Have You Met...Handmade by Jacinta


Todays 'Have you Met..' is with the lovely Jacinta from Handmade by Jacinta. Jacinta specialises in creating lovely accessories for both hair and clothing. We were delighted to have Jacinta with us at the July market and we're even more delighted to have her with us again in August. No matter what your age you will find something to either pop in your hair or perhaps wear as a brooch at Handmade by Jacinta.

Take some time and learn a little bit more about Handmade by Jacinta...

1) Tell us a little bit about Handmade by Jacinta and the items you create. 
I create hair accessories and brooches for both adults and children out of various fabrics, laces, ribbons, beads, crystals and wires. I particularly enjoy making flowers out of fabrics. The petals and leaves for these flowers are individually hand cut, shaped and sewn, and the flowers are accented with various beads, crystals and pearls. 

2) Where do you find inspiration for your creations? 
My inspiration comes from many different sources, including from viewing other peoples' work, conversations with various people, as well as from the materiels themselves. One of my major sources of inspiration is nature. I have always been fascinated by patterns, colours and shapes from nature, and I try to reflect these in much of my work. I have even been known to use petals from real flowers as a template for petals in the fabric flowers that I create. 

3) How does the market experience contribute to your business? 
I really enjoy the markets, particularly discussing my designs and sources of inspiration with customers and other stallholders. I often gain inspiration for different designs, techniques or materials through these conversations. 
 
4) Which one of your items should everyone have in their home? 
Since each item is unique it is very hard to select just one ... 
 
5) When not at The Handmade Show, where can we find you? 
Check out my Facebook Page or my Etsy Store.
