EllyMental Jewellery....

If you have visited Cadgwith Cove in Cornwall before, you'll know how just wonderful The Crow's Nest gallery is. It is the kind of place you could easily take everything home with you!
This year I treated myself to a few items but my absolute favourite was a swallow necklace by EllyMental Jewellery. You may remember I posted a picture of the necklace in my Cornwall post a few weeks ago, I have worn it every day since and I have had so many compliments!

I want to start sharing some of my favourite, most inspirational makers and artists on my blog so this new discovery is as good a place as any to start!

Here is a bit about Ellymental, taken from the website....
"EllyMental vintage styled kitsch jewellery is designed and made by Elly who is inspired by designs based on her own fervent interest in kitsch nostalgia and animals (!). She incorporates her designs with found ephemera such as 1950's books, Victorian newspapers and delicate home-made papers. Items are multi-layered and multi-varnished to create a strong and robust end piece. All items are lovingly and meticulously hand crafted."

Swallow necklace, £14.00.

Wolf brooch, £14.00. Thrift Hare Rabbit, £12.00.

Large Lion necklace, £14.00. Literary Book Owl earrings, £13.00.

EllyMental Jewellery can be purchased online through Elly's folksy shop and through the official website. It can also be found in many shops and galleries across the country, a full list of stockists can be found on the website.
