Hello, Im Faye and I am a jewellery designer and maker with a degree in Graphic Art & Illustration. In the past I have run galleries, sold my own paintings and supplied my art work to films and TV productions.
I started Stuff Made From Things ten years ago when my children were very small, making bags and jewellery from recycled fabric. Then, after taking a jewellery course I started making earrings from recycled copper pipes.
Over the years as my business, and my life, has grown, my designs have evolved in to pieces that I like to think of as talisman and charms for modern women. Using positive affirmations, ancient and modern symbolism and semi precious stones I create pieces that can be imbued with protective, calming or emboldening properties. Or they can just be worn because they're gorgeous!
My art and design background has shaped the look of my jewellery. I love combining texture, pattern and shape and am constantly playing with ideas. I have always been interested with everything connected with Mexico and take inspiration from mysticism, tribal designs and folk art.
I like to make limited editions and one-off pieces so if you see something you like you should probably snap it up!
