About

Who is TopazTurtle?

TopazTurtle is the creation of a Sydney based jeweller/designer/crafter/scientist bringing the colourful and beautiful world of handmade resin jewellery and homewares to the world.

The TopazTurtle design studio is based in Sydney Australia. Sydney is full of wonderful people and beautiful natural surrounds that inspires me to create. I take inspiration from the deep blues and greens of the ocean at Bondi, the greens of the gum trees of the Blue Mountains and lots more wonderful inspirations from nature. The colours of my pieces capture the amazing colours of this wonderful city.

TopazTurtle offers a sumptuous range of jewellery including resin bangles, rings, necklaces, lockets, brooches and earrings. In addition to resin only jewellery pieces, I often mix media to create intriguing effects especially for rings, necklaces and bracelets, using natural stone beads and crystal, my own range of polymer clay beads and wire.

TopazTurtle also produces a range of homewares including resin platters, large bowls and unusual small bowls that can be used as small dishes, candle holders or drink coasters. Smaller plates are also available suitable as drink coasters, ornaments or gift tags.

The resin pieces are the stylish result of experimentation with the signature clear shades of resin, various colours mixing effects using dyes and metallic effects, and opaque resins, with the added interest of inclusions such as natural tree resin and raffia.

Every time you purchase an item from TopazTurtle, be assured that each item has been carefully made by hand to ensure the best features of the item are highlighted.

Additional policies and FAQs
All the items at the store are handcrafted or hand assembled. What’s the difference you ask? Handcrafted refer to items that contain resin, polymer clay or metal beads that I have made myself. They may also include beads that I have collected. Hand assembled refers to items made from beads that I have collected over the years. Some of these beads have been in my possession for more than 12 years. I was always a sucker for such things or maybe even back then my subconscious was telling me that these things would be useful one day.

As is the case with all handmade items irregularities are unavoidable. I believe this enhances the piece as this means that while two pieces maybe similar they will never be identical. Whenever possible I will try to photograph the item so that you will be able to see how it looks when you are wearing it, irregularities and all!
