About Us

Plain Jane & Co.

Plain, small, large, dangles, spotty, stripey, a bit twisted or bursting with glitter, we have a style of earring for every accessory lover. Plain Jane & Co. was brought to life to dress every ear with the vision of encouraging the unique, the individual and the left of centre.

All Plain Jane earrings are individually handmade using polymer clay, no stencils or moulds are used so no two Janes are the same. The character is in the detail. 

Plain Jane is based in Melbourne and inspired by the ever-changing face (or ear!) of fashion in Melbourne. Which Jane will you choose? #WhichJane

Meet the Maker 

Mel Sheehy is the creator and founder of Plain Jane & Co. Mel is a self confessed accessories addict and a DIY enthusiast.

Mel started creating the Janes after the hunt for a specific pair of statement studs failed, her very first pair of Two-tone Janes in black and white were born and are secretly still her favourite pair of Janes to date.

It was then that Mel was hooked on experimenting with different colours and shapes. In August 2016 Mel underwent routine shoulder surgery and suffered complications out of her control, it was during her recovery that she discovered that her passion for the Janes was growing and the corporate workplace was no longer for her. When her friends and family could not possibly wear another new pair of earrings it was time to introduce the Janes to the accessory loving community.

Prior to the launch of Plain Jane & Co. Mel worked full time as an Event Manager on various corporate events around Australia and has also completed a Bachelor of Business, majoring in Events Management and a Bachelor of Contemporary Music as a Vocal Performance major.

Mel creates from her home in Melbourne and loves singing loudly, thirty second dance parties, cheese platters accompanied with a cheeky red and spending time with her partner Tim, fur baby Ned and her closest friends.
