I have always loved design, and two years ago I decided to make the kind of accessories I wanted to wear but couldn’t find in stores. In early 2010 Mockinghorse officially launched and it’s fantastic to see that other people love the designs as much as I do. A key part of the plan was also to create a business that wouldn’t have a heavy impact on the environment, so Mockinghorse uses recyclable packaging, recyclable acrylic, and we support local businesses by sourcing materials within the UK.
The world is full of interesting shapes, often in the most simple things, and I like to have fun with that by creating designs based on silhouettes. I admit, I take inspiration from things I personally find joy in – such as nature, travel, tea, books and wildlife. Of course, there is plenty more to come - every day there is inspiration for more ideas!
Our signature piece is the London Skyline necklace. This is a favourite with most people because it’s effectively a wearable postcard.
Our newest best seller is our scissors necklace. There are a lot of creative people out there who make things with their own hands, and for them, this necklace seems to express that creativity.
We Make Summer Fair:
We will be selling our entire range of acrylic necklaces and brooches, in our usual variety of colours.
We will also have a few limited-edition guitar brooches and necklaces, which are not available from our online store!
