Stellen has now closed for online orders, and will close in shops in January 2022.
Stellen was based in a beautifully bijou (read: small..) studio a few minutes from the sea in Folkestone, Kent until January 2022. Being situated in the middle of the Creative Quarter was a great setting both for creativity as well as an indication of why sustainability is so important - with the reminder of rising tides and sea plastic just a few steps away.
Inspired by a visit to Elvis & Kresse in 2016, I started making jewellery from T-shirt yarn and vintage beads. Motivated to use materials that would usually be seen as waste, whilst also making the kind of jewellery that I love - the situation was win-win! These were soon joined by jewellery made using tiny vintage model railway figures, giving a second life to previously used items.
In 2018 I started a collaboration with Wyatt and Jack to use off cuts from their recycled bouncy castle, inflatables & deckchair bag production. Creating colourful jewellery and taking them a step closer to zero waste.
All of the jewellery is designed to make you smile by being be easy to wear, playful and fun.
