About Mani Design

Mani Design

Sculpting jewellery, using wire and Swarovski components like in this case, a stunning tiara.

Hi, I am Mani, a designer, artist and 'Strictly come Beading' enthusiast.

Let me introduce you to my world. My solo career started following a keen interest in arts and crafts as a child, creating beautiful pieces with any media available. Whatever I could find around the house, like cotton wool, fabrics, ribbons, leather, beads, paper, clay etc... I would turn it into something, from painting in oil or water colour, gift wrapping, knitting to making my own ballroom gowns. The ballroom world of glitz and glamour then steered my interest into a new direction which was creating my own jewellery.
I soon started selling my work privately topping up my pocket money which I immediately spent in bead shops.

My job as a lecturer required me to move from Berlin to England along with my complete workshop. I continued designing jewellery in my spare time and started selling at local and regional bridal fairs. Encouraged by my growing success, I eventually decided to start up my own business as Mani Design, focusing initially on bespoke pieces for brides and their parties.

Two years into trading I began to showcase my designs at national exhibitions. Oh what a joy!
A whole new world opened up to me. Opportunities like supplying tiaras and crowns for the entire 'Miss Commonwealth Competition' one year, featuring in Bridal Magazines, to making Front Cover with 'Bliss for Brides' added to my repertoire of skills.

I expanded to cater for all occasions. Having studied Feng Shui and working as an intuitive holistic practitioner, had further influences on my design direction, not just incorporating more semiprecious materials, but also adding deeper meaning to each piece.
Inspiration can come from just anywhere and everywhere, like travel or pottering in my garden, even my cat Honey helps occasionally by messing up carefully layed out projects creating amazing colour combinations which I otherwise wouldn't have dared to try out myself.
