Firstly I would like to apologise for my absence ! Hopefully, this blog post will explain why I have been quiet! Truth is I have been channelling all my energy into Fresh designs & an ongoing dream to build the perfect website to tell my story.

I met a wonderful lady who photographed my two little boys on a nature walk a few months ago . Timi Eross (photographer) a Hungarian Woman now living on the Isle Of Wight , UK,  explained her background in marketing and working with businesses to build personal and professional web presence. I approached Timi after the family shoot, to take a look at my website, and perhaps offer any solutions to telling my story effectively. I feel the minimal store however aesthetically fits a purpose doesn’t explain my full services & ethical ethos.

In  2011, I founded Little Joy Jewellery , here on the Isle Of Wight , where I came to set up home with my partner, after years of a long distance relationship whilst studying in Birmingham , Jewellery Quarter, UK and my partner travelling with his musical career.

Since 2011, we welcomed 2 little boys to the world and continued to work on or creative passions . Each step of building a business has been scary but exhilarating. Not only developing my practice as a maker , but learning how to become a business woman . Its a continual learning curve to this day! However realising my strengths has been a factor , until now I hadn’t sat down and reflected upon. This website will not only freshen up my image as a business and reach a wider audience but help envisage my story .

The journey i have taken to get here , and finally feeling brave enough to fully share and understand myself & my businesses potential and path.


This month I was kindly invited once again to take part in the #marchmeetthemaker challenge via Instagram , curated by Ilustrator, Joanne Hawker.

Makers taking part are given a list of prompts to help fulfil a day to day blog via Instagram throughout the whole of March.

I find it a really interesting experiment , to firstly keep up with the challenge around my day to day goings on , but also to take a step back, and reflect on what i am doing, why i am doing it and how much i have achieved. Reflecting as a designer / maker is crucial to developing any practice.

I have tried to be as honest as i can possibly be with the challenge, for myself more than anything.Its been acting like a personal journal.  I have also recognised that telling my story appeals to an audience and gives reality and truth to my work. I  have also started meeting new makers,  and greeting  new followers! If you haven’t already heard of the challenge then you still have time to catch up over on Instagram,  @littlejoyjeweller.
