About

Statement leather jewellery for stylish women

SlinkyLinks started as a way to turn scraps of leather into beautiful Christmas gift.
From those cast-off I'm able to create avant-garde jewellery, highly fashionable and perfect for every occasion.

Here is how it all started.
I used to work for a shoe maker in London. When cutting shoes, you always end up with funny bits of leather that you can't use for anything, or at least that's what everyone thought...
It was breaking my heart to see so much good quality leather thrown into the bin so I decided to act.
At first, I just thought it would be cool to use those unwanted scraps and turn them into gift for my family and friends. Why not jewellery? And so it started.
I wasn't expecting such a good feedback but seeing how much people like my designs and how much fun I was having, I decided to open a little shop on Etsy and go from there.
Today, this is my day job.

What I love the most about it is the creative process. I have an idea for a design and I just starts working from there. I get different leathers out, I play with texture and colours. I try different ideas until I have created stylish and versatile jewellery that women can wear at work but also to go out.

Working with leather is so rewarding. It's an amazing material, flexible but tough, light but rich. It comes in so many colours and textures that the possibilities are endless. I'm lucky to have access to a lot of patent leather which creates stunning and very rich results. I get most of my inspiration from nature and architecture but also from fashion and trends.

I only work from reclaimed leather. What it means is that I only work from scraps of leather, not from whole skins. I like the idea that you can create something beautiful from things that other people would discard. This also means that I have to work with what I have; however small or quirky the bits, I have to create something from it. And I love the challenge.

I design, cut and make all of my jewellery from my studio in East London. I only work with good quality, allergy free materials like Stainless steel and 14K gold to complement the leather. It took me awhile to find the appropriate metals to work with but I wanted something that people could wear often and keep for a long time.

I will continue to create jewellery that are elegant, versatile and original as long as I can. I never imagined myself as a jewellery designer but now I can't imagine doing anything else.
I hope you will love wearing my designs as much as I love making them!

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalised orders

I love working on custom orders, so if you have an idea, would like a piece customized to you, a longer or shorter size, a different colour, please get in touch!

Care instructions

Leather is quite tough but to prevent tears or marks avoid wetting your jewellery. Always take it off when taking a shower or washing your hands.
• In time, if not store properly your jewellery might lose its shape a little. You can iron it back to shape: iron on the suede side of the leather with the iron on quite hot.
• I use good quality metal hardware for the jewellery but in time you might notice some tarnishing. The best way to avoid it is to keep your jewellery in air tight bags, preventing oxidation. If you do notice some tarnishing, clean metals with a soft cloth and polish lotion.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I send all jewellery in a pretty white box with tissue paper, wrapped in brown paper.
If this is a gift, let me know and I can add a personalised message inside the box for you and some pretty ribbon.
