Oh Joy! You're here!
Welcome to the home of fun and fancy handmade statement earrings, thanks for stopping by!
Whatever the day holds (grocery shopping, dentist visits, work or even much fancier occasions), wearing fun earrings are always a good idea. In fact early studies* indicate that participants felt 100 percent more fun and fancy when they added a pair of Hello Joys to their daily routine (*study sample of one person).
Hello Joy earrings are hand crafted from a studio in Brisbane, Australia. From colour mixing to moulding, curing, painting, cutting the leather and assembly; the process of making is slow, considered and labour intensive.
Due to their handmade nature, only a handful of pairs in each colour way and style exist; fresh stock is released on a monthly basis. Think of them as limited edition art for your ears!
You can read more about the maker behind the earrings below. If you'd like to receive information on restocks, stockists and various studio happenings, feel free to sign up to the mailing list at the bottom of this page.
MEET THE MAKER
Hello! I'm Erika and I make your earrings. I'm a graphic designer by trade and a mum to two feisty daughters and two aussie bulldogs.
Hello Joy came about in late 2018 when after an 18 year career as a graphic designer I felt a burning desire to get back to basics; to make by hand and find joy in doing so. And so Hello Joy was born.
Using a mix of materials including poly clay, kangaroo leather, acrylic and brass, every pair is a labour of love made by my own two hands. Each pair has it's own unique characteristics and only a handful exist in each style and colour way.
The process of making by hand brings me HUGE amounts of joy. It's so exciting to be on this journey of handmade. I'm still pinching myself that I get to make such beautiful things and that other people love them as much as I do!
Much love xx
