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.

Sustainability

Plastic-free Packaging

Orders are packed in 100% recyclable cardboard boxes and envelopes and sealed with recyclable kraft paper tape.

I use FSC Certified, acid free tissue paper to protect products, never bubble wrap.

Reuse and Recycle

I try to repurpose packaging from my supplier deliveries to reuse for my wholesale order packaging. And I encourage my suppliers to go plastic free where possible.

Slow Fashion

My jewellery designs are created to be colourful and gorgeous and worn for years to come, not just for one season.

Studio playlist

I absolutely love listening to music when I'm making jewellery and usually have a party playlist on when I'm packing orders. If you want to check out what I'm listening to, each month I create a new playlist. You can listen to what I'm currently loving on my Spotify playlists!
