My Second Love, Embroidery. Chocolate will always be first.

I love arts and craft, my favourite thing being embroidery. I started my shop to sell my embroidered personalized gifts. I do hand, machine and free motion embroidery, sometimes called Irish embroidery. Which I learnt working for an embroidery firm in London. It was while working there that I embroidered the silk covers for the then Lady Diana's wedding dress.

I decided to personalize everything I made as having the name Yasmin, I know how it is to never find your name on anything. I applique, embroider and paint my bags. While I love the freedom of just working whatever design takes my fancy, I also love when I am given artwork and told to design a bag or cushion to go with it, the challenge is fun. I work on my own from home, I make all the pieces from start to finish. I always have a note book with me to draw any design that comes to mind.

I have been making bags and gifts for over 16 years, time for a change I thought.
I decided to go in another direction and that is making key chains. I started making them and found out that I had to learn all of the same techniques involved in jewellery making, as I wanted to make bead charms for my key chains. I had no plans on making jewellery, that market is quite crowded.

You may plan something, but you never know how it is going to work out. I made an anklet for my sister, a friend saw it and said she would like it as a bracelet. So I made a bracelet. My sister then wanted a bracelet for her friends child. I put it on my Facebook page. I got another order for a bracelet. Cut a long story short, I'm almost 20 bracelets, 2 anklets and 1 necklace in. I was even given an outfit and told to made a necklace and earring for it. I spend a couple of hours every Saturday in my local bead shop buying items for my key chains, but double the amount for jewellery.
