Stitching Stories

This sweet doll brooch was a very special gift to me from Bianca Smith of the delightful Stitching Stories. 
Bianca is an honours student here in Durban and she uses her blog to share the beautiful things she loves and the journey of her research project
 "Handmade Branding: exploring how the nature of creating craft products informs the branding craft businesses"
She recently held a Branding Workshop for crafters, and each of the delegates received a Russian doll brooch, hand made by Bianca herself. 
Unfortunately I couldn't be there myself, but so enjoyed the gift brooch which has proudly joined my collection of locally crafted jewellery. 
Visit Stitching Stories for a lovely, local fresh handmade perspective♥
And thank you Bianca for inviting me on the journey with you.  I have so enjoyed the insights gained as you studied the Freshly Found brand!
PS - See the vimeo of the workshop here
