How to make your ordering process smooth sailing.


• Select the main colour of your choice via the options outlined within the product listing.

• Outline your design requirements in the 'custom text' box found within the product listing.

• Mixed colours also available (please select 'custom colour' and make note of your colour selections in the 'custom text' box via the listing).

• Do you require specific spacing or format for the wording? Outline your formatting when submitting your custom text request.

Example: (Line one) Home. (Line two) Sweet. (Line three) Home.

Or maybe you'd prefer odd earrings that aren't matching

Example: Earring one design: Xena / Earring two design: Nero.

Custom Details


All main colours listed are apart of the standard Candy & Kitsch range. If your design falls outside of these, (for example: navy blue, hot pink, peach, etc). it is considered a 'custom colour'. Available via all custom listings - Custom colours are $5 extra due to having to purchase additional supplies to accommodate for your request.

Splatter Effect

Splatter requests have become more popular over time. Therefore, there is now a separate option to request this. This can be for one colour, or numerous colour combinations. Available in brooches, earrings, walls hangings and Christmas decorations - Splatter is $5 extra due to the additional time it takes to accommodate for your request.

Variations, characteristics and "faults" in handmade products. What's the deal?

One of these things is not like the other. In fact, each product is handmade and will therefore have variations that add to the character of each product. This is a feature of handmade goods and not a flaw!

Each product is unique and there may be variations such as colour or pattern from the product photograph. Due to the nature of using plywood as the main material of choice, each product has a unique texture and grain to it. This may result in some blemishes or imperfections. If you ask us though, these variations build character in each piece.

Our product photography seeks to capture the product "true to life". Please note that each device and screen will show colour in a slightly different way.


Due to the custom nature of these pieces, all custom orders are non-refundable.

Because each custom request is made to order, please allow a minimum 4-8 week turnaround. This is subject to change depending on the time taken to source supplies, based on specific requests.

Kind Words from Custom Customers
Sometimes when I leave a review, I don’t give a perfect score as there is always room for improvement. That is not the case when it comes to this business.

From day one, Jess and her pugs have put 110%! into their work and business. You can see and feel the heart and soul in every product created. This also goes beyond the creations themselves. You can see it in the small details such as the packaging to the random sweets/stickers included in each order! I’ve watched this business blossom from only candy heart brooches into what we see today.

It doesn’t matter if I’ve purchased a creation from the general range or if I've received a custom order, I am always left stoked by the great quality and how amazing they look.

Treat yourself or surprise someone with a cute little gift! 10/10 will continue to buy from again.

I decided to order a custom “CELEBRANT” candy heart brooch, and another, and I have worn one to every wedding I’ve worked since. They’re a bit addictive - in the most recent round of custom orders, I splashed out and got one in every colour, so I can be SURE to match with every outfit! Jess is always keen to work with me on any custom ideas I might have, and I love her flexibility with custom orders.

My brooches give people a simple visual indicator that I’m someone they can rely on at an event. They signify to guests, “this person is running the show; she knows what’s up,” but also, “we’re going to have some fun here!”

I even wear one of my “CELEBRANT” brooches when I'm having a zoom meeting, or even if I'm just sitting down to get some work done on a script or on my business. It helps get me into the right headspace to know that now, I'm being celebrant-Gemma, I'm being business-Gemma. This is me going to work…but also I’m doing it super cute.

I first found Jess at an interstate Supanova convention in Melbourne. I fell in love with her and her business instantly.

This is where the obsession began.
I have quite a collection of custom candy heart pieces. I've even ordered wholesale and the process was SO easy. Jess was a dreamboat dealing with my shit (haha).

Everyone adores my quirky quotes and phrases in my house. Her brooches and keyrings always kickstart great conversations.

Thanks again, Jess!
— Rebecca - Poodle & Peach, Toowoomba (QLD)
I've been a customer for years now. I get super excited when I receive new purchases because I'm sure as shit the package is going to look amazing... And contain extra little sneaky gems to make the unboxing experience next level!

These pieces add magic to my spaces. I always get compliments for personalization and attention to detail. But really, I'm just riding on Jess' uber funky coattails and taking all the credit!

Thanks for not being beige.

Dealing with Jess was incredibly simple, she makes everything super user friendly via the website to make sure you’re getting exactly what you’re after in your custom piece, 

The whole process from start to finish was really easy and shipping was really speedy. We absolutely love this unique piece in our son's nursery and will absolutely be buying more to have through the house.
— Lori, Narre Warren (VIC)
Jess’ energy and ability to create something unique for others is the reason I keep returning. To have the opportunity to get a custom made wall hanging created for clients, friends and even myself is the best!

To receive a wonderfully packaged quality handmade product with colours and slogans of your choice is epic. I also love that you can relive moments and quotes from your fave 90s kitsch, early 2000s and Netflix series by purchasing earrings, badges and keychains at the same time.
