Magic Pumpkins & Faery Dust

As a textile artist I design and manufacture individual handcrafted faery tale inspired children's clothes, costumes and toys as well as various textile accessories like hair clips, slip cover notebooks and seasonal decorations.

All my designs are made using vintage and re-loved fabrics, off cuts as well as organic fair trade materials.

My wish is to bring some of my childhood's heavenly simplicity back to our children and to introduce them to toys made from natural materials, using simple designs to feed their imagination and spark their creativity

Grandeur Jewellery

At Grandeur Jewellery we sell beautiful handmade and up-cycled jewellery. Each piece is lovingly made with a high attention to detail. 
All out pieces are affordable as at Grandeur Jewellery we believe that just because something is beautiful shouldn't mean you have to pay an exceptional amount for it. 
We are also happy to have enquirers about custom orders.
We hope you like what you see. Any questions just ask!

Cornerful of Crafts

Cornerfulofcrafts grew out of my love for crafting. My craft selling journey began with card-making, which then grew into making unique stationery for weddings, mostly with a Scottish/Celtic twist.

After I had caught the crochet bug I had requests for the cute little kiddie hats you see in my store. I made them for my own children first and then people started stopping me in the street to ask where I got them from - can't beat a bit of free advertising!

My newest products are the glass cabochon pendants, cuff links, rings and bracelets, which I simply adore! But don't just take my word for it, come on over for a visit.

Loelle Jewelry

“ off hand made pieces from Holland.....”

Our philosophy is to bring the energy of the Kabbalah and the power of the protecting eye into our premium modern jewelry, representing a mixture of beauty and soul. We are passionate about new ways of design, premium craftsmanship and jewelry.

Aingeal Designs

Aingeal Designs creates affordable handcrafted jewellery and gifts. We were born in 2010 and have been happily crafting ever since, striving to create unique pieces which are in everyone's price bracket.

Berry Nice Cushions

I design and hand make personalised applique cushions, fabric hearts with hand embroidered names and applique name banners.
I make fabric hearts for both decoration and special occasions.

For Keeps NI

I love the metal that is Silver. Silver represents intuition, imagination and moon energy. Silver is also associated with mystery, femininity and female power. 
After several years as a clothing designer I decided I didn't want to spend any more time in that industry and did a course in jewellery and metal work. Now I spend my days designing pretty pieces to enhance the wearer of my bespoke jewels. 
I use a combination of pure silver and Swarovski® crystals to create jewels inspired by everything beautiful nature has to offer, from the moon and the stars in the night sky to a single dew drop on the freshest of mornings. 
Want to hold onto a piece of time forever? I also make Silver Fingerprints. These are unique pieces of wearable art designed to incorporate a date or the fingerprint of your loved one in pure silver forever. The enchanting designs, each one individual and personal, combine Swarovski® crystals and pearls for a delight of magical sparkle and charm.
My delicate silver jewels make original presents for any occasion or just a lovely, thoughtful gift with special meaning for years to come.

Bath Bomb Creations

Bath Bomb Creations is a family-run business that handmakes bath luxuries, Traditional Soap, Bath Melts, Bath Creamers and Bubble Bars.

None of our products or ingredients are tested on animals. And we pride ourselves on excellent customer service.

Our range includes miniatures from 9g which are perfect as Wedding Favours, then from 26g up to 533g Mega Blaster Bath Bomb, ideal at Craft Fayres.

Auli'i Beads

I've always loved costume jewellery and a colleague once asked just how many bracelets etc I had as I always seemed to be colour co-ordinated. My first foray into the world of beading was when a favourite bracelet broke and I bought some beading elastic and decided to repair it myself. When I just couldn't find a bracelet to go with an outfit I had I decided to get some beads and make my own so I could get exactly what I wanted. Then to keep myself occupied during a period of illness I found myself making beaded jewellery and soon became totally addicted!

Auli'i was created through my new found love of beading and a suggestion that I should try selling my items, so here I am!

In addition to seed beads, I also love to use Swarovski crystals, Czech fire-polished beads, semi-precious stones and much much more to add extra detail and sparkle to my work. My favourite colours to work with are purple and teal/blue, so they are often to be found in my beadwork.

Dizzy Miss James

Hi I am Miss James I’m a lover of tea, anything vintage, illustration, craft 80’s movies, a bit of a geek and well I am dizzy, literally. Unfortunately a few years back I caught an inner ear infection that caused me to develop a Balance Disorder. I have spent the last few years in a rehabilitation program learning to do all the little things that I previously took for granted.

The thing that has kept me from going insane during my recovery is creativity. I have turned my spare room into a studio space where I can surround myself with the things that make me happy colour, texture, fabrics and threads. I love to draw, paint, craft and generally get messy! I aim to use recycled materials where possible turning once unloved items into something new, made with love and a smile. Please take a look at my little shop and see my latest makes and creations.
