What do you want to do when you grow up, children are always asked. You were probably asked it yourself. Will you be a doctor? A lawyer? An adventurer? Will you try to change the world?
A little while ago I was thinking long and hard about my life and my business trying to decide what my purpose was.
"The truth is", I thought to myself, "that jewellery and earrings and lapel pins and handbags are not going to change the world".
They are just things. Things we wear and things we own and like. But still just things. But what if the things we own are full of meaning? What if they can change the way someone feels about something?
I realised that, whilst not changing the world, a little lapel pin could affect how someone feels. Just by putting it on, wearing it or gifting it you could remind yourself that you are bold and brave and smart and strong. You could remember that it's OK to be introverted or love books or crafts or art.
You could wear it as a badge to protect yourself against the world. So that is what I am making. Little reminders and little shields.

While other people are out, frolicking in the sea, playing footy in the park or melting at the tennis us shadow seekers need to hide, cover ourselves in long shirts and skirts or wait for the sun to go down before venturing outside.
Stay too long and you could be fried to a crisp, covered in blisters or red as a cooked lobster. I have made a new illustration to celebrate hiding in the shade.
