Introduction I'm the cephalopod loving redhead behind Ginga Squid studio. In previous lives I've been an engineer, accountant, scuba instructor and most recently - a mum to 2 gorgeous little kiddies (well they are most of the time)! I love creating things - it keeps me sane. I particularly love sourcing interesting, unusual and rare natural gemstones and fossils (its my equivalent of a shoe addiction). I also love colour - bring it on! I like to use beads in my work that I can buy Fair Trade from developing countries, so helping the craftspeople directly. My website is
