I came across an old box of photos whilst unpacking some of my work room, and have scanned in some pictures from my degree show. I loved seeing these old pictures and seeing how much my lamps have developed since then.
I set up melodyryder after finishing my degree at Buckinhamshire Chilterns University where I studied Textile and Surface Design in 2003. I became intrested in making Wedding Stationery when a friend was getting married and couldn't find anything she liked... so i designed a few designs and I soon expanded my collection and have had various orders since.
I have also continued designing my lamps which i first started for my degree show which I have been developing.
Since finishing my degree, I have moved back to Cornwall and got married to my amazing husband and had two beautiful children, Tom and Elsie.
I love being creative, and find it hard with two children to find the time, but I always have my sewing machine set up ready to make if I have the opportunity!
