Beautiful pieces of history...
Have you met Mr Tortoise? I found him in a reject pile in Sri Lanka because he had a defective shell. I promptly adopted him, and gave him a steampunk shell. He was so popular that I've now made a mould of him so others can enjoy their own defective little steampunk pet.
Most of my pieces incorporate found objects which are old and unwanted. My line of Steampunk jewellery began with a pile of old watch and clock parts which got caught in the 2004 Tsunami, courtesy of my Dad. He owns a shop in southern Sri Lanka which was badly damaged. There is so much joy in turning such a tragedy into beautiful pieces of history.
I love a challenge when it comes to turning junk into beautiful things you will adore. I especially love it when things are both beautiful & functional.
Each piece here is unique, and my lines are transient, like my name, Chanchala, which means ‘ever changing’.
You’re always welcome to visit me at my Studio/Workshop in central Brighton, but if you can’t make that, I’m stocked in a few amazing local galleries (see below).
Do email me if you have any custom enquiries! I respond very quickly.
