My Story


Hello and thank you for stopping by my little corner of the internet!

My name is Kayleigh and I create maximalist jewellery in my home studio in the seaside town of Tramore, Co. Waterford. I live with my lovely boyfriend Vez, two gorgeous doggos, Nuala & Oscar, and one very grouchy cat named Hank.

I was born in the UK but moved to Ireland with my family when I was 2 years old. My earliest childhood memories involve crafting with my Mum – making pirates hats out of newspapers and molding little birds in nests with some playdoh – we even made little eggs to put into the nests!!

I definitely get my love for crafts from my Mum – she can take her hand to anything. She even has her own section on here making crocheted earrings called the “Made By Mum” Collection.
(Defo check them out – they’re amazing!)

So why earrings I hear you ask!

I have always been drawn to large, colourful earrings, but I’m a bit of a sensitive gal and struggled to find pieces that didn’t hurt my ears. A little frustrated and in need of some ear candy, I decided to make custom earrings for myself. After months of research and practice, something special began to take shape and I knew I couldn’t keep these earrings to myself!

All Phat Poly earrings are lovingly handmade by me in my home studio in Tramore, Co. Waterford. Each pair is moulded, textured, sanded, drilled and then finally assembled by hand. This is slow, fine-detailed work that requires patience and passion, but when I proudly hold up a gorgeous, finished pair of earrings to the light, all the effort was worth it!

When you wear Phat Poly earrings, I want you to feel amazing, and I hope knowing they were handcrafted with love as part of a small batch makes you feel even more special.

True to the origins of Phat Poly, my earrings are eye-catching and fabulous, while being suitable for sensitive ears. They are light, hypoallergenic, and comfy to wear. As a jewellery designer, this is so important to me, and I’m thrilled when my customers say they’re the most comfortable earrings they’ve ever worn.

I’d love you to reach for your Phat Polys to add a little magic to a special occasion, or to complement your individual daily style. It makes my heart happy to see so many amazing women rocking my jewellery. I am so grateful, and it inspires me to keep creating, try new things and take risks.

You got this girl – be bold, be fashionable, BE YOU... because no one else in this world can be.
