THE TROPICAL COLLECTION

THE STORY BEHIND KODES

Kodes are hand painted geometric wooden accessories and baby friendly silicone necklaces. They are hand made in Tottenham, North London.
Kodes are bold, colourful, chunky and yet lightweight, the perfect statement jewellery.

The silicone necklaces are for mums to wear while still looking stylish and perfect and safe for babies to chew on to relieve teething pains or to fidget with while nursing.

I started making jewellery to fulfil my need for something a bit quirkier for myself, based around the colour Yellow Mustard. I bought all the materials and when I started wearing the necklace I made for myself I started getting lots of compliments and my friends encouraged me to start making some to sell to the public.

After two years I had a baby and suddenly I found myself in need for a necklace he could play with and chew without breaking it or damaging it. So I started making the silicone necklaces which have proved the perfect accessory while on maternity, keeping Freddie busy when bored or soothed when teething ferociously.

LATEST GEOMETRIC JEWELLERY

Latest from the blog

Are you still googling “Etsy hacks” or “etsy search tips”? Me too, and I hope I can keep this blog post updated as I go and find out more about how to increase visits and sales on Etsy, by providing you with more of a plan than just a checklist, hopefully question the tips out there and make you question what you do.

So what have I done beyond what’s been written and rewritten in various blog posts? (And if you have not read any, here’s a small list “Five Etsy Hacks Everyone Should Know” and “How To Sell More On Etsy”).

Are you looking to set up your first accessory/jewellery market stall? I hope I can share my experience and pass on some tips πŸ™‚

On 5th December 2015 I did my first ever market stall at a Christmas market inside the stunning Horney Town Hall.

I have helped organise conferences and events for a few years now and they’ve been quite successful, but yet I was so nervous on the day! I did not know what to expect.

I mainly was worried as this was something I’ve never done before, especially selling directly to the customers. It’s easy to upload your products’ photos online and put together a listing, sooner or later somebody might buy your product. But engaging with real customers in person is a completely different story.
