Sometimes I write an article for a magazine that really leaves me with a warm glow inside... Plants Are Magic is one such magazine.
Filled with inspiration for greater connection to the earth, you will find articles from artisans the world over so I was thrilled when Editor, Rebecca Desnos, asked me to write about the story behind my handcrafted family business Little Loquat.
My article 'Beauty in Nature' appeared in an issue focused on local and you can read it by clicking the image above.
Lately I’ve found real joy in connecting with my long-forgotten artistic self, by painting onto wood.
My thought is to not only connect people to nature through wearing natural materials, but also to deepen that connection by combining those materials with visuals of local plants and flowers.
I’m hoping they’ll be lots more coming to the shop in 2018, including a range of pendants inspired by birth signs.
For now though, you can visit our Etsy Shop for the last few items of 2017, all on SALE!
Voices from the Grid is an anthology of short stories all set in Milton Keynes and all written by local writers. I'm thrilled and very proud to finally see my story 'Barefoot in the City' in print as part of this collection and to be part of a little bit of history from my hometown.
A wonderful memento of Milton Keynes life, if you would like a copy for yourself or to give as a gift they can be purchased for £5 from:
Community Learning MK
And if you telephone them, they will post a copy out to you :-)
Here I like to muse about life, share news of my writing projects and showcase nature-inspired jewellery & gifts from my family micro-business, Little Loquat.
