Pairs of pipes, prepped and ready
Amelia Parker's jewellery, cards and small accessories are created using fragments of clay smoking pipes collected from the foreshores of the River Thames. Many of the fragments date back to the 16th century and are used as found, having been eroded and coloured by time and tide over hundreds of years – they have not been trimmed to size or enhanced in any way. Commissions welcome.

Buy online – also vintage and antique ephemera

My selling site Recycled London is not just for my clay pipe creations. 

I also offer unusual vintage and antique items such as old tobacco, toffee and biscuit tins which are good for storage or display, plus Art Deco buttons and other miscellaneous items.

Please do enquire if you can't find what you are looking for as I have much more than is listed.

Bespoke and commissioned pieces

Larger statement pieces, similar to the vertical pendants with three or five fragments, are sometimes available.
The longer fragments are harder to source and so available stock is limited.
Check on Etsy for pre-made versions.



Long chains
The image below shows a necklace made using 25mm/1" fragments. At 80cm/32" long, it is multi-functional as it can be worn in three ways – as a long necklace, as a double short necklace, or as a bracelet.
Please note, this specific item is not for sale but similar necklaces can be made to order. Please enquire for details.
There are more items in this range – 2-chain necklaces, bracelets and earrings.













Statement pieces can make a great impact.
Shown below left is a long length made from older fragments and worn four times around the neck for a tribal look. Below right is a red cotton strand approximately three metres long which can be worn in a variety of ways.















Or, why not send in your old necklaces or beads and have them transformed into something new and truly unique, as shown below...?

Necklaces – vertical designs

Every pipe fragment is unique, therefore every necklace is unique.
Fragment sizes vary a lot due to their age.
Centre-pieces vary from 30–90mm long / 4–10mm wide.

All made with silver-plated wire and findings on 2mm 18"/45cm waxed cotton cords (these can be altered or made to specific lengths). Please visit my Etsy shop to find out more. 
If you do not see what you require online, please contact me and I will send you a photo of the closest match(es) for you to choose from.
Matching items also available.
