The Messy Brunette

Indie Biz ownerMaura Bourke

Well hello and welcome to the creative crafty world of The Messy Brunette, that's me Maura, lover of all things messy and creative. I am an Irish based designer/maker of hand painted laser cut wood jewellery along with modern hand embroidery kits and patterns .... nope, no sign of granny embroidery here!

Inspired by the colours and shapes around me, I try and use these in my work. My jewellery is laser cut from sustainable wood & each piece is then hand painted & assembled by me, from start to finish. I try and use eco friendly materials where possible, from the resin to the glitter to my packaging.

My pieces are bright and colourful, like little pieces of wearable art & hopefully something to make you smile! You won't see these in Penney's hun!

My embroidery is mostly inspired by floral's & my kids & I love combining it with some cheeky quotes. I like to give the old craft of embroidery a modern take & sometimes it can cross over to the jewellery side, for instance my rainbow bar earrings came about from doing my rainbow embroidery hoops.
.
I design, make & photo all these pieces myself. I'm self taught & all these are made in my little home studio in Ireland.
