Describe your products in 3 words.
Bright, sparkling & unique
What was your biggest achievement while running your brand?
I see my biggest achievement in all the happy faces of people wearing our handmade patches and brooches all over the world: In the UK, Italy, Austria, Russia, Ukraine, etc.
What do you think is the most challenging part of doing your own PR?
To get noticed by the press. It is quite difficult not to lose faith in what you do and love doing before you get your first reply from the press. As you may find yourself sending 50 to 100 emails and not receive a single reply.
Your dream feature?
A mention in Vogue would be great; I like to dream big! But every feature is somehow special for me. Realising that even more people will see what you put your heart in gives you the strength and inspiration to work even harder to keep creating new beautiful things.
