I'm Natasha and I absolutely love making jewellery! I started my brand back in 2011- I'd just come back from working in London. Things didn't work out for me in the big smoke, so I came home with my tail between my legs! I had no job, but had a degree in the arts, and an eye for detail. I knew I had some amazing gifts and talents I could use to serve others with, but had no idea how to get myself out of my rut. I sought the advice of my friends and one of them told me this:
"Your dream job does not exist, you need to go and create it!"
I was so struck by these words that I decided to start my own business. Pin Pin Finds started in a shoe box full of chains and findings, and has since grown into it's own home office. I want my jewellery to be tangible items that you can wear every day to inspire you, or to keep a treasured memory. My jewellery is a mixture of vintage imagery reworked into jewellery. I also use 24k gold leaf and hand painting on some of my extra special pieces. I've also collaborated with Kim Rebecca who has helped with with my Summer 2015 range. Each piece is assembled in my studio, by my fair hands. I am a one woman team on a mission!
Since launching in 2011, Pin Pin Finds has won The BCTF 2017 TOP 3 Best Brand Award and Storenvy Best Seller and Best Product Awards. Pin Pin Finds has been featured in Metro, The Norwich Resident, EDP and on the infamous Retro Chick Blog. Pin Pin Finds jewellery has made sales in every continent- yes, even Antarctica!
I also love to inspire others to be creative too, which is why my blog is jam packed with useful tools for those starting out with their creative business. I want you to have a job that you love so much you could squish it until it's eye balls pop out! I really hope you'll stay on this creative journey with me, it's going to be one hell of a ride!
