I am a writer and jewelry designer and maker based in North Yorkshire. I offer imaginative handmade gothic, witchy, rockabilly and Victorian jewelry inspired by dark fairy tales and folklore, Hammer Horror films, gothic novels and pagan ritual. I also lovingly refurbish antique and vintage finds that suggest their own dark histories. All handmades are created one at a time in my little Victorian house in a cobblestone street in the shadow of the medieval walls of the city of York, where I’m serenaded by the hum of trains coming and going from the rail station and the howl of the Barghest prowling the snickleways of the ancient city.

Though I’m now a Yorkshire lass, I came of age on the West Coast of the U.S. and that sunny nostalgia and the cultural hybridity of Cali still brighten my imagination.
Everything I sell is assembled, knit or gathered with love. I believe in personal adornment as a a kind of talismanic language, and I work with this in mind.

When I’m not making jewelry or writing, I brew beer and dance with the tribal fusion bellydance troupe Tanzhexen.
