Being creative is my way of helping beat depression. Diagnosed in 2015 I was determined to not take drugs and so began a journey to regain my equilibrium! I explored energy healing and then discovered clearing and intially used sage smoke for which I made my first feather fan. I have always loved sewing and trained as a couture dressmaker which gave me fantastic skills but was very time consuming! Getting back on the road to good mental health has involved looking at my diet, taking time out for myself and being creative among other things! Now that I have started creating these fans I can't stop! I also have more ideas to come, including hunting brooches and Art Deco fans, fascinators and hat embellishments.
