Have been interested in Fashion & Design all my life. As a child I drew a lot especially from nature and would design my own clothing for my dolls which I would make up on the sewing machine. I would also design furniture for my dolls house using whatever materials I could find. After a long standing career in retail management and company administration I went back to college where I gained a distinction GNVQ level 3 in Art & Design and an A* in A level 3D design. The exam moderator expressed to me that my work was already of the standard she would expect to see in a first degree with honors. Since finishing this course I have been busy raising a daughter with Aspergers who is now looking to join one of the top UK Universities this year leaving me free to expand my new business, learn even more about fashion design and make fabulous to die for jewelry (currently doing a refresher course in silver and gold jewelry making at college). As well as this I have an adorable apricot colour poochon called Casper Elvis Corlett who is the spitting image of a teddy bear but twice as cute and twice as cuddly Oh and I also have a very loving partner who I am teaching how to draw as he wishes to become a top tattooist. I also love architecture, movies, mags, art, self help books, spirituality, make up and travelling to places where I can soak up the culture. I am also a manners and tact snob, good manners cost nothing and help make people respect you more ; )

Statement Jewelry is still very big this year. Gold will be the new silver and more and more people will switch their long standing preference from silver. Jewelry pieces inspired by Art deco will still make an appearance on the runways along with Baroque and Art Nouveau and we will see designers also using paintings from this period to inspire their jewelry creations.
