I’m writing this post to introduce you to my new business, shy.thistle.
What does shy.thistle sell?
I hand make chokers using both upcycled and new jewellery. Many of the pendants that I use have been bought from second-hand markets, charity shops or they’ve been given to me by family and friends. This means that majority of my handmade chokers are totally unique and also one-offs!
I also sell rings, which are not handmade by me, but they’re very cute!
What’s the theme of shy.thistle?
I wanted shy.thistle to be botanical themed, so all of my chokers are named after flowers, plants and trees. To make sure that the botanical theme went further than just the name of the items, I went to a charity shop and bought several botanical books, pulled them apart (sorry book lovers), and made cute little flower bags to send out the chokers in when they’re bought.
Where can you buy shy.thistle products?
I’m currently selling all of my chokers on Depop. If you’d like to see what I have available for sale, click here! If you have Depop, be sure to follow my shop. I also want to start selling on Etsy soon too, as I know that it’s a great platform for selling handmade items.
What is the price range of shy.thistle?
I wanted shy.thistle to be quite affordable, so all of my chokers range from £2.50 – £6.50. The price of the chokers reflect the amount of time I spent creating the piece, and also the components used.
What’s the future of shy.thistle?
Eventually, I would love to have a proper website for shy.thistle. I only sell handmade chokers and rings at the moment, so I would also love to expand my stock and design, create and sell a range of accessories and even clothing!
