Unique, delicate and personalised baubles for each member of our family - a perfect idea, thanks Martie

- Marika

Beautiful hand crafted products, the personalised unicorn baubles I purchased for Christmas presents were really special and loved by the recipients too thank you.

Martie's beautiful calligraphy pieces that she's done for me, are very close to my heart - two identical baubles (one for me and one for my sister) to celebrate our first Christmas together in 7 years.

Martie, you are an artist, and I thank you for sharing your talent with us!



I am based in the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside, but will travel for work and collaborations. Contact me here or below to discuss your requirements.
