  • Details
    I love animals almost as much as gemstones! As always I'm interested in symbolism and specifically here, ideas of power or spirit animals.

    My second animal set (after owls) is elephants. Elephants are a gentle and wise spirit animal. They exemplify focused power and strength. When a elephant begins making an appearance in your life it represents a new, improved relationship with the Sacred Feminine in all Her aspects.

    I made three different styles - a two stranded beaded charm bracelet with gemstones and glass beads, a simpler unisex design with woven adjustable nylon thread and a single strand gemstone bracelet.

    Bracelet One - Beaded Gemstone Bracelet
    This measures 18cm (7") long and has an extender chain meaning the fit is adjustable up to 21cm (8.2"). This bracelet has two strands of beads and gemstones strung on strong 'tiger tail' beading wire. This comprises the following semi-precious gems: tiger eye gemstone tumbled chip beads, smoky quartz and banded agate (brown, caramel and charcoal colours).
    There are also a selection of glass, acrylic and mixed metal beads in a complimentary colour palette. This bracelet has a silver coloured double sided elephant charm sized 19x15mm.

    Bracelet Two - Woven Cord Bracelet
    The nylon cord is a dark brown colour, about 4~6mm wide and 140~145mm long, an average size for women stretching up to a generous size for men (but probably too big for children). It is adjustable by pulling on the strings, each of which are finished with hematite beads and brown agate gemstone beads of 6mm in the centre. The silver coloured elephant charm is 20x14 mm.

    Bracelet Three - Single Strand Gemstone Bracelet
    This bracelet measures 18-20 cm (7.2-7.8") which is a MEDIUM to large ladies size.
    It has a central teardrop shaped brown gem paired with picture jasper round beads with a intriguing brown and sand coloured speckled pattern. There is also mint coloured amazonite, blue topaz and blue lace agate beads in shades of translucent and opaque pastel blue and green shades. The charms include a bronze elephant, bronze leaf and matching picture jasper bead.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Custom and personalised orders

    I offer many custom options, particularly in my ceramic pendant range. All the information is included in the listing details, but feel free to contact me with additional info or questions. I will always speak with you first, before making a custom order, to clarify your design and before sending to check you are happy with the outcome. I ask 10 days from confirmation of order in which to make the piece. Shipping times are additional to this 10 days.

    I'm always happy to work with you to create something special and unique.

    Care instructions

    A lot of the components are natural materials so they can be fragile or prone to attack by water or rough handling. To protect your jewellery, please handle it carefully and remove it before bathing/showering, swimming and snoozing. It is also a good idea to avoid getting perfume, make-up or creams on jewellery.

    Gift wrapping and packaging

    I carefully pack all items in a padded envelope (preferably recycled envelopes where possible).

    I have a 'gift wrap' option and am happy to include gift messages. See my shop photos for examples of packaging featuring lino printed packaging, designed and hand printed by me!

    I send UK parcels Royal Mail second class as standard with proof of posting obtained. I also offer expedited first class.

    I use international track and trace with signature for USA parcels.

    Please check for any customs or import charges in your country, which are the buyer’s responsibility

    What metal do you use?

    Ear wires:
    These are most often silver plated or aluminium. I also use sterling silver, stainless steel (hypo-allergenic) and the listing info has specific information for each item. I am happy to alter ear wire type if possible, just ask. This also includes the clip-on style.

    Wire & findings (jump rings, connectors etc.):
    Most of the wire I use is either copper, aluminium or iron and plated with copper, silver or black colour plating. The thickness I most often use is 0.4mm.

    For more specific information about the components in a particular item, please ask.

    What gemstones do you use & can you make items in specific birthstones?

    Many and yes!

    I love to use semi-precious gemstones like agate, quartz, lapis lazuli (and many many more). I find the reputed mystical and healing properties of these stones interesting (and know many people do) so will include a few lines about these for the appropriate items.

    I think there's something special about using organic materials and wearing treasures from nature against one’s skin. I find it a joy to work with them and hope this positive energy will transfer to their new owners.

    See my 'birthstone jewellery' and 'healing jewellery' section in the shop to find these items.

    What are the clay/ceramic components?

    Clay components
    These are made using either stoneware fired and glazed clay (hardy but can be fragile if dropped) or air-dry clay. I really like working with the latter as there is limitless potential to create unique interesting components and finishes without needing to kiln fire. However it is a bit of a unknown quantity in that I’ve only recently started working with it and have no personal experience of how it behaves over time. The manufacturer information states this is very durable, particularly when varnished and is PVC free, containing only vegetable binders. I varnish these with a double coating but would still recommend taking special care with these components, particularly avoiding rough handling, water or intense heat/cold.

    What do you mean when you say 'recycled' materials?

    I use beads in a variety of sizes, colours, finishes and origins. I’ll be as specific as possible in the listings about materials. I do enjoy using recycled materials as much as possible mainly due the surprise of coming across unusual items of mysterious origins (!) and I’ll pick them up at places like charity shops, car boot sales etc. or even re-purpose my old jewellery. I will always replace ear wires and fastenings though for hygiene reasons.

    Do you post internationally and when will my item arrive?

    Yes I'm perfectly happy to do this and parcels are sent with Royal Mail. I will always dispatch orders within 2 working days (except custom orders). I use Royal Mail second class in the UK and Royal Mail International Tracked & Signed.
