About Me
I am one of those people who collect and delight in frippery.  I have drawers full of beads, ribbon, buttons, braid, thread and sequins.  I also have a mind full of frippery - granny rhymes and sayings, old wives tales and scientific facts.  I do embroidery – hand or machine.  I do dressmaking with enormous enthusiasm. I make jewellery. I’ll tackle anything from tiny lace earrings to a full-scale wedding dress, from fascinator hats to decorated shoes in any style you can think of. 

What can I do for you?
I work best when we’ve talked through what you want so that I can make you something that really ‘fits’ in all senses of the word.  Want a crystal-encrusted, embroidered dress in an obscure colour with shoes to match – I can do that.  Want a costume from Lord Of The Rings or an historically accurate dress? I'm your woman.  Want lacy earrings shaped like bats or perhaps a mini pirate hat fascinator in bright red with orange feathers? No problem. How about handmade flowers in your choice of fabric?  Embroidered herbal sachets to freshen your laundry?  A lace bookmark for a special friend? How about an embroidered case for your phone or your glasses or your tissues?  Embroidered patches for your club, school, small business or band? Tone-on-tone embroidered work wear?  A personalised incense? It’s all possible – just contact me.

 And if I can’t help I probably know someone who can.  I have contacts with gold-medal winning florists, talented musicians, phenomenal artists, leather workers, braid weavers, bookbinders and wonderful people who can conduct anything from a wedding or a hand fasting to a funeral.  In fact I know many lovely people who could probably help you out if I can't.

The Legend of The Jade Rabbit
The Three Immortal Sages transformed themselves into pitiful old men and begged for something to eat from a fox, a monkey and a rabbit. The fox and the monkey both had food to give to the old men, but the rabbit, empty-handed, offered his own flesh instead, jumping into a blazing fire to cook himself. The Sages were so touched by the rabbit's sacrifice that they let him live in the Moon Palace where he became the "Jade Rabbit."  You can still see him up there with his mortar and pestle, grinding herbs to make the Elixir of Immortality or, as in some legends, pounding rice to make sweets. Like the Jade Rabbit, if all I have to solve a problem with is my own resources, then that’s what I’ll throw at it - myself.   

Tell me what you need: I'll see what I can do.
