About Us

Since 2011 I have been very lucky to be able to take the opportunity to turn my lifelong passion of making hats into my full-time profession - and I simply adore what I do every day for my job!  I always take great pride in helping clients co-ordinate their hats with their accessories for when they are attending a wedding or special event.  Using my design skills and a flair for expressing an individual’s personality in the accessories they choose to wear, I love creating one-off handmade hats, headpieces that will compliment their special occasion outfit perfectly.  I also offer handmade matching accessories such as Freshwater Pearls with Swarovski Crystals in the same colours as the dress, silk covered clutch handbags, corsages, shoe bows and crystal scattered silk stoles to really bring the whole outfit together perfectly.

Occasionally I have been kindly invited to attend a variety of Ladies Social Groups to give a talk and demonstration about my work and my designs.  If you would like further information about these presentation talks, please contact me on 07968 337446.

I graduated with a first class honours degree in Jewellery Design in Summer 2001.  Since then I have worked selling jewellery in independent retailers and boutiques as well as large department stores such as Liberty and Harvey Nichols in London.  A lot of my time has been spent managing contemporary art and design-led craft galleries, as well as making and selling my own jewellery ranges.  I personally draw my inspiration from observing flora in beautiful garden settings and enjoy highlighting accents in an individual's self expression by the way they accessorise.

I have lived happily in Winchester with my husband for several years and enjoy being an active member of the Winchester Musicals and Opera Society performing at The Theatre Royal, Winchester each spring and autumn.

Please telephone me on 07968 337446 to make an appointment to visit my studio in Winchester, Hampshire where we can talk through your requirements.  I really look forward to meeting you soon!
