"Hello and welcome to my shop. I am based in London, UK and enjoy creating a variety of pretty hair decorations suitable for lovely ladies who are looking for something feminine, sparkly and a little bit different."
I live in a little apartment in London, UK with my beloved and my baby girl, but like to day dream of sunnier shores. I love green fields and blue skies (the farmers daughter in me), the ocean, romance, my tiny family, my friends, and eating cheese (all kinds of it, far too often). I devour books whenever I get the chance, which is now not very often with an adorable yet time-consuming 8 month old. My sister lives in Australia, I miss her.
I have been into creating things since my early days. From the dubious home-made bath products I made from crushed plants and forced upon my mother (sorry Mum), to sketchbooks full of prolific drawings of ladies in pretty dresses. Though my first major ambition as a 7 year old hasn’t been realised (being a world famous fashion designer), I still love to draw, paint and play around with beads and ribbons and lovely things. I work part-time at a graphic design company when I’m not running around trying to make sure everyone is fed and that the laundry eventually gets done.
I first started making hair decorations for the bridesmaids at my own wedding. I liked it a lot so I just carried on making more and here they are. I hope other people enjoy wearing them as much as I do creating them. Each one is unique and inspired by my love of colour, flowers and generally beautiful objects.
