Bee | Co-Founder & Head Of Adventure

Without Bee, we simply wouldn't be here! She's spent years travelling the world, in search of the best artisans and sees the process, of crafting our goods, through from production to landing in stores.

She can be found enjoying a sneaky cone of chips with her dog Wolf on Margate beach (when she's not adventuring of course!).

Amy | Co-Founder & Designer

Almost all of the beautifully crafted goods in our stores and online started out in the wonderfully colourful mind of Amy. She collaborates with all of our skilled artisans on original new designs.

She can be found drawing in her garden or swimming around the coast in search of inspiration for new designs.

Irene works closely with our jewellery makers and is involved in the whole production process from delivering our designs to the artisans to quality control and packing and shipping the items back to us. We couldn't do it without her!    

Natalie | Store Manager

Answering all of your customer needs, maintaining our Margate store and giving constant attention to shop dogs Hiro and Wolf is no easy task but Natalie does it all with a welcoming smile.

She can be found camera in hand at one of Kent's local wildlife parks looking for that perfect picture.

Leona | Social Media Manager & Content Creator
