I love creating and I love helping people and I managed to find something that does both! I am a soap artist and I create recipes that will help with skin conditions, aging and complexion and turn them into art. I really do believe in usable art. I love the way that my soap changes as you use it. You find a hidden layer or a hidden colour as you work your way through the bar. You might even find hidden shapes, like the shells I embed in the mermaids I make for the kids.

I create other products as well such as room sprays, wax melts and candles, but they are really to feed my addiction to soap art. 

Of course, being based in the EU, all of my soaps and some of my other products such as the shampoo bars and pulse points have to be safety tested by a qualified chemist so this aspect slows me down.

I have crafted for at least 8 years. I think I dabbled before then, but it has been since I met my husband that I have become a hardcore, completely addicted creator. Sometimes I use bought moulds, sometimes I design moulds on CAD software and create printed versions and I am just about to step into using clay to create unique silicone moulds. This is not something I would have even considered before soaping. It has increased my confidence and made it possible for me to contribute to the bills while making lots of pretty and some ugly works of art, that only a mother could love.

I am studying an online Master Herbalist course. Not with the intention of practising, but with the intention of putting the knowledge I gain into my products. 

I am currently designing shampoos bars which I really want to be works of art that hang form the shower. But I want them to be the best shampoo bars available too! 



Tiers
Bard
$5 or more per month 0 patrons
The Bard is the poet and the story teller. She learns everything by rote and has a gift for dragging people into her wonderful world of myth and legend.


Join me as a Bard and for every month you support me, you will receive an arty bar of soap with a short story from the myths and legends related to the deity or the path it is named after.


Ovate
$10 or more per month 0 patrons
The Ovate is the herbalist and the seer. He is a healer and he is considered to understand the mysteries of life and death better than any other man or woman ever born.


He has been training as a Druid for many years and may continue this training or decide to remain an ovate for the rest of his days.


For every month of support my Ovates will receive the same reward as the Bards, but also a box of herbs that can be used for medicine or magick. They will also receive information about each of the herbs in the box and their uses.


The Druid
$15 or more per month 0 patrons
The Druids are some of the most powerful people in the country. They are the judges, they ensure that the laws are kept and advise the monarchs, lords and ladies on how to punish offenders.


They often deal out the punishments themselves and have sent men past the 9th wave never to be seen again.


Each month that you are able to remain a Druid, you will receive a gorgeous box of goodies that will often include a design unique to the Druid Tier. 


You will also receive access to the Priority Customer Offers each month.

Goals
$0 of $100 per month
When I reach $100 per month I will create a unique recipe for Patrons only and get it safety tested (this can take up to 12 weeks to complete).

I will also create a how to video every month that I remain at $100 or more
