Bevart Designs loves to create and be creative, designing and making jewellery brings me joy! Passing on my skills as an artist to my students gives me pleasure as I love to see people learn, flourish and develop their artistic skills. 

6. What were the milestones in your career?

All my businesses are milestones as each phase in my life has evolved. I was once a hairdresser and owned a hair salon. I currently own an Art Studio Collective and small Art Gallery ‘Atelier Arts’ in Clitheroe, Lancashire. I am founder of my jewellery business ‘Bevart Designs’ working from my studio and home, designing new jewellery pieces for people to enjoy.

7. What or who inspires you most?

Colour and form inspires me and I love to research. The Japanesse lifestyle choice of ‘wabi-sabi” runs through my artwork and jewellery. ‘wabi-sabi’ is the acceptance of transience (4) and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of appreciating (5) beauty that is „imperfect, impermanent (6), and incomplete.

My slogan:

‘Making the ordinary beautiful’
