Busy day for me in my studio today, believe it or not but this is actually quite tidy! Working on more neutral natural cuffs. #orderedchaos #textilejewellery


Beautifully designed and handcrafted jewellery and accessories

p&d designs was officially born when my husband Dan gave me a thoughtful Christmas gift of a bespoke p&d inked stamp, a ream of sew in labels and the gentle nudge to follow my heart back into the creative world I'd so been craving....

I've been creative since a very early age, encouraged and taught by my mother to sew, bake, create etc and having always favourited the art room over any other at school, it was no surprise that I chose an artistic path and obtained a Constructed Textiles degree in 2000. Following my degree I worked for a number of luxury clothing and textile brands in London until relocating to South Wales with my then boyfriend, Dan.

During the following years I continued to try and express my passion for fabric, texture and colour through gifts made for friends and family and many started, yet unfinished projects at home whilst working as a busy PA at a Professional Services Firm. However there has always been an underlying desire to bring my passion to the forefront and so in June 2014, following on from those Christmas stocking gifts and with the support of my family I began designing and making bespoke jewellery and accessories from the vast array of treasures I've gathered and hoarded for so many years, selling them at local handmade fairs and markets.

Focussing on textiles, form, structure and always with a consideration for colour and tone, my designs incorporate preloved fabrics and trims, upcycling old t-shirts into yarns and repurposing metal hardware to create unique, contemporary pieces.

Spring 2015 brought the opening of my etsy shop, and lots of new ideas to the studio table!

I run my design business from my home studio in the coastal town of Barry, South Wales where I spend my days juggling a part time job and designing and making, alongside being a busy mum to my two gorgeous small boys!

I hope you like my work .
