Handmade item


paper, pencil, gold leaf


Height: 8.5 Inches; Width: 8.5 Inches

usually listed at £85
This is a fairy drawing in pencil and gold leaf. I love any excuse to use these two media together as the gold leaf compliments the monochrome of the pencil so well. The effect is sumptuous without being gaudy. Please note, the paper this is drawn on is a creamy white, not grey - sometimes it appears grey in the photographs only because the gold leaf catches the light and makes everything else look darker.
I have several other 'Gold fairies' that I am listing in my Etsy shop.

Size of the drawing is about 8.5 inches / 21.5 cm square.

The price of this drawing is for it unframed, though I can discuss framing options on request. Some of the paintings I am listing on Etsy are currently in frames and it might be possible to send them with their frame, but at an extra cost.

If you have any questions, please do contact me.

Returns & exchanges

If you are not happy with an item, please contact me. I will replace or refund damaged or lost items. I can also refund returned items that are undamaged, but that you do not want, however in this case I cannot refund the shipping.

Items that you do not want (but are undamaged) must be returned to me first before I can issue a refund, damaged items may sometimes be replaced without first being returned, unless they are limited editions. I will refund the return shipping if you do have to return a damaged item.

Delivery policies

I will always replace or refund any items lost or damaged during shipping. I do not usually send items with tracking or insurance for the following reasons: It would push up the cost of shipping for every item, and that the shipping insurance generally only covers the cost of my materials in any case, not my time and work.

In my experience very few items are lost in the post, and my policy is that I would rather replace lost or damaged items and cover the cost myself. This keeps my shipping costs down.

Please be aware that I ship from the UK, and for shipping overseas (especially in the weeks before Christmas), the time taken for an item to reach you can vary considerably. If your package has not arrived in the time expected, I will usually ask you to wait a few more days before sending out a replacement, but in the event that your order does not reach you be assured that I will always replace lost items or refund where an item is irreplaceable.

I ship inland by Royal Mail, overseas by Airmail.


Secure options
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I can accept payments through Paypal (for which you don't have to have a Paypal account - Paypal may also be used to pay by credit card), and I accept credit card payments through Etsy's direct checkout.

I also accept payments by cheque (check) or Postal Orders, provided they are in Pounds Sterling ONLY. If you wish to pay by bank transfer, this is also possible, but please note that if the bank is not a UK bank you may be charged a fee, and international bank transfers aren't usually a good way of sending small payments for this reason.

Additional policies

I can provide wholesale prices for large orders. This is generally 20+ cards or 10+ prints. For smaller multiple purchases I can usually offer a small discount on request.
