Since I was invited to joined this curated site in 2013, I have had to date 423 reviews from Feefo, the independent review company from customers. Not every customer gets asked for a review – and I have had 5,759 orders as of 21st Nov 2017.

Of the 423 reviews, 378 have been ‘Excellent’; 40 have been ‘Good;’ 3 have been ‘Poor’ and 2 ‘Bad.’

I think these numbers reflect my passion for what I do and how seriously I take making items that are beautiful, durable, well made and bespoke.

Now I’m building my own website following as well as my Etsy site – which also has 11 5 Star reviews!

Here’s a few recent reviews from my shop:
