About Us

Penny Darlings is run by Alison Atkin, specialising in (but not limited to) anatomical and historical themed jewellery - with a particular focus on bespoke designs.

All pieces are drawn freehand and each piece created is unique.

This shop features pre-made designs, which can be purchased immediately. If you’re interested in a bespoke design please get in touch (or visit this page to see examples of past commissions).

All jewellery is made of light-weight shrinkable plastic and finished with silver-plated findings or coloured cotton thread with silver-plated findings. Every piece is sealed against wear with a matt varnish and any fragile designs are reinforced.

When not making scientifically accurate (or not-accurate but still adorable) jewellery Alison is an osteoarchaeologist who researches medieval plague victims. Neat, huh? You can follow Alison on Twitter here: @alisonatkin
