Handcrafted brooches and knitted items

About Nails, kNots and Notions

I make handcrafted gifts such as brooches and knitted items.

Kindness is important in my business as you never know what is going on in someone’s day and just a simple thing can often make a huge difference. My word for 2021 is kind.

I make all my craft gifts with love. My ethos is using my business for good such as helping people feel good about themselves and being kind to the planet.

I suffer from poor mental health so I have long periods where making craft items is often the only thing I can do. Starting my own business has put me in touch with a lot of wonderful people that bring sunshine on the cloudiest day.

I love upcycling, like I did with my recycled cashmere flower brooches. I wish more people would reduce, reuse and recycle. It's so much better for the environment. Self care is important too. You can't pour from an empty cup, so if you are kind to yourself you are in a better position to share that kindness with everyone else.
