About

From a young age I have always knitted, sewed or just had to make something! I gained a place at the London College of Fashion studying for a BTEC HND speciallising in textiles for fashion embroidery where I learnt to hand bead. I then continued on, to gain a degree in Fashion Studies.

While working freelance as a pattern and sample cutter, my day job was working in one of London's leading ribbon shops VV Rouleaux making headdresses and fascinators for customers. Many of the items I made were either sold or featured in magazines like Asiana and on Vogue.co.uk

I wanted my etsy shop to combine the beading techniques I have learnt, together with my success as a headdress maker.

Inspirations - Art Deco, London, 1930's Modernisim, Eltham Palace, V & A Museum, Geometric Patterns, Ribbons, Haberdashery, Bead and Fabric shops, designer Holly Fulton.
