With a passion for country life and British traditions, Spent Shells was a natural progression at the end of 2018. So, the no frills story, well I was the farmer’s wife living in the wilderness of Northumberland on an Eco farm. I’m a mother of two and, once they gained the ability to walk talk and feed themselves, I started looking for my long-lost identity! I was previously teaching in a small school alongside farming and fiercely independent. I come from an artistic family but a business minded father. So when, whilst setting up yet another crafty children’s activity of feathers and other random paraphernalia I found in the mess box, I came up with the idea of the feather baubles and I went with it! The response was overwhelming! Add the dash of ocd into a ‘crafty’ girl and you get a business!
