Hello! I'm Jo, 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.
My current collections of laser cut jewellery include 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.
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, campervans and cheese for example!
Recently the Sunshine gang has grown to include a lovely selection of shiny enamel pins and super fun sew-on patches. So you'll find different cat shaped flair, VW campervans and sunflowers to help you up your flair-game. YAY!
I also illustrate portraits on a commission basis and often offer live portraits at events, which are super fast 10 minute watercolours. 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!
If any of that waffle tickles your fancy then please come and join me on some of my creative adventures through any of the social media links below or just say 'Hello' using the contact form.
