Marianne Taylor's Profile

About

Howdy, I'm Marianne, or "Mez" to my friends and family! After spending years studying and working in chemistry and science jobs (NERD ALERT!) and many other tedious corporate positions, my long-suppressed creative side could be contained no longer!!! Hence Meké (pronounced mee-kay) was born!

When I am not making jewellery and accessories, hosting parties or falling asleep on the couch, you might find me:

❤ Collecting bright and shiny pretty things (or just staring whimsically at them)
❤ Reading, or browsing in book shops and libraries (hey, I told you I was a nerd!)
❤ Visiting heritage buildings, historical places or antique shops (also a history nerd)
❤ Drooling over things on Etsy or Pinterest
❤ Watching romantic movies based on ye olde books (Elizabeth Gaskell’s North and South is my favourite, followed closely by the BBC’s Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice)
❤ Writing
❤ Baking sweet treats for people to enjoy (not so good at the everyday dinners)
❤ Camping
❤ Mountain biking or exercising (never as often as I should be though)
❤ Daydreaming
❤ Just hanging out at home, aka "The LN" (The Love Nest) with my awesome husband, our two dogs (Siska and Ernie), our parrot (Hank), and our numerous tropical and marine fishies!
