hand embellished, accessories, STATEMENT EARRINGS & TASSEL JEWELLERY made with vintage and recycled fabric

COLOURFUL STATEMENT JEWELLERY AND ACCESSORIES by dAKOTA rAE dUST

I create handmade and embellished clothing, accessories, STATEMENT EARRINGS & TASSEL JEWELLERY. My work combines bold vinyl prints, that i design on illustrator with vintage and unusual fabrics, which are often scoured from charity shops, house clearances and kilo sales. Recycling preloved fabrics is a passion of mine.
I have developed my own unique embellishment technique, layering applique panels with hand cut, vinyl printed shapes, stitching either by machine or hand to create an unusual textured finish.

---------------------------

I began my making, initially for entirely selfish reasons. My day job at the time required me to wear a boiler suit or the same paint covered clothing 5 days a week, so come the weekend I was desperate to claim back my style.
Getting dressed was my creative outlet and my outfit a statement that this time was mine.

I printed, stitched and embellished garments and accessories for myself that made getting dressed F U N !

When I’m curating an outfit I love the contrast between something old and something new, the unexpectedness of a bold pattern against a vintage floral print and that now signature, flash of FLUORO !!

This eclectic aesthetic is reflected in my designs. In order to create pieces that are truly unique I mix found and vintage fabrics with new, vary textures and combine vibrant, eye catching colours. Every piece is a well curated collection of colour and texture, combining fabrics and prints. Bringing new life to old fabric by updating and reworking, to create something PLAYFUL and NEW.

I’m a firm believer in colour’s ability to lift mood, and that dressing to please ourselves can be empowering and confidence building.

I want to create jewellery and accessories that bring these benefits to the wearer.
Fun fashion for those wanting to channel their inner BEYONCE / FESTIVAL WILDCHILD / EXOTIC ARIEL ARTIST (delete as appropriate )

I know i'm feeling under the weather when dressing up looses it's appeal and that i'm on top of the world if i'm wobbling to the green grocers in my best wedding hat and heels. (my hat is a vintage, lilac, perch on top style with a matching synthetic flower and small veil . . . slightly crushed . . but still looks good with a patent orange pointy toed shoe)

If adding some fluorescent bLing to your ensemble gets your day off to a good start then i suggest you join me. Dress up for the everyday and feel wedding ready, even when you're buying sweet potatoes.


I believe that handmade should mean WELL MADE. I always strive to use good quality components (such as chunky metal toothed YKK zips in my cLUTCH BAGS and PURSES) and make sure my products are made to the highest possible standard.

Frequently asked questions

I cannot offer refunds or exchanges on CUSTOM and PERSONALISED ORDERS. Please consider your idea carefully before purchasing. Get in touch with any questions before ordering and i will be happy to answer any queries.

Sizing details

I embellish a selection of new and vintage items.

All NEW items should include a size guide image within the product listing. If you find a listing where one has not been included please let me know with a quick message and i can send over to you.

Vintage items may not adhere to this standardised sizing scale but i will include an estimate size in the product description.

I aim to include as much info as possible in my listings but if you do require more specific measurements or size comparisons please get in touch and i will endeavour to help.

Care instructions

GARMENTS
The vinyl printing techniques i use to embellish my wares are machine washable at 30 degrees.

(Officially the vinyl is built to withstand a hotter wash but in order to keep the multiple layers of vinyl print used in many of my designs in top condition for as long as possible i recommend a cool wash.)

After machine washing shake out and leave to air dry on a drying rack or line.

DO NOT TUMBLE DRY
DO NOT IRON DIRECTLY OVER VINYL PRINT.

If ironing please turn garment inside out and iron on reverse.

ZIP PURSES and BAGS
Spot wash any stains or marks using a sponge and warm soapy water. Allow to dry naturally.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All my items will arrive gift wrapped in tissue paper.

If your purchase is a gift and you would like some EXTRA SPECIAL WRAPPING please get in touch x
