I've turned into a mad stamp collector. When I was little I collected
stamps, my mother would bring home European stamps collected from a lady
who worked at the hospital. I would carefully soak them to remove them
from the envelopes. I also remember buying the small mixed packages from
the newsagency. I still have my stamp album…somewhere. At the beginning
of the last year, I found an amazing old stamp album dating to the
1950’s which sparked my interest once again. The idea of using stamps to
create jewellery was born.
I have a variety of jewellery on offer from pendants, earrings,
brooches, cufflinks, key rings and more. Each setting is chosen to best
suit the qualities of the vintage stamp. Most stamps have been in
circulation and have their own unique postal markings, which adds to the
charm and captures a little slice of history.
My handmade items are original one of a kind pieces, and each element is
chosen for its colour, patina, shape and unique character.
