So Who’s The Magic Behind Beneath the Trees?
I thought it was about time I introduced myself to you. I’m a 28 year old female who lives in England, UK. I grew up in a small country village in Essex which is also a 5 minute drive from the nearest beach. I guess this is where my love for the outdoors started; If you grew up in a small village too, you will understand that there’s not much for a youngster to get up to.
So I spent my childhood exploring the outdoors, climbing trees, beach combing and playing in fields (I don’t recommend the last one, understandably that was an annoyance to the local farmers).
As I’ve grown older, my love for the outdoors has increased, I truly believe that being outside is not only good for physical health but also for mental health and there is nothing like it.
I therefore love foraging for wood that has fallen from trees naturally during storms and using them to make beautiful natural pieces of jewellery as well as items for my home. I hate the thought of tree branches being burnt ‘to get rid of them’ or left to rot. Although it should be noted that I also am aware that we need to leave many fallen branches on the ground so small animals and insects and gain shelter and create homes. Yep I’m also a wildlife lover as well as a nature lover. ♥
All of my jewellery is therefore handmade my myself in a small seaside town in Essex where I live with my husband and my beautiful fur baby (a Siberian Forest Cat). I spend many evenings after work inside my shed cutting wood, sanding it down and them transforming it into mini masterpieces in hope that you will love my designs and wish to wear them.
I’d love any feedback you have for my products and any suggestions of what you’d like to see. I’m new to this and work full time which means I don’t have as much time as I’d like to research. I’m hoping that one day I can expand Beneath the Trees and make this my full-time job and I couldn’t do it without you lovely people so thank you for your support and watch this space! 🙂
