Postcards

I use original old postcards in my work, dating from around 100 years ago. They vary in colour from off white card to brown with the occssional blue or green. The handwriting is always unique in character and very intriguing, and that too ranges in colour from blue to black and sepia inks. If you are ordering something that includes postcards let me know what you prefer and I can email you a selection that I have available for you to choose from.

Stamps

The stamps I use in my work are single colour printed old stamps and they come in reds, oranges, yellows, pinks, mauves, purples, blues, greens, grey and browns. If you are ordering something which you would like stamps to feature in, let me know the colours you like and I can email you samples of available stamps for you to choose from.

Maps

The maps I use are old linen backed maps which have a beautiful graphic quality and depth of colour. I am often asked for specific areas in the UK to include in a gift that is significant to the receiver, and I either have the area, or I can source them. If you would like to order a piece of jewellery with a fragment of map in it, just let me know and I can see if I can find it for you, or perhaps you just want an urban area, costal or countryside, just let me know.

Photographs

I occassionally use old black and white photographs of people in my work. They are intriguing and a beautiful reference to our past, perhaps forgotten past. You may want to see what I have available for an order, or you may have a photograph of a loved one that you would like to archive into a piece of jewellery and keep with you. Just let me know what you would like and we can work on something perfect for you.
