I never had the opportunity to grow up with my grandmother who was taken from us at an early age. So as a child I grew up with my step grandmother a teacher and qualified seamstress, whose mother worked in the royal palaces as a 'Court Seamstress'.
I have been surround all my life with creative and innovative women, who have lived through the make do and mend generations. I have crafted many things in my life and after taking a course in Tiara design and make, this led me into an overwhelming passion for creating my collection of simple, delicate and beautiful seed bead jewellery.
