About Grace and Firefly:
After 5 years working as a visual merchandiser for a large home furnishing company, I decided to spend more time on my own creations. I always loved collecting fabric and buttons and while I was trying to find a good use for all of my buttons, I discovered the joy of making button jewellery. Now, I also teach a Button Jewellery Taster class and Beginners Metal Clay at the London Jewellery School as well as making my own pretty things. To fulfil my passion for both sewing and jewellery making, I extended my range from tote bags, little cute purses to button jewellery and also fine silver jewellery, all the cute accessories that every girl needs!
I love shabby chic style and sweet Japanese accessories. I also take inspiration from anything around me and sometimes I find the best designs come from trial and error, which can often lead to something quite unique and different.
My best seller is the mini polka dot coin purse. It’s very popular for the wedding season as they are brilliant as gifts for the bridesmaids. I found a variety of mini polka dot fabrics and cotton lace trimming when I visited my parents in Taiwan and just instantly fell in love with them. Button jewellery is quite popular too, children love it because of the bright colours, and adults love it because it’s something a little different.
We Make Christmas:
There will be lots of coin purses, clutches and tote bags made from Japanese fabric and contemporary print, such as Amy Butler and Michael Miller along with some jewellery made from buttons and fine silver. I’m also very excited about my “Sew Many Times” ring. The design won second prize during the Art Clay UK Conference 2010 in the ring category which had a theme of "Past Times".
