Louise Brainwood is the lady behind Thirtyfive Flowers. Living in Berkhamsted with her husband and two daughters, aged 12 and 15, she originally trained as a jeweller. Louise worked designing and making jewellery for about 15 years, selling worldwide. She also worked for a few years at a local Berkhamsted pre-school (and still does when needed!) but a couple of years ago she found she had to stay at home for a few months to care for one of her daughter's who was poorly. To keep Louise occupied she started sewing and then selling online through eBay. A year and a half later Louise's daughter is well and Thirtyfive Flowers is also going strong.
