Her Curation Process

Shiva Designs Bespoke is an inspiring place to shop for unique gifts, homewares, and accessories. I am always on the look-out for unique products to add to our lovely mix. Each product must be of very good quality, well-priced, and made sustainably. I also love colours and products with a story behind it.”


Supporting Artists & Artisans

“I have always been passionate about artists who create their own handcrafted products and love supporting new and young businesses. Before running Shiva Designs, I was a jewellery designer myself and I know how difficult it is to put yourself out there, to market your products and yourself without any help.”


On Friendships

“I love the social interaction I have with my suppliers, artists, and customers. Many of them have become personal friends along the way. I'm constantly inspired by all the incredible people who create such beautiful products.”


As a Small Business Owner…

“I am driven and passionate about everything I do at work. I feel lucky to be able to live a life that combines my love for creativity, travel, people and social enterprise.”
