Bringing you closer to nature with joyful creations

Come with me on a journey into Creatureshire! Here you will find unique animal jewellery inspired by nature and by the many wonderful organisms that share this planet with us.

My name is Inês, and I am the person whose hands and imagination bring Creatureshire alive. I am endlessly surprised by how life thrives, even in the most unexpected places. And I keep learning about creatures I never knew or imagined that existed.

Ever since I remember I have always been passionate about nature. I grew up in the incredible countryside of Sintra in Portugal, where I spent a lot of time observing nature in close detail, from the beach tide pool creatures, to the Mediterranean scrublands next to my home and the magical hills of Sintra.

As a teenager, encouraged by my mother, I started making small animals from polymer clay. I was bringing the creatures I saw into my own hands.

Creatureshire was born in 2014. The name was inspired by the shires, as territories, but also by JRR Tolkien imaginary. In the Middle Earth, the Shire is a verdant and magical scenery populated by hobbits. I thought that I would like my designs to inhabit a world of their own, and also, the world to which all of us belong. And so Creatureshire appeared!

Currently I focus on the connections between different species within their habitats to build collections that express how special each animal or plant is and how they relate to one another.

Creatureshire’s designs are handmade by me in small limited batches. Each piece of jewellery is special: every creature has its own character and there is a sense of joy and wonder from their early beginnings as sketches to the final piece of jewellery.

I hope that you enjoy your journey into Creatureshire. Have fun exploring!

Care instructions

Take care of your polymer clay jewellery, so it brings you joy for a long, long time!

:: Clean your jewellery with a soft cotton or flannel cloth to remove any dust.
:: If you need to, you can wash your jewellery with mild soap and water. Always rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth.
:: Avoid exposing polymer clay jewellery to water for long periods as the clay may break down.
:: Keep your jewellery away from high temperature sources, such as radiators.
:: When not in use, keep your jewellery stored away from the light.
