I’ve always loved collecting random, interesting objects, and Pipnstuff is the result of combining personally sourced vintage and retro items to create bespoke treasures. I use found, recycled and thrifted beads, buttons, and shiny things to create items to intrigue and delight. I love the romantic idea of old, unwanted objects finding new life in today’s modern world.
I find inspiration everywhere from spring blossom in the countryside, to golden autumn leaves, to old-fashioned board games, well loved literature, afternoon tea with friends, mum’s old button box, vintage china, classic typefaces and walks on the beach.
My signature piece is the Queen Alice Through the Looking-Glass Necklace. A quirkily gorgeous double-sided pendant, it pictures Alice on one side, while the other shows text from the book written in reverse. The ‘looking glass’ is a vintage optical lens from a local ex-optician.
My 1950s vintage wooden Scrabble letter tile magnets, originally manufactured by J. W Spear & Sons Ltd, Enfield, England, are also incredibly popular gifts - especially for those personalised messages!
We Make Christmas:
There will be a full range of Pipnstuff’s exclusive and most popular jewellery and accessories: earrings, necklaces, bracelets, hairclips, rings, brooches, cufflinks and magnets.
Plus, I’ve recently discovered some really special treasures, which I’ll be making into unique goodies for the We Make Christmas fair.
