I am not a machine.
Each one of my pieces is handmade by me. Due to the wonderful nature of hand crafted items they cannot all be the exact same, unlike with machine woven textiles or machine fabricated jewellery.
This means that sometimes the picture seen on my website will not look precisely the same as the piece you receive in the mail. Most of the customers who buy pieces from me treasure this unique feature and enjoy the idea of owning a special item carefully produced by a craftsperson.
Please keep this in mind when purchasing an item from me.
