An eclectic mix of jewellery, handmade by me in a windswept Yorkshire village. If you’re looking for boho, shiny, fun, quirky or upcycled jewellery you’ve come to the right place, if I like it, I make it !! Each piece is handmade and beautifully wrapped, lots of lovely gift ideas.
The Been Sacks bags are all made from a recycled coffee sacks. The bags come in various shapes and sizes and no two bags are the same. Often the size and type of the bag is designed around the details on the coffee sack. Other materials are then added to provide decoration, lining and straps. As much of the material as possible comes from recycled items like quilts, curtains and old clothing. The materials include cotton, linen, wool, leather and sometimes synthetics. Anything that would otherwise be turned to rags, I try and use!.
I’m an environmental textile artist. Decorative and functional textile art giving new life to upcycled or vintage fabric instead of going in the landfill.
