About

I'm obsessed by factories - I grew up in them, as my Dad was an engineer. I love their smell & sounds & take my materials & inspiration from them

I've run creative businesses all my life, having 'run away to join the theatre at 16 and having worked all over the country as a Stage Manager then Director, I then worked in urban regeneration with all sorts of communities before settling 20 years ago on a career in the Design sector, as MD of 2 well known commercial interiors practices.

All my work is about the partnerships & collaborations with other creatives, individuals & businesses with different skills. I’ve been self employed for almost 30 years and have won various accolades as a social entrepreneur; I am now the CEO of a Social Enterprise involving people in place making and decisions about their neighbourhoods.

I created the distinctive urban jewellery brand Factory Floor Jewels as a solo creative project, for which I take my inspiration from my healthy obsession with factories and random bits of metal! I love the interaction with people who love to wear my jewellery, whether it is at a craft fair or online via my Etsy store.

Here's my artist's statement:

I am a Factory Girl with a 40 year
fascination with industrial buildings
& the creations that come from them

As a child I often spent Saturday mornings
with my Dad in his office above the factory floor
- he was one of the last, great,
packaging engineers

Many of the objects used to create
the Factory Floor Jewels range are discovered
on the floors of trade suppliers and manufacturers,
instrument technicians & luthiers
in the cities in which I live & work

The collection includes simple basics,
& some more unique pieces
that re-imagine the materials I find

ENJOY
(& tell the story)

Contact me within: 14 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 30 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalised orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
I like all my customer to be happy so if you have any issues about your order please let me know immediately and I will try to resolve personally with you

I try to describe and photograph my items accurately. Please read the descriptions carefully and keep in mind the materials that I work with - Factory Floor Jewels repurposes many of the featured components in the pieces sold here and as such, no two pieces will be exactly identical

So if you are unsure about anything before you purchase, please just drop me a line and I’ll happily answer any questions that you have, or send more images if required

If you receive your items damaged or it is the incorrect item, please contact me as soon as possible after receiving them and we can agree a solution

If you are really unhappy with your purchase and decide to return the item, it must be posted within 4 days of receipt. The item must be returned unused, in its original packaging. I will refund you via PayPal, minus the cost of shipping and Etsy fees.
Payment
PayPal is my preferred method of payment on Etsy as it keeps us both secure; you don't actually need to have a PayPal account to purchase with your credit or debit card, simply select the PayPal option at check-out and follow the link underneath the PayPal login for paying by card without a PayPal account.

Please pay within 5 days and let me know if you are having any problems, if I don't hear from you or receive payment within 5 days I will need to cancel your order

If you're making your first purchase on Etsy, you can check out this handy guide: http://www.etsy.com/help_guide_checkout.php
Shipping
UK delivery is by First Class Royal Mail. If you wish to upgrade your order to Guaranteed Next Day then get in touch as early as possible and I will let you know if I can do this for you, and also the additional cost.

Occasionally things do go wrong with delivery which are outside of my control, if you are concerned about the whereabouts of your order and have not received your item within five working days (UK) of me posting it then please get in touch. For international deliveries please allow 15 working days

I will use the address from your Etsy receipt, so if you want your items shipped to another address, please let me know when you place the order

I ship items internationally by Airmail as standard which is without tracking. If you would like tracking on your purchase then please let me know so that I can confirm the additional costs and sort the extra payment out with you before I ship your item.

Please note that buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred on purchases to be posted outside the UK

As shipping is calculated per item, and is usually listed below the actual cost, please be aware that Etsy will automatically charge you for each item. If you want to purchase more than one item, please message me first to ask if I can combine the postage or reduce the costs for you. I can then send you a discount code or create a special combined listing for you
