About Natalie

I’m the creative director, small business owner, photographer, order packer and of course, jewellery maker, behind this colourful indie brand! I started my small business in 2015, a year after graduating from my textiles and surface pattern design degree.

My main focus has always been mood-lifting colour, bold design, and to create products that will be cherished and adored! I love a creative challenge and over the years I’ve designed tea towels, mugs, greetings cards, art prints, soaps, cushions, and handbags. In the summer of 2019 I had a wild idea to design and produce my first ever jewellery collection and its now become what I’m best known for! I’m so proud to say my jewellery is now stocked in gorgeous boutiques and indie shops in the US, Australia, New Zealand, Europe and UK.

If you’re looking for colourful unique gifts or treats for yourself with an extra dose of glitter, you’ve come to the right place!

How your acrylic jewellery is made

As an independent jewellery designer, I never design anything based on one-season trends - all of my British made acrylic jewellery is designed to last and be worn year after year. I want to create your favourite jewellery that you always come back to.

When planning my acrylic jewellery designs I’m always very careful to have as little waste as possible, and I do my best to source the most fun and unusual glitters and colours for my acrylic jewellery.

My designs are sent to my trusted laser-cutter, and then sent back to me to lovingly hand assemble in-house, on the south coast of England.

Recyclable Packaging

All of my packaging is 100% recyclable, which includes kraft jewellery boxes, the backing cards I use to display my jewellery, and my kraft postal boxes.

Designed to last

I design my jewellery to be adored for years and years to come and not just for one season.

Recycling Offcuts

I'm very conscious about any waste acrylic left over from laser cutting my designs so I carefully place my pattern pieces as close together as possible for the least amount of waste leftover and also recycle all acrylic offcuts.

Studio playlist

As well as bold bright colours being a massive mood lifter, I think music is such a powerful energy booster too and I'm always listening to something while I work. If you want to hear what I'm currently listening to while I make my jewellery in my studio, check out my monthly playlists! I have a very eclectic taste and basically like ALL styles of music (as long as it's good!). You can check out my studio playlists on Spotify!
