Jessie takes fusty old books and re-vitalises them, adapting the body of the book by adding collage, embroidered threads, buttons and stitched pockets to create one-of-a-kind scrapbooks, travel journals or wedding guest books. You can buy one from about £30 or learn how to make them yourself at one of her workshops (which would make a nice creative hen idea too!).
She’s recently launched a wedding service – offering handmade invites, stationery and favour boxes, all following the old-fashioned collage theme.
Meanwhile fellow welsh designer Buddug creates whimsical jewellery, plates and tiles from enamel, all adorned with a handwritten script.
