I’m having a great time in my studio creating vintage inspired circus image jewelry, including necklaces, brooches, earrings and more. Being a performer I have an affinity for the arts and the circus has been a huge inspiration for many of my necklaces and brooches. Acrobats, elephants, sideshow performers, lions and other retro images have been the subject for much of my jewelry.

I also love literature and started my shop by creating jewelry based on the pages of classic novels. Inspiration quotes, paper flower brooches and unique Christmas ornaments have been created using altered and upcycled books.

Whether it’s the romance of the vintage circus or the words of Austen, Shakespeare, Bronte or Tolkien, I feel I’ve created some very creative, quirky and inspired art. If you have an idea for a customized piece please contact me and we can create something together. I love a challenge.

I’m always developing new pieces so please don’t be afraid to favourite my shop and come back often.
