Meet the maker Jessika Simon-Osborne

I am originally from Gig Harbor, Washington, but moved to Britain in 2005 to get a Master's Degree from the University of Bradford.

I have always loved working with textiles. I enjoy spinning wool, crochet, cross stitch and needle work, quilting, making felties etc. I try lots of things at least once.

Once I started making gnomes I couldn't stop. Luckily, I had spare wool from my spinning and felting adventures so I could sculpt away. Each gnome was perfected one by one and now there is an army of gnomes on my tables and mantles. I decided it was time to deliver my gnomes to the world. And here they are.
