About hello sunshine


Hello! I'm Jo Want, the cheesy grin and creative soul behind Hello Sunshine. Currently based in Cambridge I spend my days surrounded by sketchbooks, cups of tea, the odd bit of cheese and my kitties. It is in this happy place that the Sunshine is made.

the hello sunshine product range

My current collections of jewellery include laser cut wooden and acrylic necklaces, brooches, cufflinks and earrings, all of which are designed by me and handmade into finished pieces at my little home studio. I also have a range of enamel pin badges, lapel pins, and wall clocks.

Inspiration comes from a variety of sources, including adventures to new places, animals, food and people. I often find myself inspired by things that make me smile and anything that I have a true love of seems to work its way into my jewellery... like cats, sunflowers and cheese, for example! I also love the great outdoors, and you'll often find me out enjoying nature.

Recently the Sunshine gang has grown to include a lovely selection of shiny enamel pins, cufflinks and earrings. So you'll find different cat shaped flair, foodie themed treats and sunflowers to help you up your flair-game. YAY!

custom portraits and live illustrations

I illustrate personalised portraits on a commission basis, as well as offering live portraits at events such as weddings, craft fairs, and corporate brand experiences. These 10-minute live illustrations are a wonderful way to delight your guests, and I've been known to live illustrate many-a-pet in my time as well. I think it's fair to say that I'm pretty happy to draw almost anything though, so feel free to get in touch if you have any exciting ideas!
