About Pirate Treasures Handmade Jewellery
Hello! I'm Jane and Pirate Treasures Jewellery is my collection of designs handmade or put together by myself in Greater London, UK.
I have always loved creating my own unique style; when I was a small girl, my grandmother used to take me to a bead shop and we would thread seed beads onto wire to make bracelets and rings. As a teenager I would customise clothes, adding lace, beads and embellishments.
The idea for Pirate Treasures jewellery began when I designed some pirate themed jewellery for myself, after watching the film "Pirates of the Caribbean". This led to me making jewellery as gifts for friends and family. Pretty soon, requests were coming in for one-off pieces and as word spread I decided to launch Pirate Treasures as a brand with a website in February 2007. Starting with Pirate themes and classic style, it quickly grew to encompass one-off pieces made from vintage beads and charms and quirky Steampunk designs.
I love vintage styles and Steampunk imagery and enjoy putting together designs with a combination of beads and charms. I just like the whole process of starting with a pile of components and finishing with a completed unique design, and if someone else wants to wear it then what more can I ask for?
If you have an idea for a design you would like commissioned, please don't hesitate to send a message via the contact page!
Not content with just making jewellery, The Emporium of Curiosities is my other shop on the handmade and craft online venue Etsy selling my decorated boxes, hand stamped ACEOs, cards, gift tags and "assemblage" jewellery.
Since 2014 a range of my pirate and nautical jewellery is now being stocked at the Hackney Pirates Shop of Adventures, 138 Kingsland Road, London E8 2NS. It's an amazing gift shop and Compass Coffee run cafe which is designed as the interior of a pirate ship - more details on their website http://www.hackneypirates.org/shop-of-adventures/
Also in 2014 I made a couple of designs of berry themed charm bracelets for Strawberry Fox to sell along with their wonderful chocolate and berry gift hampers.

Please note, I use Instagram and Twitter for personal things too so as well as previews of new designs, there will be the odd cake picture, photos taken at gigs and new shoes - it gives you more of an idea of who I am rather than a faceless brand!!
