“Artisan and gemstone jewellery and accessories, handcrafted in South Shields”

Shop Announcement:

In light of the current coronavirus outbreak and strict isolation measures here in the UK, I've taken advice and decided to keep the Little Magpye Folksy shop open only for UK orders for now, but I'm monitoring the situation daily and will cease shipping if the advice changes.

Please be aware that delivery of your order may be delayed due to strains on the postal service; I'm also only shipping once per week and only listing items that will fit in an envelope or PIP box so that they can be popped in the post box, to limit unnecessary travel and contact.

I've temporarily increased stated shipping times to 14 days on all listings but aim to do a run to the post box every Friday.

** If you'd like to purchase something but would prefer me to wait 3+ weeks for the situation to hopefully improve before sending, please just let me know. **

About Little Magpye

Little Magpye

Artisan and gemstone jewellery and accessories, handcrafted in South Shields by Marie Gallagher

Hello and welcome to Little Magpye's Folksy shop; I'm Marie, sometimes also known as Mrs Magpye. I love to design and make unique jewellery pieces for those who like something a little bit different. I work mainly with gemstones and Artisan made components from makers located all over the world, but with a focus on fellow UK makers. I also design and make costume jewellery for everyday wear.

All of my pieces are designed and created in my home studio here in the seaside town of South Shields on the beautiful North East coast of England, where I live with my husband, daughter and nutty Labrador. Something of a beadaholic, I started making jewellery when I was still at school and couldn't afford the jewellery I liked.

I've been making and selling jewellery for around 28 years now, whilst also running a web design company since 2001. After a period of immense change in my personal life, I left my directorship in the corporate world behind to go back to freelance web design, and took the opportunity to turn my lifelong passion for jewellery making into a fully-fledged business - thus, Little Magpye was born. Not content with just two jobs, I’m also a writer.

I adore and am inspired by my family, books, poetry, nature, music, history, textures, storms, and a plethora of other delights. My pieces are as different as my customers. I try to cater for all budgets and I'm available for custom orders, so if you have an idea for a bespoke item in mind, please don’t hesitate to get in touch, I’d love to help you bring that idea to reality if I can!

More than a few people over the years have suggested that I've misspelt ‘magpie’. It’s not a typo, it’s deliberate. The business name Little Magpye came about after hours of pouring over potential names and putting random things about me together – it’s a combination of my initials, MAG, and the thing I spent most of my spare cash on at that time, my daughter’s horse, Pye. It seemed the obvious choice, magpies like shiny things after all! And it’s quirky, just like me. Pye is now 26 and happily retired, but it would feel wrong to change the spelling now!
