We love dinky-winky charms and creating a series of little glossy golden necklets to layer up with our trinket pendants and vintage chains has been dreamy.

This is our mini homage to the girl of our dreams Debbie Harry! Whatever the season, whatever the weather, Blondie is one of our ultimate pin up gals and you'll probably find us bopping away to her album whilst we're making our Call Me necklaces! The ultra slim line glossy golden charm dangles perfectly from a skinny diamond trace necklet.
Back by popular demand, for the third season running we have re-vamped our best selling Fang necklace. Long term fans will probably still cherish their red glitter enamel version from our first EVER collection Go Go Girls From Outerspace. A few lucky fans who made it to the Clothes Show Live last year or who were very speedy on the website will have snapped up the large red mirrored acrylic version. So for one LAST time here we have a dinky glossy golden version with cut out fang section. It's a dead pretty everyday kinda pendant and again it's only produced in a limited quantity...
We're a studio full of bicycle lovin' gals and Bicyclette is the bike of our dreams with a pennant flag blowing in the wind. Forget the rain and remember sunshine bicycle rides along country lanes. Ding! Ding!
Living in London and loving Ponies isn't a match made in heaven which probably explains why we create so much horse jewellery! Pony is a sweet lil' glossy golden charm and your cute confidante in life and love.
Simple, sweet and the perfect pendant for lovers and romantics. Heart to Heart is a delicate charm which dangles from a skinny diamond trace necklet which winks in the light.
This little Snowflake charm necklace is for all of us who are forever dreaming of a white Christmas! But if frolicking in the frosty white snow isn't on your winter wishlist we still think you're going to fall head over heels for this sweet lil' snowflake necklet.
Our new collection features an adorable selection of trinket brooches and romantic necklaces which are ready to adorn vintage cardigans with messy plaits and floral frocks with rosy cheeks!

Peckham-based creative collective Garudio-Studiage are hosting the first of our Christmas events which takes place in the eerily wonderful setting of the Crypt of St Pancras church. Come and visit us along with an ace selection of London's indie design talent to get some Christmas shopping done away from the hustle and bustle of central London. We'll be taking along all our best selling handmade jewels including the collections Midnight Forest, Gabba Gabba Miaow, Tutti Frutti, Mini necklaces, Maxi brooches, a huge hamper of rockin' sale goodies and new jewellery that hasn't even been launched yet...oooh.
It's free entrance with mulled wine, cake, lots of festive jolliness plus you can see the latest Garudio-Studiage group exhibition called "Fantasy Zoo" where 30 artists and designers have received an imaginary budget of £10,000 to ‘buy’ animals anywhere they can find them and create the zoo of their dreams in any way they choose.
