About Jo

I grew up on a stud farm on the Ards Peninsula in Northern Ireland. My father had a hardware store providing essentials for locals and as a young girl I was taught the importance of making customers happy. My Great Aunts were keen patchwork quilters and my Grand Mother had seen a lot of the world and had brought back many inspiring pieces of everything from jewellery to clothes.

The beauty of Strangford Lough, the antique shops and my love of art at school all lead me to do a Degree in Fine Art and Textiles. Inspired by linens and laces from the Irish tradition I went on to specialise in Fashion and embroidery art College and developed new techniques to produce my own pieces.

As soon as I finished Art College I started designing and making bridal dresses and accessories. Meanwhile I continued to collect vintage pieces for inspiration and to fully appreciate the skill and craftsmanship in them, beautiful hand sewn embroidery linens, christening robes and beaded bags. The local Folk Museum just 4 miles from me has the most fabulous pieces in their archives to share with us.

Craftsmanship and impeccable quality are at my business's core and I strive to mention this everyday.
