Introducing my ‘Self Made’ Skull Jewellery

Hi! Welcome to my new blog. I’m so pleased you’ve popped by! Pull up a comfy chair and let me tell you more about myself so you get to know the name and face behind the skull jewellery. My name is Sam Self and I am the creator of “Self Made”.  I live in Warrington with my husband. I am a Southerner by birth but love it up North . Please don’t ask me to choose between them though! 

 

For a while now I knew I wanted to have a business called “Self Made” which incorporated my love of making things and my surname. My skull jewellery started because I just couldn’t find the sort of items I wanted to buy in shops. I would regularly visit a fashion website and type “skull” into the search engine and often see “no search results” pop up. So frustrating!

 

Periodically , skulls appear in fashion again so as you can imagine I collect lots of skull jewellery during those times! I have loved skulls since I was 18 when I started listening to metal music. All my outfits regularly have skulls on them and when I did my Masters my friends started associating skulls with me and it stuck!

 

I decided if I couldn’t find the skull jewellery I wanted I’d make my own. I took premade jewellery and started customising it by adding a skull bead or two. Then I naturally started to make my own skull jewellery from scratch by  learning and honing my skills.  Once I’d got an idea of the sort of items I wanted to create I just did it!

 

I created so much skull jewellery I thought “I can’t possibly wear all this!” so decided to start selling it as I can’t be the only person who wants alternative jewellery? I guess you feel the same otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this!

 

If there’s anything you’d love me to cover in my blog just drop me an email. In the meantime, why not check out my current skull jewellery here.

 

Take care of yourselves and stay safe out there!
