All pieces are hand made in the UK by designer maker Sarah Kelly. Sarah set up Shark Alley in 2010 to return to hands-on making after several years of working digitally. As a passionate jewellery-lover of many years standing, this seemed a good place to start. Gradually more products have, and will, be added to the family. The medium may change, but her passion for and inspiration of animals, colour and pattern remain constant. Made entirely by hand using original
designs by Shark Alley

The jewellery below are just some samples of the lovely Sarah Kelly range we have stocked in our shop.
