Describe your typical process with a couple.
My main customers tend to be mother of the bride or groom who generally have their outfits sorted but are struggling to find a suitable handbag to match. I tell them not to worry I can help and will guide them through the styles and prices. I email the customer at each stage of the process or telephone them to discuss their requirements. If they wish to visit my workshop to see the range of bags, discuss design options or bring a pair of shoes they want to match then I will make an appointment. Once everything is agreed the order will be confirmed by email together with an invoice for a deposit where applicable. When the order is completed I will email a photo of the bag together with an invoice for the balance due. Following payment the handbag will be sent out for next day delivery or collected from the workshop.
What do you love most about your job?
The whole creative process of making something which starts with an idea an ends with the finished handbag, and of course the feedback I get from my delighted customers.
