Just perfect. Exquisitely made broach and the personal packaging was simply beautiful. A real joy to receive. Such a lovely box. Would definitely buy from seller again.

A beautiful brooch, made to order, I love my unique felt creation. Jane was a pleasure to work with; she kept me updated throughout with regular emails and the brooch arrived *beautifully* packaged. The brooch is stunning and a real conversation piece. Thank you Jane!

A brief history of The Shiny Jane Company
Let's start at the very beginning...
My father’s mother ran a knitting empire. She subcontracted work to a crack squad of knitters in her neighbourhood, fulfilling factory demands to make ends meet when my Dad was a boy.
My mother’s mother was also a hard-core knitter, when my Mam was a girl, she knitted Aran jumpers for an entire Norwegian fishing crew. Seriously.
My mother is an all ‘round crafting genius; sewing, knitting, flower arranging, plumbing… you name it, she can do it.
My biological mother is a textile artist and felting guru, so when I first met her in 2007 and she taught me how to felt – I didn’t stand a chance!
I set up The Shiny Jane Company in 2009 in a feeble attempt to deplete my enviable wool stocks. Alas, they have only grown. Along with the button hills, the fabric mountain, the ribbon meadows, the paper fields…
When I’m not frolicking in the woolly wonderland, I work as a scientist and a fine artist. It gives me enormous delight imagining that each Shiny Jane brooch will find it’s perfect recipient, and I imagine the adventures that they’ll have together all around the world!
