Here at Prisoners of the Crown all work is designed and crafted in situ; we do not run a factory production line and we have no truck whatsoever with cheap imported materials and/or fixings – unless über tackiness is conceptually appropriate for a particular piece!! Additional elements, such as the pearls, are sourced and selected by us personally. Ah, the joys of travel.
All of Ginger’s saw pierced pieces are hand cut – nothing is laser cut – and the intricacy is extremely labour intensive. Consequently all works, if not one-off, will be limited edition at the very most.
We are similarly eccentric in our trading arrangements; we prefer to deal directly with prospective customers/collectors; we have too much respect for the work to allow it to be casually tossed into a virtual shopping cart like some piece of mass-produced tat. In this we are unapologetically ‘atelier’ by nature.
For long distance fanciers, purchases can be made via direct deposit or PayPal and delivered by Registered/Express Post. So if you have a yen for any of the work on offer then please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (61 2) 64942191 to kick-start the conversation. We love a chat.
