I keep meaning to do posts about each of the artists who supply me with stuff for the shop – however those designers keep changing and growing, so here instead is a post introducing you to my current stockists!
The Monster Project – no site at the minute!
This project provides us with handsewn felt monsters, either as soft toys or on cards, hairbands, hats, scarves, purses and other accessories.
Ryan was featured as one of the top 30 under-30s in Leeds this year, and we’re very proud to have his funny little creatures on board.
Louise is a multi-media artist who provides the shop with her handmade books, handsewn animal shaped cushions and origami jewellery.
Based in Shrewsbury, Magenta makes soft, textile accessories with a sense of humour.
Jodie makes beautiful printed shrink plastic jewellery from her own illustrations. Each one is slightly different from the others due to the process of shrinking each one by hand.
Elly is another of the ‘Top 30 Under-30s’ in Leeds; a fashion blogger, copyrighter, local eccentric but she also makes jewellery.
Beautiful resin creations, from the artist who actually DID write the book on making resin jewellery!
We stock some badges made by the terrific circus themed, Sheffield-based brand, and hope to be stocking more of their wares very soon!
Repurposed Barbie accessories made into jewellery – most popular are her shoes made into dangly earrings.
Laser cut wooden dinosaur necklaces, with etched skeletons, as well as wooden rings and brooches – and more recently some neon coloured regular perspex necklaces – make up the collection available in our shop from Brighton based Designosaur.
Handmade by the sea in Brighton, by Hannah – best sellers are her bottlecap badges and sugar skull necklaces.
Brand new to our shop, and taking everyone by storm! Bling, heavy enamelled accessories, which were brought to my attention after their Saatchi & Saatchi collaboration.
We stock only mobile phone cases at the moment, but this company made our splash stickers which everyone asks about!
I’ve known Sarah for many years, but for some reason I didn’t know how talented she was at making things out of wool and beads until recently
As well as jewellery and wearables, I also stock greeting cards – but they have to be of a certain type! Either quirky illustrations, or downright rude cards.
Infamous Norfolk based artist well know for her dog and cat illustrations – we stock bags, badges, cards and zines.
Pirate and tattoo related jewellery – quirky & indie, with a twist.
Handmade fimo sweetie jewellery – including the infamous dolly mixture and miniature liquorice allsorts bracelets and necklaces!
Huddersfield based graphic designer Kim creates amazing laser cut jewellery with her illustrations, as well as printing moleskine notebooks. We’re very lucky to have her on board!
We’ve just started to stock these fine illustrated greeting cards, and I can’t wait to display them!
