The new Candy Candy website launches just in time for last minute Christmas treats!

Following a year of planning, alternative jewellery designer Helena Garcia launches her unmistakable website for the Candy Candy jewellery range, just in time for some late Christmas shopping.

The UK's answer to Tarina Tarantino, Helena uses Divine inspiration, quirky thematics, lucite, pearls and ribbons to create her hand made and finished creations.

The website, which is designed by Leeds based No Volume, is a reflection of Helena's personality and style. An adult’s playground filled with originally designed ranges of hair clips, earrings, bracelets, brooches and necklaces all of which are good enough to eat. The website has an interactive storefront for online shoppers and contact information for wholesale customers.

Candy Candy has been a staple in vintage lifestyle boutiques, vintage markets and independent retailers for the past two years, and with the launch of the website Helena hopes to take the brand to international cult status - she already has some collectors from Japan!

Helena has been fascinated by plastic from a young age, unlike the rest of the girls in her family,

''I was never that interested in fine jewellery. I found it too conservative and far too expensive. On top of that, if I ever inherited a piece of expensive jewellery I would not wear it in fear of it being lost or stolen…Since I was a little girl I have been creating accessories to adorn myself, Candy Candy has been a life long dream".
