Mockinghorse Designer Feature:

About Mockinghorse:

I love creative and clever designs, especially in the form of something wearable. To me it’s an outlet of self-expression. In 2008 I decided to make the kind of accessories I wanted to wear but couldn’t find in stores. After promoting the business in stalls and markets around London, Mockinghorse launched officially in January 2010 and I’ve been delighted to discover that 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.


Often it is everyday things which offer the most intriguing and interesting shapes. I like to have fun with that by creating designs based on silhouettes. I take most inspiration from things I personally find great joy in – such as nature, travel, tea, and literature. Every day there is inspiration for more ideas!

Best Sellers:

Our signature piece is the London Skyline necklace. This is a favourite with most people because it’s original, fun, and 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. (These are now available from The Make Lounge craft school shop in north London!)

We Make Christmas:

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.

There will be something for almost everybody, and each item comes in its own individual box, and we will also be offering free Christmas gift wrapping!

Lok Ming Fung Designer Feature:


Lok Ming Fung is a ceramic designer maker who has always been fascinated and intrigued by texture.
A British born Chinese, she is constantly discovering and inspired by both cultures she grew up with as well as in other cultures. She also finds inspiration from Mother Nature and loves trawling through charity shops finding nostalgic items.

‘Oohhh…’ is a collection of boxes that was inspired by the Japanese Inro boxes and Russian dolls. With the elements of ‘hiding/wrapping’, enclose, open and surprise, all these elements contribute to the enjoyment of the revealing.

Best Sellers:

The ‘Oohhh...’ White with green box and the colourful jewellery are my best sellers. The decorations are hand applied making each piece unique and different!

We Make Christmas:

Buyers will find ceramic boxes and jewellery at We Make and the new range of porcelain jewellery.

Price ranges from as little as £12 to £150.

Isamo Crochet Designer Feature:

About Isamo Crochet:

I am maker and designer of wearable crochet items, I learnt to knit and crochet from my grandmother and as well she planted in me the love to flowers. Garden, flowers, butterflies appear in my creations very often and I think that they are what keeps me working on new pieces with fresh mind all the time…


I love vintage pieces of lace, especially the very fine work, when I see them I try to think how this pattern would work in totally different design and fibre…

Best Sellers:

Very fine crochet earrings with vintage doily pattern

Short fingerless mittens with a flower, button or a bow

Lacy shawls made of very soft wool

We Make Christmas:

I have a little bit more of crocheted jewellery, something really new and exciting, but you can expect to find my usual items like slippers, mittens, shawls and berets
