Don't stray from the path....

Lost in the Forest was born in 2007 in the Scottish countryside, I collect folk tales, fairy stories and love songs. I embroider, glue and stitch them together with forgotten keys, lost thimbles, lace & ribbon to create special keepsakes & heirlooms.

I have a Fine Art degree and work in museums and galleries. I love collections, whether that's a collection of the finest paintings, or a collection of random oddities at the back of a drawer. Everything tells a story and I aim to turn lost and forgotten items into new things, for you to add to your story.

Hi, welcome to Lost in the Forest.

I create jewellery, accessories and other things that take my fancy from vintage, antique, re-used and recycled things which I stumble upon on my travels. Many of my items are one off pieces, which you won't find anywhere else.
I am very much inspired by folk tales....romantic notions of deceit and love and death and longing, as well as the songs by my favourite contemporary beat combos (The Smiths, The Cure, Magnetic Fields...) Things I also think of when creating are picnics, midnight rambles, forest creatures, birds, nests, home, history and spider webs.
