Charlotte Dee Designs began in 2013 when furniture, which was lavished with time, attention and not a little paint to create unique pieces for the home, was a significant passion. Passion quickly turned to obsession and very soon, the interior walls of the house were a distant memory, tucked behind the towers of treasures.
A FOND FAREWELL
In 2017, acknowledging the need to have usable rooms for the comfort of visiting friends and family, we decided, regretfully to pack the brushes away and reclaim our home.
RESTLESSNESS AND NEW BEGINNINGS
BUT creative sorts become restless without a creative outlet ... the yearning grew ever stronger and many, many things were tried, but left wanting. And then there was paint. Glorious, bright, messy paint. And canvases. No longer a terrifying blank space mocking the lack of creativity to fill them but instead a playground of painting adventure. Abstract pieces, experiments and literal creative outpourings satisfied the craving. But oh my, then came jewellery! SO much fun to be had hand-painting miniature pieces of glass to adorn the individual rather than the home. Making them is so satisfying - they are immensely tactile and always surprising.
CHARLOTTE DEE DESIGNS MARK II
And so it is that Charlotte Dee Designs has been reinvented. Paint is still the medium and the pieces are absolutely 100% unique and unrepeatable, but now the focus is very much on creating intriguing and unusual jewellery and paintings for you and your home.
Every hand-painted piece, be it a necklace or a canvas, is entirely unique and cannot be recreated.
Each necklace is painstakingly created for you to have something to embody your style.
Every canvas is created to highlight and accentuate the personality of your home.
The original incarnation of Charlotte Dee Designs attracted a lot of overseas interest, which was wonderful, but also frustrating because try as we might, we could not invent a tardis to transport furniture overseas to our amazing followers. The Tardis, however, is no longer a requirement. The beauty of jewellery and canvases is that they can be shipped. Anywhere that the postal service can reach, so too can your own piece by Charlotte Dee Designs.
SHOP SHOP SHOP
Charlotte Dee Designs' reincarnation also now proudly includes an online shop so you can find a unique treasure, just for you, all from the comfort of your own home.
It's so exciting to be back!
