The Spotty Zebra - Handmade one of a kind pieces of statement jewellery inspired by rockabilly and modern pinup styles. Bespoke design service available - get in contact to have an item created especially for you.
My name is Lizzy and I am The Spotty Zebra! I started out with The Spotty Zebra selling vintage clothing and my own handmade jewellery online in 2010. The name - as I am sure you are pondering over it - came from hours of brain storming: the aim was to find a name that was a bit quirky but would symbolise something you would not expect to find, because you will not find my designs anywhere else.
I have now progressed to specialise in creating one off pieces of jewellery and other accessories using mostly buttons, beads and wire, but also fabric, crochet and anything else pretty that I find. With a love of vintage fashion and a keen interest in recycling, I regularly use vintage and reclaimed items in my work.
I take a lot of inspiration from various eras, but particularly the 1950s and 60s, More current inspiration comes from modern pinup, rockabilly and burlesque scenes. The biggest motivation with my creations though is colour. My imagintation really takes off when trying out different and unusual combinations!
All Spotty Zebra designs are handmade by myself in my workshop based at home in Aberaeron, West Wales.
Currently, you can ony buy my designs online through this website or Etsy; or at a small selection of craft and gift fairs I attend locally. I am working on a new online shop with Amazon and hope to have this open for Christmas 2017. I am also currently looking at new 'bricks & mortar' shops to stock my work, so if you are interested in stocking my work in your shop, please get in contact to discuss.
