The origins of Snapdragon Designs

Snapdragon Designs is made up of husband and wife team Shelley and John Rapley.
Shelley and John met at 18 whilst attending art college, Shelley at first was convinced John was a little weird and decided at all cost to stay away from him... as you can see this went exactly as planned! After much persistence on John's part Shelley came around and 8 years later with a graphic design degree under their belts, they got married. By this time Shelley had become a professional bookbinder making all manner of wonderful things for photographers, design agencies, famous and non famous people alike, and whilst all this was very exciting she wanted to strike out on her own. John had become a Design and Technology teacher and had recently acquired a laser cutter at the school he works at... this set Shelley to thinking... why couldn't we design and make jewellery, the next day John came home with a cat ring for her and thus our 'Cat, Mouse, Cheese' set was born along with Snapdragon Designs, the rest, as they say, is history...
The future has seen the range expand to include our unique Cityscape cards which we also now make bespoke for many shops around the UK.
