About Dee . . .

Hello everyone, I’m Dee! A 30-something year old designer, maker and dreamer with a passion for nature and the living world.
I studied Animal Biology and Conservation at Edinburgh Napier University and graduated with a BSc (Hons) in 2009. I worked in conservation, and on an endangered species breeding program, for a number of years before completely changing tracks and going full time with my own handmade business. My love of nature and the world around me now plays a vital role as the inspiration for all my botanical jewellery pieces.
I will forever be enchanted by the natural world and still do my bit to help in every way I can. I am a member of the Butterfly Conservation Trust (no surprises there!), I support the Bat Conservation Trust, the Galloway Bee Association, the Galloway and Southern Ayrshire Biosphere and I’m also an ambassador for the Big Blue Ocean Clean Up. I think it’s vitally important that we all do our bit to work towards a cleaner, greener world. After all, we only have one!
With this in mind I take great care of the plants and flowers that I grow in my beautiful Scottish garden for my jewellery pieces. I hand-pick and carefully dry each one so I really do know the ‘roots’ of my work! I love working on unique and one off items and I’m also happy to take custom orders for those extra special occasions. So if you would like to discuss a design, find out more about my products or you’re interested in becoming a stockist then please don’t hesitate to drop me a message.
Thank you so much for your time and for visiting this pretty pocket of my life. I hope you enjoy what you find here.
