We thought it was about time to introduce you to the makers behind our fabulous handmade goodies in-store…so, in the next of our Meet the Makers of OHC specials, please say hello to Caroline of SeaBreeze Design…
How did you become a designer/maker?
I lived for a number of years in North Wales and spent most days by the beach. I loved collecting shells and driftwood and started making a few bits and bobs from these. After moving to Yorkshire with Ric I really missed the coast and wanted to bring those happy memories with me so started playing around with silver and loved it. My passion for the coast has continued and I love making pieces that are inspired by the coast and nautical tales.
How did you choose your business name and what’s the meaning behind it?
I wanted a coastal name rather than just using my own name and after working with kitesurfers/windsurfers back in North Wales and discussing the perfect Sea Breeze it seemed the perfect name for me.
Do you run your business full time or balance another job as well?
I am now in my second year of working full-time for myself.
What’s your favourite thing about running your business?
I love the fact I can make things that I love and can continually change and develop my work at my own pace.
Of all the things you’ve ever made, which has been your favourite?
That is a hard one it changes all the time. I guess my mermaids are one of my favourite to do.
Describe your business in three words
Wearable coastal art.
