Modern Vintage Chic

All of my pieces are one of a kind, made using jewelry and supplies that I find in antique/resale/thrift shops and at estate sales.

Old Vintage Recycled Made New!

All Little Red packaging is made from 80% recycled materials! I currently work from my home but am hoping to convert a garage into an eco-workshop within the next year – this will involve solar panels and a mini wind turbine to provide the energy I’ll need, plus nifty ways of keeping the heat (very important when working in Scotland!).

My source is first of all nature, also I look around magazines, stores and the internet (of course). Daydreaming is a common denominator.
