Perfect for Mother's Day gifts
Squinty Jewellery is available to purchase right here in the West End, but for one week only! From Monday 28th March until Friday 1st April it's on sale in the Life Craft, 691 Great Western Road. The shop is open roughly 10-6 each day.
"Squinty Jewellery is made by recycling old broken jewellery, Lego pieces, and anything quirky that catches my eye! It's all hand made here in Glasgow, in the shadow of the Squinty Bridge."
Squinty Jewellery is made from broken and abandoned things such as old necklaces, bits of electrical items, shells, and various bits and bobs found in charity shops and fairs. Pieces are carefully selected then lovingly recycled into something new, hence the name, 'Squinty'.
Everything is handmade and not quite perfect, no two items are alike, although there may be a few that look similar. If you're tired of buying 'mass market' jewellery from high street stores, and would like an original and unique piece, then Squinty Jewellery should be right up your street.
A variety of materials is used to create Squinty earrings, necklaces and bracelets including: metal, glass, plastic, ceramic, wood, chain, bone, mother of pearl and brass. Items cost from as little as £3 upwards.
Everything possible is reused, except for the findings. These are the only parts not recycled and are all brand new for hygiene reasons. They are low nickel so should not cause allergies but there is no guarantee. Should you specifically require stainless steel or sterling silver findings these can be provided at a small additional cost, usually £1 per item.
Squinty Jewellery is based in Glasgow, and the name and logo design are influenced by the 'Squinty Bridge', the locals name for the Clyde Arc Bridge. We welcome queries or orders from anywhere worldwide.
Commissions are more than welcome just contact Squinty Jewellery and we will be delighted to hear about your ideas.
