About

Turning games and books into Jewellery and Gifts

In 2009, I started taking some handmade Greeting Cards and my Chalk Pastel Drawings to Art and Craft shows in Dorset and Hampshire on the south coast of England.

As an English Literature graduate, I'm passionate about Books and Reading and word games, and so in 2011 I started making Jewellery from damaged-beyond-repair books eg Elizabeth and Darcy Earrings and Holmes and Watson Cufflinks, and Scrabble Earrings.

In 2012, I took a stand for 10 days at the Times Cheltenham Literary Festival. It was crazy busy and I so was glad that my daughter was there to help! I made Cufflinks, Earrings, Key Rings, Necklaces etc from recycled Game pieces eg Lego, Monopoly and Scrabble and also from Sheet Music, Books, Dictionaries, Maps.

Inspired by my success at the Festival, I applied to sell on Amazon. I now have over 800 items listed on Amazon, including Art, Cards, Photography and Jewellery - this also includes Jewellery made from Sterling Silver and Swarovski Crystals, as well as Freshwater Pearls. I'm very proud to say that I have a 5 star rating over 4 years.

I only started to list my Cards and Jewellery on Etsy in November 2016 and I am building it up slowly. At the beginning of May, I reached over 100 Listings.

In May 2017, I added the first of my Demijohn Lights - my newest makes!

In 2018, I will be Listing my Sea Glass Jewellery.

I aim to achieve 100% customer satisfaction - I always like to do my very best to help a customer and I try to offer the very best in customer service and to make the shopping experience as enjoyable as possible!

I love what I do and feel very lucky indeed to be able to try out some of my many ideas - and see what happens!

Thank you for looking at English Gems.

Custom and personalised orders

Please contact me - I'll try to do all I can to help.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I wrap all items I make very carefully - I wrap glass jewellery items in bubble wrap - and then put them inside a gift box, which I then place inside a pretty drawstring Organza Gift Bag
