"Time to start my own business"!
After spending five years in
the Caribbean we decided to return to Great Britain in 2002. My husband
Alan and I decided that it was time to do our own thing so we opened a gift
shop in the lovely market town of Hexham in Northumberland. Within two years
and with much persuasion I had started to experiment with my hobby of "leading"
glassware and was soon selling my own product in our shop.
Wildflower Studio was born!
This really gave me the
confidence to pursue Wildflower Studio full-time so we sold the shop and became
a genuine cottage industry; our home was never to be the same again.
After more than two years of chaos at home we opened our
first studio, where we produced more variations on our designswith the input of our regular
customers and studio visitors.
Back to our home.
In June 2009 we decided it was time to return to Hexham to
open GIFT our studio/shop where we will continue to develop our business back
where it all started, after all, there’s no place like home!
The response to my work over
the last few years has been tremendous; people have been kind enough to praise
and purchase my work and contributed ideas which have inspired finished
I do hope you enjoy looking atmy work as much as I have enjoyed
designing and making them.
