Sleepless Storyteller

Looking for a unique and handmade piece of watch part or computer part jewellery? Geeky, neo-victorian, science-fiction, contraption-inspired, funky jewellery brought to you by a restless British Columbia writer. Designs for eclectic people with a sense of adventure in their style.

Each especially odd piece is made by recycling gears, gadgets, home computers and electronic components into trashion jewellery and accessories.

All my creations are based on my love of steampunk, cyberpunk, geek-chic, trashion, kitsch, and Victorian style. I upcycle vintage jewellery whenever possible and reuse chain, findings, and stones.

Please contact me if, for any reason, you are unhappy with your purchase. As an online customer myself, I am whole-heartedly committed to making sure you have a positive experience with my store.

Please keep in mind that my jewellery is handmade and not designed to withstand 24-hr wear. I recommend removing all my jewellery and accessories before washing, showering, while sleeping, during sports, and/or any other rough activities.

A note on my brooches: these pieces are not designed for outerwear. By that, I'm suggesting they be worn on a blazer or sweater, rather than a coat or jacket.

Refunds and exchanges will be handled on a case-by-case basis, but as above, please contact me if you have any concerns and I will definitely work with you to resolve them.

I ship most items in boxes, inside a bubble wrap mailer. I use Canada Post and ship from Vancouver, BC.

If you're in Canada, this will be Regular Parcel service.

If you're in the US or overseas, this will be Small Packet USA and International service.

A note on RUSH shipping. At the moment, I'm unable to offer this service. Due to working a day job, I'm only able to review and respond to orders during the evenings, shipping after the next work day.

If you have a deadline like a birthday, anniversary, graduation or other special event, send me a message and I'll do my best to accommodate you. In that case, I can either adjust my shipping charge for express or let you know if I don't think it's realistic.
