, swimming. However, if buyers need to realise that swimming in the sea can cause damage to the earrings and reduce it's longevity, and the resin earrings need to be washed with warm soapy water to remove the salt. Chlorine from swimming pools could bleach the resin earrings.

Rubenabird will not be held responsible for jewellery allergies. It is the buyer's responsibility to ensure that they are not allergic/or the people they are buying gifts for are not allergic to the jewellery. Yarns/fabrics/fibers/fills used in crochet projects may contain one or all of the following: wool/polyester/acrylic/cotton. Please read each description carefully if you have a sensitivity to a particular fiber and/or material.

If you are unsure, for any reason, if a product sold in our shop is safe for your particular situation/condition, please do not purchase from our shop.
