The Messy Brunette is the wonderful creative crafty world of Maura Bourke, lover of all things creative and handmade.
Coming back from the UK with 2 small children in tow & a house in need of a upcycle itself, my creative endeavours began! I am a multi crafter & love trying them all. I made the decision to stay at home as one of my children was diagnosed with S&L issues & autism, but the need to create or do something to keep my sanity was a must. I found Instagram & whole creative world opened up. It was through the app, that people discovered me & my work. I then took the plunge & started selling in late 2017.
My works are modern embroidery hoop art all designed & handmade by me. I offer ready-made pieces & custom pieces to the customer's requirements. Some are for the nursery, wedding related, some quirky, some are rude. I like mixing the old craft of embroidery with some cheeky quotes.
My jewellery range consists of embroidery pieces again, like little pieces of wearable art. I also offer beautiful eco friendly laser cut wood jewellery. My wood pieces are mostly made from sustainable wood, all laser cut & hand painted individually. I like them to be colourful & everyday wearable.
