The November give away is here!!
The competition closes and the winner is announced on 30th November - details below!
THE MISSION - To promote fellow indie designers and tell everyone about their wonderful work and just how amazing they are. So what!? Why are we different? We have noticed that despite a high demand, there is lack of free representation for Indie designers in the UK, there are plenty of US sites, but what about when you want to reach an audience closer to home? So we are making it our business to fill the gap and get you designers and crafters seen - for free! Not from the UK but want to reach out to a new market? Thats ok, we'd love to feature you too.

THE ETHOS - Everyone benefits buying handmade. Fact. We know this and by the time we're finished the world will know it! Partners in Crime is about spreading the 'handmade' word, so come on - shout about it with us! We know that we don't know it all, and are always open to your suggestions to improving the site, so don't be shy.

THE PRODUCTS - Everything and anything handmade - the more unusual the better, we love discovering something completely different

Remember we need to work together to spread the word, so when you've been featured, tell everyone you know, to tell everyone they know, by linking back to us here, and before we know it- the whole world will know all about YOUR craft!


Leigh Shepherd Designs

Leigh Shepherd a designer and maker based in Haworth, West Yorkshire makes thes beautiful pendents using vintage tiles and counters.
Her current ranges include Mah Jong tiles and wooden Scrabble tiles. Leigh says "When I first began making these pieces I wanted them to be a complete gift or treat so I made little keepsake tins and pots to present the jewellery in ...

... I am passionate about handmade items, I would really like to see the craft / handmade movement become as popular here (in the UK) as it has in the States and it's great blogs and sites such as this that will help that happen! I also have a fasination for upcycling and repurposing, taking a found object and transforming it intosomething different and more valuable. That is what I hope to have achieved with my jewellery."

All of Leigh's beautiful designs can be purchased nationally and internationally online at and at
