earrings, jewellery, stud -

You may have noticed, but we have recently launched stud earrings! Long requested, we finally got around to it and our new range of studs is proving very popular.  You can find everything from skulls to stars, moons to tombs and all sorts in between! I love all my designs of course, but I can't help but have favourites - and these tombstone studs are so cute they've gone straight to the top of my list! We really do listen to all your suggestions for what types of products you would like to see, so if there is anything you...

Greetings fellow bats! I'm sure you're aware by now but we have launched our very first clothing range! It's taken a long time to get to this point, and we are really excited to finally have these products available. Adding clothing products has always been on the to-do list since we first started nearly 7 years ago. In fact, before I ever made jewellery I actually made clothes - either by customising my existing clothes or sometimes just making full garments from scratch! I'm not going to claim they were amazing, but they were certainly unique. I would spend hours...

depression, despair, fear, mental health, solitude, sorrow, talisman -

For me, they have a cathartic effect – helping to release me from that which holds me back and reminding me of how far I have come.

However, the universe clearly had different plans. Back in early December 2020 I contracted Covid-19. I promptly paused all sales, thinking I would just reopen after I had isolated for a couple of weeks. Little did I know that I would be one of the unfortunate people for whom Covid is not just a minor inconvenience. My condition deteriorated and I was rushed into hospital on 9th December and admitted onto...

I've always liked to pride myself on building an ethical business. I give 10% of profits to The Sophie Lancaster Foundation. I researched recycled acrylic and became one of, if not the, first people on the planet to make jewellery using 100% recycled acrylic. I made sure everything used is vegan. I sourced recycled packaging, reached out to suppliers to have them stock recycled options for me.  I'll be honest, at that point I got a little bit too self-congratulatory. I was so pleased with how things had gone that I stopped striving for more. I would look at other...
