Sparkly Bits Jewels
Sparkly Bits Jewels are all handmade pieces, and include haircombs, necklaces, earrings, bracelets, brooches, hairpins and clips. They are available exclusively through my on-line shop, where you are able to make a quick and easy instant purchase. I also welcome custom orders to suit your specific needs.
My range features heavily on vintage style work. I love to use components with a vintage feel, especially clusters of crystals, and floral or filigree brass pieces. My materials include both new, and vintage components which I source from all around the world. I use a lot of Swarovski crystals, pearls and beads in my work, and they are a favourite, however I find there are far too many beautiful beads and pieces in the world to exclusively use Swarovski. I have a particular fondness for asymmetrical designs, and you will see this throughout my range. I consider myself to be a true craftsperson.....my designs start out as raw brass flowers, filigrees, leaves, scrolls etc, which I solder together to create intricate designs. Most are sent off to be professionally electro-plated in one of several real gold or silver plate finishes, but some I prefer to leave as natural raw brass. They are finally hand set with sparkling Swarovski Crystals or vintage jewels and pearls.
