About PerfectImp

On Etsy since 2011

'We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly'

Can you remember the first time you went into a sweet shop as a child? Do you remember the amazement, the awe, the excitement and giddiness? The over whelming temptation to put your hand in every box of sweets there was and try every single one of them......Well that was me, except it wasn't a sweet was a haberdashery!!!

Our family friends owned a haberdashery and I remember being mesmerized by the beautiful rainbow colours of the embroidery thread that filled the walls. I just wanted to touch them all! I tried to learn how to cross stitch but I'm one of those people who likes instant results so I found Friendship Bracelets - not only can I start and complete a project in a couple of days but I can wear them, show off the colours, change them up, match my outfits!

So bet you are wondering about the name of my Etsy Shop - Perfect Imperfections - or PerfectImp for short! Well I'm a complete perfectionist which I find a blessing and a curse. It's brilliant for my work because I focus so hard on each bracelet, tying each knot in the right sequence and keeping the pressure even so the bracelet flows beautifully. You know you are getting great quality products from someone who is meticulous about every detail. However it can be a curse because, when you are personally striving for perfection in all aspects of your life, you are your own worst critic and the pressure can wear you down.

There is a balance to perfectionism and I've spent years trying to accept that perfection isn't actually desirable. It's our quirkiness, our individuality and our little 'imperfections' that make us special. The same goes for products that are made by hand. We don't want mass produced, machine made products that are lifeless and generic. We want something different, special, one of kind and something that expresses the fact we are all individuals, something that cheers us up when we look at it and something that celebrates our uniqueness.

    My day job is working with young people who are diagnosed with cancer. I try and use my creative skills to help them feel as "normal" as possible whilst they are having treatment. My bracelets are just one of the creative things I am passionate about
