quirky fun and smiles :D

Hey everybody,

Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read a little bit more about me.

I'm Jasmin, German on my passport, Spanish in my heart and happily living in Edinburgh, Scotland.

I have always loved to wear different types of accessories that would describe how I feel and show people who I am.

Browsing through shops, markets, thrift stores, online stores etc.. I have seen so many nice items, but always head one thought in my head.
I could do that myself.....in fact....I could do it better....different...well...my way!

And that's how i started to experiment making my own accessories. And then I found Shrink plastic! Now I am pretty much addicted to creating and painting new brooches, earrings, hairpins and whatever else shrink plastic will work for!

I started creating them for myself and wearing them very proudly. After a few comments and encouraging discussions, I decided to create them and share them with the world.
And that's how I found Etsy. Ever since you can find me painting on plastic while browsing through all the lovely online shops here on Etsy almost every spare moment.

I have always loved handmade soaps and how some of them feel on your skin. Most of them far to expensive to be able to only use handcrafted soaps, I finally took a leap and started making my own soaps.

Though scared of the use of Lye in the beginning, I am now addicted to my soaps. It's amazing what a difference it makes to your skin.

Something that has always been a big, well huge thing for me, is using cruelty free cosmetics as well as cleaning products. By making your own soaps, you are the one to decide all your ingredients. Whilst looking after our environment and animals, I don't want to forget to look after you!
So to make my soaps not only great for your skin and for our planet, Iwant to make them a full sensation experience for you.
I do use colouring and fragrances to add some more enjoyment, but do stick to conciously sourced raw materials and therefore do not fit into predetermined categories.
I like to call my soaps "NO BULLS*** SOAPS!

I will soon update this sections with new photos and more information about the process of making my accessories and soaps.

I would love to hear your stories as well, so please feel free to contact me :D
