Icy SedgwickI’m Icy, and I’m the designer behind Icy Handmade. I started Icy Handmade in 2013 after I became frustrated that I couldn’t find the kinds of accessories that I wanted in mainstream stores. When others commented on the pieces I wore, I decided to begin selling one-off, handmade originals through Etsy.

Every store you encounter will promote the fact that their work is handmade, and everything is unique, so why should you buy from me?

Well you’re not just buying a handmade, one-off item. You’re also buying the result of a love of crafting, an interest in different materials, a slice of local design, and the chance to support an independent trader instead of a chain. If you commission me to make you something, you’re also getting what you actually want, instead of the compromise that sometimes happen when you stay on the high street.

I’m also conscious of the rising costs of shopping online, and supply all jewellery purchases in organza gift bags, wrapped in tissue paper, to keep down the cost of shipping. Knitwear comes wrapped in tissue paper.
