Artisan Journals, Jewellery, and Accessories, by Robyn & Julie
Our designs are unique and generally one of a kind, and can be customised to suit our individual clients.
Hi, my name is Robyn, and I’ve been doing metalwork since 2009, and conscripted my daughter-in-law, Julie into the business a few years ago.
We moved into Mixed Media a couple of years ago, and two years ago we added our Artisan fully hand made and bound journals to our range.
Diversion is good, right?
A little history here….
We use mainly sheet-metal copper and wire, mixed with lots of interesting other finds. Julie and I both love Steampunk style, mixed up with found objects such as vintage pocket-watch and wrist-watch parts, vintage hardware, keys, lock-plates etc. In fact, just about anything can find its’ way into our pieces. Our take on Steampunk is more Industrial than Victorian, with a little Goth thrown in for good measure.We often incorporate this steampunk influence into our whimsical designs
We have made a conscious decision to only use cold connections as a method of construction. No solder, no glue, just lots and lots of rivets and screws. This enables us to incorporate just about any materials in our pieces.
We use traditional metalwork and jewellery making methods and tools, no laser cutting for us. If you visit us at Eynesbury Market you will often see me working at my portable workbench.
We make small plates, bowls, desk accessories, and book plates, all using copper and brass sheet.
We also make a range of Mixed Media items. This line features notebooks, journals, art journals, canvases and wall hangings, also a bit industrial and a bit Steampunkery.
We have added hand made books and journals to our repertoire, and now feature lots of artisan journals and notebooks. These are completely hand made with lots of tea/coffee dyed paper, Vintage and Steampunk images, and include re-cycled/up-cycled items such as Vintage post cards, file folios etc.
Our journals and notebooks can be personalized to suit. Over the last few months we have made customised Wedding Planners and Guest Books, as well as themed journals to suit various clients.
