CIJ Featured Shop: No Ditto Designs
Lisa from No Ditto Designs prides herself on creating one of a kind pieces of jewellery, hence the ‘No Ditto’ in her shop name!
Lisa is a trained silver smith and jewellery designer, she found a passion for jewellery; as sentimental items, or an accessory to coordinate with whatever outfit one chooses. Lisa likes to wear different jewellery every day.
Why beads? You might expect Lisa’s shop to be full of hand made silver jewellery, but as she spent her childhood upside down doing gymnastics, she got the gift that keeps on giving – spinal problems. Silversmithing is kinda tough – it’s a bit like carpentry in terms of effort – and although Lisa has sketchbooks full of ideas, she suffers too much pain to bring them to actuality.
The silver lining is – (there’s always one) without all the months of enforced physical inactivity, Lisa’s art and design (and patience) would not have progressed in the direction it has and now her beaded jewellery is what brings her joy.
Lisa never makes the same item twice, she likes the design process and experimenting with colour and texture to create unique pieces.
