|Ruth Jacksons designs began life as drawings and paintings inspired by seaside life in her hometown of Poole in Dorset. With a background in advertising and later as a jeweller, she is always on the lookout for new ideas.
The idea for my Pencil Shavings Cards came from her 8 year old son’s pencil case. It was the night before a new term of school and there were an awful lot of blunt pencils to sharpen. Half an hour later the kitchen table was a sea of colourful and rather beautiful pencil shavings. In a moment of inspiration, scissors and glue in hand, the first Pencil Shaving Card was born.
