About

Creating jewelry to fund wanderlust

I have always been fascinated by colors and handmade crafts.

A couple of years ago I started making my own jewels, mainly so that I could design and wear exactly what I liked. Now I enjoy making unique and wearable jewelry to fund my travels with my dog and my van (check my blog www.pamthevan.com out!).

I love learning new techniques and am currently loving creating through stone wrapping and macramé techniques.

I love creating custom pieces, so do not hesitate getting in touch should you need something not listed!

Hello and welcome to Makena On the Road!

All items are made by myself with great care and love.
I try to make unique and original pieces wearable on every day life.

When I am creating new jewelry pieces I am most of the time surrounded in nature, by which I get inspired.

I am a nomad and pick up the materials I use in different locations during my travels. All seaglass used is picked up by me (usually in very rainy and windy days in the coast of England).

Please keep in mind that you are buying a handmade not a standardized industrial product, the little imperfections that might appear are the one that make the piece of jewelry so unique!

Shipping
Your jewelry purchase will came beautifully packaged ready to gift to a loved one or to yourself.

I do try to minimize plastic packaging so I am currently making my own paper envelopes to send. I might use normal envelopes if I run out of the handmade ones. I also use minimal to no bubble wrap, depending on how delicate the piece is and how long its journey is (eg. origami earrings will have lots of good bubble wrap, vs none or minimal on a charm necklace). Let's keep it green!

Please bear in mind that I am currently traveling around Europe, so despite my best efforts to keep the shipping policy updated sometimes it will take a couple of days for me to update the current shipping location.

DOMESTIC (Uk Only)
All items will be sent with Royal mail. The package should arrive between 3-6 days from shipping. If you would like the package to be sent with the "recorded signed for" service (which will prove that the item was delivered) please send me a message prior purchasing the item so I can adjust the shipping cost for you. The cost is 1 pound extra for parcel.

INTERNATIONAL
I do ship worldwide using Royal Mail International service. If you live in western Europe it should take about 1 week to get there, if you live in eastern Europe, around 1-2 weeks. Outside of the EU, depending on where you live, it can take up to 3 weeks. I usually ask at the post office how long it can take and send you a private message.

If you would like the package to be sent with the "recorded signed for" service (which will prove that the item was delivered) please send me a message prior purchasing the item so I can adjust the shipping cost for you. The cost is 1 pound extra for parcel.

Packages can sometimes take up to 4-8 weeks due to customs checks or during holiday times.

If you would like to add tracking to your parcel, please contact me before purchasing so I can rearrange the price for you. The international signed for service is an extra £5.15 to the price. If you would like to add insurance, that is going to be an extra £2.60.
