About Kirks Folly
If you are a QVC viewer, either in the USA or UK, chances are you will have seen Jenniefer Kirk blowing some of her trademark fairy folly dust at your TV screen. Kirks Folly have been presenting their collections on QVC for years now, and viewers ring in just to have Jenniefer blow them some of her magical dust!
Kirks Folly is a family-run business started by four siblings - Jenniefer, Helen, George and Elizabeth Kirk. They began their magical journey in 1979, when Helen Kirk, a lover of ornate objects, took a simple pair of chopsticks and made them into extraordinary hair ornaments by wrapping them with embroidery thread, and attaching shells, prisms, charms, and beads.
Jenniefer loved them so much, she named them Glitter Sticks and started a campaign to sell them. Aiming high, she tried to sell them to the most celebrated department store in the USA, and after 3 months of calling, she succeeded!
The siblings began making their Kirks Folly adornments in earnest, and first brought them to the American QVC in 1992. Their first show was a huge success - everything sold out within 40 minutes!
Countless Kirks Folly pieces have since been made, mainly consisting of jewellery but also encompassing homeware, hair ornaments, candles, and even fairy dolls. Many have become sought-after collectors pieces, and specialist ranges include the annual Halloween and Christmas ranges, as well as pieces inspired by Alice in Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz.
There have also been Fairy Teas held in both the USA and UK. The first UK one, held in the Isle of Wight, is where Jenniefer met much-loved fairy artist Josephine Wall, and Kirks Folly is now producing bags and other items with Josephine's artwork on too.
Kirks Folly Seaview Moon - Santa Hat Christmas Editions
Probably the most iconic Kirks Folly design is the Seaview Moon. This STUNNING aurora borealis crystal moon face is huge and ethereal and never ceases to take my breath away whenever I get a new piece. I have lost count of the number of comments I have received whenever I wear it out.
The Seaview Moon is based on the beautiful big moon that Jenniefer and her family see from her fairytale home.
Recently, Kirks Folly have started producing special Christmas editions of the Seaview Moon. Last year I got my mum the Santa Hat Seaview Moon pin with a jolly red Santa hat - this year, he has a beautiful blue hat!
You can find a variety of Santa Hat Seaview Moons below - in everything from pins to cuffs!

The quality of the jewellery means that even the oldest pieces are in excellent condition! Many of the harder-to-find items can spark fierce bidding wars.
A quick browse of eBay will usually bring up many beautiful pieces to peruse - just search for "Kirks Folly vintage"!
