Entirely self-taught in the art of bead-stitching, Sharl has discovered a passion for seed beads, for experimenting with new stitches and designs, for constructing ever larger art objects as well as creating intricate jewellery. She finds that it marries perfectly her ‘island girl’ love of organic form and vibrant colour with her detail-oriented architectural love of structure, geometry, and modern design.

I have been knitting since 2005, but it wasn’t until my fourth (and last!) baby was born in 2015 that I really got inspired to create some beautiful baby garments. I put a lot of love into everything I knit, and I carefully curate each yarn that I use to be perfect not only for the specific piece, but for caressing baby’s sensitive skin. I strive to use natural and organic fibers in my creations, and the designs I knit up are simple, timeless, but with a touch of vintage charm. I like to let the inherent beauty of the fibers I choose shine through, and my hope is that you will cherish and save these pieces for the next generation.
