Recycled paper 

Books, sheet music and...

What do I recycle? Books obviously and vintage sheet music. Unwanted catalogues.

The natural world

This is the most eclectic range of materials. If it's natural and can be made into jewellery this is where you'll find it. Beetle wings, rose petals, bark and ethically sourced cultured pearls.

Vintage & upcycled

Another mixed bag of tricks! This can include vintage cameos, old beads, coins and even playing cards!


Nature inspired

Seed bead embroidery

As well as using materials from nature, I also get insiration from nature, inspiration that is often the starting point for my seed bead embroidered pieces. All made using top quality Japanese and Czech glass beads and crystals.
