Unexpected Boutique: Quirky and Unusual Handmade Jewellery

Welcome to the Unexpected Boutique, an independent collection of quirky handmade jewellery. Here you will find necklaces, bracelets and earrings made with unusual and unexpected materials, as well as upcycled jewellery, tea-themed jewellery for tea-lovers, jigsaw puzzle piece jewellery, button jewellery and anything else from my eclectic collection of oddities that falls into my hands and gets turned into something wearable.


The latest new designs are: Riverbed Necklace, Dragon's Hoard Necklace, Beachcomber Necklace, and a pale-coloured version of the washi jigsaw puzzle necklace. These unusual necklaces are all one-of-a-kind items, made from upcycled bits and pieces from my collection of old and broken jewellery and leftover beads and chain.

Sale now on! Visit the sale page for some reduced price and end of line jewellery and accessories.

More additions to my collection of upcycled handmade jewellery are long, elegant mixed media drop earrings. So far the range includes unusual drop earrings made with green and gold safety pins, beaded pastel safety pins, some delicate vintage button and peacock pearl creations and some with copper and creamy buttons. I think my favourites are the ones which use everything - safety pins, buttons, pearls and three different kinds of upcycled chain, all on one pair of earrings.


For the tea-lover in your life (and who doesn't have one of those?*) the Unexpected Boutique presents a collection of quirky handcrafted tea-themed charm necklaces and bracelets - check them out over in the teapot jewellery collection.

*If you actually don't have a tea-lover in your life, and feel you are missing out, buying and wearing a piece of teapot jewellery yourself will no doubt attract some, and remedy the situation immediately.
