All my bird varieties are available as stud earrings, dangle earrings, rings, necklaces and cufflinks. If you don't see the variety you want just ask 😊

I spend my days drawing all of the things you see in my shop. I use pens and watercolour pencils to create each piece so they are all individual pieces of art.
It is possible to print onto the material I use but I feel drawing and painting each one from scratch gives each piece a special character and charm.

About

Obsessed with all things nature and vintage....

As a trained silversmith and blacksmith I found it a bit tricky and messy to make work from my tiny apartment and I couldn't afford studio space, so I was delighted when I discovered shrink plastic!

I spend most of time designing and making shrink plastic jewellery. Although shrink plastic is traditionally a material for kids to create with, I feel i've managed to create rather grown up jewellery! All my pieces are finished with a thick glossy glaze which give them a ceramic / enamel like look and feel. When I sell at fairs people are always guessing as to what the material is! The great benefit is that even though it's an extremely durable and tough material (i've been told my brooches have survived washing machines!) it's incredibly lightweight so it won't way you or your clothing down!

This is what I do for living now full-time so I feel very lucky! I get a great thrill from making something that someone else will treasure for many years to come.
