Increasing Your Awesomeness!

That's my goal! To increase your awesomeness. You're already fab but I like to think that my unique, handmade jewellery will add a little something extra.

Making unique jewellery is my biggest passion and I am always aiming to ensure that my shop continues to provide individuals like yourself with a range of handmade and unique jewellery to reflect who you are.

For years I'd tried to fit into societies little pre made boxes and follow the path that was laid out for me.. but it just didn't gel. I am unique, I am my own person, and I don't want to follow the crowd. I don't think you do either, do you?? That's why I started my quest to make a difference and to provide unique souls with unique jewellery that really reflects who they are, not who they should be.

I'd like to think I put a little of my own personality into my designs and creations but it's only when you wear the items that they really shine.

Without you, my amazing customers and fans, DysfunctionDesigns would not exist, and I love you all for your help and support.

Mens Brown and Red Carved Bone and Clay Tribal Skater Necklace

Thanks for checking out my listing, you rock!!

I created this skater style necklace using handmade clay beads, which I shaped and textured myself. I used a selection of hand carved brown bone beads to achieve an earthy, tribal look.

The necklace is elasticated so should fit most. It sits roughly on the upper chest when worn.

I also created a matching bracelet which you can...

Beaded Clay Bracelet Autumn Tones

Hey there! Thanks for looking at my listing!

I created this autumn themed bracelet using polymer clay. I created the range of coloured beads myself using Fimo clay. I added texture to give the bracelet a natural look and feel. The multi coloured clay beads are combined with smooth red-brown wooden beads to create an earthy style piece that would look in any season!

The colours are very s...

DysfunctionDesigns is branching out!

That's right! I've been selling online for over a year and I've now managed to find a shop that would like to stock my jewellery! A real live shop! How awesome is that! :)

I've been in touch with the owner of Feel The Ride, in Paisley. It's an awesome skate shop (With a ramp!) and they have said they'd be happy to get involved.Within the next week or so, everything will be finalised and the first pieces of Dysfunctiondesigns jewellery will be on show and on sale in this fab shop!

I'm so psyched! I'm hoping it'll be the first of many and over the coming months I'll be in touch with various tattoo studios, skate/surf shops and various other places to see if they'd like to join in! If you know of anywhere that might be interested (around the Renfrewshire/Glasgow area preferably, but further a field will be considered) then just give me a shout!

I will of course be continuing to sell on Etsy and Folksy. Items added frequently, so keep checking back.
I've also decided to cut down on the number of craft fairs I attend as the people who were attending weren't really the people who my jewellery is aimed at, so it's a waste of my time and theirs! However! There has been a cancellation at the fab Ayrshire Arts & Craft fair in Troon on 9th June so I will be once again trading there. I love that fair! Head over if you're in the area..hell,even if you're not - make the trip! It's free and there's tonnes of fab stalls! Plus, it'll be June, so fingers crossed it'll be an awesome sunny day :D
See you there!

P.S Anyone who buys from my Etsy shop today will receive a PERSONALISED voucher code for a whopping 30% off ALL FUTURE ORDERS! - For Life!! I'm just to good to you!! Buy now!

Skate shops and Roller Derby!

I'm so psyched at the moment! I've got a meeting lined up on Saturday with the owner of an awesome skate shop to discuss the possibility of the shop stocking my jewellery! It's so exciting. I've got a lot to do before then, make new jewellery, draw up a contract etc.. but i'm super hyped!!
I will be trying my best to make an awesome impression and let him know that i'm not messing about. I don't half-ass when it comes to my business!

My Etsy shop has been seeing some record views lately! I'm so happy about that although I still don't feel I'm really targeting the right people so I have enquired about placing an ad in the next Glasgow Roller Girls booklet. It's given out free at every game and I'm really hoping that the people who'll be reading it are the people I'm looking for. If you're in the area you should check out a bout or two as the teams are fantastic! I was keen on joining so I started the training a while back but sadly had to give it up due to other commitments and money issues. However, I love what they do and I feel privileged to be featured in their mag!

I don't think i've yet mentioned my new obsession! I've fallen in love with Danielle La Porte and her new book, The Fire Starter Sessions!! It's so amazing. Extremely inspiring and its made such a difference to the way I think and act. I've only read about a third of it so far!! Although, I have downloaded the ebook as well and I'm nearly finished it. There's so many amazing reviews of it, so if you don't believe me go check it out on Amazon! Her site is and you can find tonnes of inspirational articles and videos! Including this daily helping of inspiration :

Its so awesome! I watch it most mornings and it really sets me up for the day ahead. She is so inspiring and thought provoking. It's not some lame, airy fairy self help nonsense. It's extremely down to earth and all about realising what you want and getting off your backside to go make it happen! I could talk about her and the book for hours but i'll stop there :p 
Till next time.

It is a one of a kind piece and will definitely get you noticed!

An ideal item for lovers of both hippy and tribal wear

There is a matching necklace and bracelet set available in my shop...
