I make gifts using inspiration and magical images from the Cornish coast and shoreline.

Hello. My name is Jo and I live in the wonderful coastal county of Cornwall. I enjoy capturing the beauty of the shoreline and coastal reflections through photography. The images are printed on a wide variety of materials - card, canvas, aluminium, glass, silk and velvet - and made into many different items from wall art to wallpaper.

When I am not out and about taking photographs I always like to have a craft project on the go. I recently discovered the ancient craft of tatting which is a lace-making technique requiring skill, patience and determination! I love experimenting with designs and threads.

Needlecraft must be in my family’s genes – my great grandfather on my mother's side owned a lace factory in Nottingham and my grandmother was a skilled dressmaker. On my father's side, my great grandfather established a glove factory which was passed down through three generations. My mother loved knitting and now these skills have been passed down further through the family to me and to my daughter and granddaughter who invariably have a knitting or sewing project in hand.

My choice of colours and designs are inspired by the sea and shoreline. All the designs are original and are protected by copyright. I take pride in what I make and the quality of my products!

Thank you for visiting my shop and looking at my designs. I hope that you find something of interest.

Care instructions

For jewellery:
If you choose to polish silver items, take care that cleaning materials do not touch the cotton motif.

For baby booties:
The yarn used for these products is machine washable on a cool cycle (30 degrees C) however, due to the nature of the items, I recommend hand washing and air drying only. Tumble drying and/or ironing are not recommended as this could alter the appearance and fit of the items.

Necklaces and earrings are supplied in a black presentation box with black velvet padded insert. Baby booties are packed in white gift/postal boxes. All products are also packed in a protective postal bag.

A gift label is enclosed with each item. If you would like me to write a message on the label, please include this in the 'note to seller' section. There is no extra charge for this. I am happy to ship items direct to a gift recipient if required. If this is the case please use their name and address on the shipping information.
