About

Sparkle a little bit every day

A wise man whose name I don't know said you should always have something beautiful in sight, even if it's only a daisy in a glass. And I love sparkle. So that's why I believe you should sparkle a little bit every day!

Jewellery is too beautiful to be hidden away until a special occasion. Wear it often and make every day special.

I first started making jewellery when I couldn't find anything I liked at a price I wanted to pay. In the beginning it was just a few pieces that I kept for myself or gave away to friends. But then people started asking to buy items, and suddenly it exploded and now I find myself spending most of my time making jewellery.

I don't have an office, a studio or a workshop, I work sitting on the sofa in my living room in North West England, with a tray on my lap. The pink rose in my photo grows in a pot in the back yard of our Victorian terraced parlour house. Beads have taken over the house - I kissed goodbye to the dining room long ago and am valiantly fighting a losing battle to keep the spare sofa clear in the living room.

I like my jewellery to have personality. With anything handmade, each piece is individual and unique, just like you. I love knowing that when I've made a particular piece, there will be no other like that in the whole world.


I realise how lucky I am, getting to spend my life doing something that I love. I am surrounded by beautiful things that I put together to create wearable art, and the design possibilities seem limitless.

I hope you enjoy wearing my jewellery or using my patterns as much as I enjoyed creating them.

Additional policies and FAQs
Why do patterns seem so expensive?

I used to think the same thing, actually. They seem so expensive. Why is it so much? Why would someone pay £5 or £8 or even more for a pattern, however unique the design, when they could buy an entire book for under £20?

Part of the price may be VAT. As it's an instant download, if you're in the EU or certain other locations you'll automatically be charged an extra 20% (or similar depending on the VAT rate of your country) on top of my pattern price. I genuinely am sorry about that. I don't get that money, in case you were wondering.

You're not just paying for the pattern, though. You're paying for direct contact with the designer who will help you with any steps you have trouble with. After you've bought a pattern from me you'll get my personal email address and I'm happy to answer any questions you may have about the pattern via email to that address or via Etsy message.

The pattern is explained in far greater detail than the patterns you'll find in most books. I draw masses of diagrams for each pattern to show you exactly what to do, so you can't go wrong. And if I ever find I've made a mistake in one of them, I'll correct it and send you a new copy.

I let you sell items you have made using my patterns. To me it's like a university saying oh we'll give you the knowledge to pass your degree but you're not allowed to use it to make a living. When you buy a pattern from me I'm happy for you to make money from items made using my design. Of course, it should go without saying that you must not give away or sell any part of my (or anyone else's) patterns, and also that you should not sell items made from other designers' patterns unless they have explicitly stated that you have permission.

And finally, you're most likely only going to end up making one or two designs from that £20 book anyway. Which means that each one has actually cost you £10. Mine aren't so dear after all! :-)
