Lime Tree Design is a collection of original products that are either handmade or individual in design - ultimately it has to be something I love. I design and sell jewellery using vintage components to make contemporary yet individual pieces - I specialise in vintage lockets which I have developed a passion for. Other products range from cushions & throws to lavender bags: including my popular tins of handmade lavender sardines.
The materials I use are a mix of vintage and new; some designer fabrics and some more work-a-day: old jewellery and new components. By using vintage materials and teaming them with modern ones, I feel true to the make do and mend ethos and it means every item I produce is special. The lavender items are filled with fragrant provencal lavender which lasts and lasts.
My inspiration is wide and varied. It is my mother’s button box and the colours and textures of the vintage clothes she collected. It is the funky ‘60s prints which filled my childhood home. It is the vintage treasures in my Great Aunts' bead boxes with intriguing charms and lockets. All of which help to form the eclectic and colourful Lime Tree Design collection.
