Creating unique and customized wildlife jewellery to spread conservation awareness and instill a desire to protect the natural world.

Jewellery keepsakes for people who feel so connected to the ocean and the natural world that they want to carry a piece of it around with them every day. The divers, zookeepers, adventurers, travelers and dreamers who've had encounters with these animals that they never want to forget. Capture that moment and treasure that memory with jewellery that commemorates your love for these amazing animals.

My background in Marine Conservation and Zoology drives the attention to detail behind all my designs; I'm a scientist as well as a creative, so all my pieces are as true-to-life as possible.

    I create the master completely by hand, they simply have a larger production and create multiples for me.

Frequently asked questions
I saw an item I love but can't find it in your shop, will you be making it again?

Sounds like you have good taste as this item has most likely sold out! Don't worry, I do restocks constantly, so your item will be back soon. If you'd rather not wait though, or if your item appears to be particularly popular, you can also pre-order. There is no additional charge to pre-order a sold-out item, only an additional wait time whilst I make it for you. Just send me a chat and we'll go from there!

Custom and personalised orders

You may have seen some of my custom orders on social media, so if you're thinking of ordering one, here's the scoop:

The charge is based on the style of charm. E.g., you'll see I have a number of different orca styles in the shop. You pick your base style and that will be the cost of your custom order, no additional cost, just a little wait whilst I make it to order.

To order or discuss, simply send me a message!

Care instructions

I recommend safe storage, out of direct sunlight, and suggest not wearing to bed/in the shower in order to get a long life out of your new piece.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All my items come in either a gift box or gift bag, depending on the size of the charm. I select gift packaging carefully so that compliments the overall theme of my shop. I then pad the orders thoroughly to ensure they safely endure any international travel.

I re-use packaging materials wherever possible, as I'm very environmentally conscious and believe my customers are as well.

I don't include an invoice (as all transaction details are stored electronically by etsy anyway), so if you'd prefer to send the item straight to recipient as a gift, I have both gift-wrap and gift message options enabled on all listings.

Sizing details

All sizing details are listed per item, you should find all the details you need in the item description.

Wholesale availability

I've completed wholesale contracts from tiny boutique businesses up to clothing bigwigs like Lindy Bop, so will be more than happy to discuss a proposed wholesale agreement with you.

I'll need to know which designs you think you'd like, a rough quantity, and a timeline for when you would need them. This will all help me give you a quote faster and get to work quicker.

I look forward to working with you!
