Gillyflower Faire is my online Etsy shop, and I invite you to stop by and look around! There you’ll discover wood jewellery, runes and good luck talismans which I handcraft using reclaimed branches from Muskoka, Ontario, Canada. Working primarily in pine, oak, maple, cedar, juniper and birch, I often add original woodburned motifs, and the designs vary from primitive to refined. All wood items are carefully sanded and finished with natural linseed oil and beeswax.
I also create with metals such as copper, bronze, brass, pewter, aluminum, stainless steel and sterling silver. Simple earrings, pendants, bracelets and rings in clean designs with either rustic or modern finishes allow the beauty of these elemental materials to shine through. I use these same metals to make chainmaille, weaving intricate patterns one ring at a time for unique and strikingly wearable pieces.
At Gillyflower Faire, you’ll also find beaded jewellery featuring semi-precious gemstones and premium quality Japanese seed beads, as well as small leather acccessories such as keychains and multi-use drawstring pouches. All of my pieces are durable and finished with meticulous attention to detail.
Not leaving out the Wee Folk, I offer Faerie Flasks, my line of fairy bottle necklaces and keepsakes. These sealed vials are filled with colourful glass pebbles, shells, moss, sand — nature’s tiny treasures to carry close. Sweet, whimsical and fun!
Every piece that I make has a natural, historical or mystical theme, and many are unisex in style. Custom orders are available. Shipping is from Canada at very reasonable rates.
