MADE IN JERSEY - MEET THE MAKERS
Elaine says “I moved to Jersey 50 years ago and never left. Having worked in the finance industry for 40 years, I am now happily retired in beautiful St Ouen with my partner and have found my ‘creative side’. I create designer wreaths for doors, gifts and special occasions.
I first got the idea of making wreaths in America. Wreath making is very big in America where I stay 5 months each year. I noticed most front/garage doors had wreaths on them. They also changed the wreaths according to seasons and special holidays I.e. Christmas, New Year, Valentines Day, St Patrick’s Day, Easter, Summer, 4th July, Halloween, etc. The first one I made was a Valentine wreath which I enjoyed making so much I made lots more for friends and as gifts."
