Thank you for such a stunning brooch! I am in love :)
Hat Designer And Maker Of Beautiful Things
I was born with hypermobility and in my teens, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. At 27, I gave up (normal) work as it was making my illness much much worse, life slowed down to a crawl and that’s when it happened. The writing came back (I had always wrote as a teen) followed by painting and then a couple of years later my mum taught me knitting and crocheting.
Now I make hats and sell them on my Etsy shop.
Being creative is a way for me to escape pain and illness. Even on the days I can’t walk at all, I can sit in bed and sew or dream up the next hat.
Each hat is a different character or daydream..... the princess, wood nymph, burlesque dancer, silver screen goddess, courtesan, flapper. When I put on a hat I can become anyone I want to be, I like the magic of that.
I am greedily learning and experimenting with new techniques and materials, pushing myself to create each hat better then the last
