Made from all natural & upcycled materials
Inspired by a lifetime of family holidays at so many Cork & Kerry beaches along Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way & other amazing coastlines of Ireland. Handcrafted, bespoke & sustainable framed art, designed & created for all your special occasions using gifts from the drifts of the Wild Atlantic Way & beyond along with other upcycled materials which are given a new lease of life to "keep nature in the frame". Gifting made easy for you as each piece comes beautifully wrapped before being placed in a sturdy gift box made of recycled cardboard & tied with a coordinating eco friendly ribbon & blank gift card. These make the perfect gifts to mark any special occasion such as birthday, engagement, wedding, anniversary, new baby, Christening, new home, graduation, thank you, retirement etc or just to enjoy in your own home.
Each piece is handcrafted from pebbles, shells, driftwood and stone carefully selected & gathered in very small quantities from the beaches of Ireland along with other natural & recycled objects & is designed & created by me in my little studio in beautiful Ballincollig in Cork, Ireland. I am so lucky & grateful to live just 30 minutes from my nearest beach & am roughly an equal distance from the magnificent beaches in East & West Cork. They are housed in 100% Irish-made, solid wood, box frames with glass. I try to use recyclable and/or recycled materials wherever possible and I always endeavour to source all other materials from Irish suppliers, keeping it local at a time when it has never been more important.
I have been making these pieces for a number of years now. Back surgery & a lengthy recovery period forced me out of the workplace & the job I worked in for almost 20 years when I had time to reconsider my life & the choices open to me as going back to a 9-5 desk job wasn't an option for me at the time.
After much encouragement, I decided to take what I loved doing in my spare time & to make it my full time job.....so here goes. A huge change for me after working in the corporate world for my entire career to date, but I'm excited. I hope you enjoy my pieces as much as I have enjoyed creating them for you ❣️ Susan
