Q: Tell us a little about yourself; what makes you so special…
I’m just a girl with a passion who wants just that little bit extra out of life. I live in the UK with my 2 beautiful children and my blue Persian cat. The great loves of my life are laughter, family, friends, individuality and of course, jewellery. All of these passions are now embodied in the inspiration that is Babushka Jewellery Design.
Q: What do you make/create?
I create unique and exclusive handcrafted artisan jewellery using semi-precious gemstones, sterling silver, Hill Tribe silver, glass & art glass. I also love recycling jewellery so you will often find me in charity shops looking for forgotten treasures to revamp into new designs.
Now onto the really important questions…
Q: If you were an appliance, what kind of appliance would you be? Why?
Now this is a tricky one and I had to ask my boyfriend’s opinion. He said a juicer – as I get the best out of everything. I’ll take his word for that.
Q: Who was the last person you talked to on the phone?
My gorgeous boyfriend.
Q: What’s your most embarrassing moment?
Oh definitely falling down whilst crossing the road one day in a very very busy street on my way to the station in London. I was wearing trousers with turn-ups and high heels. Yes what a good combination. I stepped down into the road from the pavement and one of my heels got caught and I went flying. I was in such a rush too and nearly got hit by a black cab! It definitely was a spectacular fall!
Q: Movie star crush?
Jonathan Rhys Myers – he is just gorgeous!
Q: Black and white or a hazy grey?
I don’t think anything in life is black or white – so definitely hazy grey
Q: Who’s on your iPod?
Regina Spektor, Julee Cruise, Massive Attack, Ting Tings, Snow Patrol, Prodigy, Tori Amos… to name just a few…
Q: If Luke Skywalker and Harry Potter dueled, who would win? Why?
Hmmm, difficult – I reckon Luke Skywalker because he has a bigger stick.
Q: Best advice you ever received?
Never regret anything and learn from everything.
