The story so far.....
Once Upon a Time, inspired by a childhood spent reading fairy tales by Hans Christian Anderson and the Brother's Grimm, and many hours imagining the beautiful images from Ladybird books coming to life, the seed for the Faeriefer collection was planted.
Faeriefer was created by Jennifer Lamb, taking the old French spelling of faerie (meaning enchantment) from folklore and amalgamating this with her first name. Faeriefer has come to encompass jewellery, gifts and a range of jewellery making products with the faerie realm, mythical and mystical influences and pagan mythology at its heart.
After her own children were born Jennifer began to pursue these inspirations and the first Faeriefer pieces were designed and created. In the early days, Faeriefer made suncatchers with crystals, gemstones and beadart for friends and family. As these became more popular Faeriefer began to add hand crafted jewellery to the range.
By now, Jennifer had been a German and French language teacher at a High School in the U.K for 16 years. However the passion to create for Faeriefer and the growing sales in our Ebay and Etsy stores meant that it was time to fully focus and Faeriefer became a full-time business. Perhaps the Germanic and Danish influences from those early fairy tales, the love of folklore imagery, languages and books were waiting for their creative outlet all along. The Faeriefer niche and realm began to come to life!
Nowadays, Faeriefer offers beautiful hand crafted fairy inspired jewellery alongside a collection of beautiful gifts and jewellery from around the world. We have gothic, steampunk, pagan and wiccan influences in our store. If it fits in with our love of the fae and mystical realm, we will stock it! This includes a range of licensed artist images and giftware by leading fantasy artists such as Lisa Parker, Christine Haworth and Anne Stokes.
As well as our own hand crafted jewellery we have a growing range of sterling silver pieces, fairy figurines, goblets, notebooks, jewellery boxes, compact mirrors, key rings and much, much more. We search far and wide to bring you fairy tale inspired pieces and if there is something you would like but cannot find, we will always endeavour to make it for you.
