Life Compasses

Handmade Life Compass Pendants in Gold and Silver
The compass is often used in jewellery design as a way of symbolising direction in life. And, like me, many people want to wear a compass themselves or to choose one as a gift. Sometimes it's to celebrate a birthday, a graduation or an achievement. Other times it's been more about a big decision or in connection with a change of direction.

I have developed a beautiful and unique style of compass pendants. But it's not just about their beauty. These compasses are different in that they are made to work - and to last. Each one is set within a handmade pendant and is designed to be worn everyday, in the shower, up a mountain and on an evening out in your best party clothes.

Compass Designs and Styles

To help you choose the right Life Compass for you, here's a selection of some of the designs I've made before. This can also help with ideas if you'd like me to custom make a compass just for you.

Forward Facing Compasses

The compass is worn facing outwards and can be seen all the time.

Gemstone Compass Pendants

Life Compasses that appear to be a necklace but, in fact, have a compass set into the back which is worn facing the body. You could say that the compass element of the necklace is more secret with this style.

Engraved Compass Pendants

An engraving is another way to personalise your Life Compass. You can have yours engraved with words or a design and the engraving can be on the back or sometimes around the sides of the compass. Lots of options!

Life Compass Options


You can choose either an 18inch (46cm) or 27inch (68cm) chain for your compass in one of 2 styles - curb or luxury box. These lengths work well for women and men respectively, with the longer length also looking great on women who like their compass to hang a little lower on the neck (and for it to be even easier to fiddle with!). If you have another length for your chain in mind then just let me know and I'll make it up for you.

Custom Made Compass

Each of my Life Compasses is individually handmade and unique.  If you like the idea of having one made just for you to your own design (or one we work on together…!) then here's what's involved with the custom made process step by step.

Engraving Your Compass

Having a personal engraving on your compass is another way to personalise it. Read about engraving your compass and, as you'll see, there's more than one way to do this! There are some ideas for what to have engraved there, too.

Life Compass Information

I have a thing for compasses and could go on and on, but will keep it short! Here are some links where you can learn more about the compasses if you want to.

The Compass Inside

It's really important to me that the compass inside is a decent one that you can put on and leave on without having to worry about spoiling it.  You can read about the compass inside to see what I mean.

I use the same compass inside each of my compass creations so the size doesn't change. It's the outer pendant that can change in size and design, but my aim is to keep to a comfortable size to wear.

Client Reviews

I've had some wonderful comments from people who've bought my Life Compasses which you can read in the client reviews section.

There are also some examples of why people choose a compass which I'm endeavouring to keep up to date!
