After gaining a degree in Fashion Design, I originally started learning traditional metal smithing techniques, and making silver jewellery as a hobby. After many requests to make things for other people, I set up my business, originally at workbench in the corner of my kitchen.
I now work from a studio in my London garden; with chickens one side, and a vegetable patch the other. I love to escape to the studio and get busy, as I genuinely love designing and making things.
I am influenced by all sorts of things, written word, beautiful stones, my travels; and I often feel there are not enough hours for all the ideas that I hold in my head.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
