Jenny designs and produces a range of bespoke interior accessories. Her collection has a nostalgic illustrative feel and each piece has a story to tell; for example her newest design, Mix Tape (pictured), is the repeated image of a cassette, dedicated to those who religiously taped the charts every Sunday afternoon (you know who you are!).
The knitted cushions are made using the boldest, higest quality Scottish lambswool. For Jenny, supporting the textile industry in both Scotland and the rest of the UK is crucial.
Prices start at just under £9 for a set of vintage fabric covered buttons to £88.99 for one of her beautiful knitted cushions which we are currently coveting, available in a range of designs.

Jools has recently started selling on Etsy and has just set up a blog in order to showcase her new designs.
Jools is always up for a challenge and can ascertain pretty much exactly what necklace will suit a person after just one meeting.
Prices start at £30 for simple pair of drop earrings. Her most stunning piece (in my opinion) is the green fringe necklace at £100 (pictured).
