I love Gee & Tea for three reasons:
1) They’ve got a pun in their name.
2) That pun involves tea, which is not only my favourite drink, but my favourite thing in the world full stop.
3) They make truly awesome jewellery and crafts.
And though I could go on for days about the excellent properties of tea, it’s the third reason that I’d like to explain to you in a little more detail.
Gee & Tea is the craft collaboration of Gemma Bolton, Kathryn Broughton, Sarah Hunt & Aimi Liversidge. Based in Sheffield, these four ladies between them specialise in creating all kinds of wonderful things, including necklaces and other accessories, greeting cards, mittens, homewares, bags of all shapes and sizes and even gorgeous 50s-style lace knickers. Everything is unique and beautifully handcrafted, and all the products have a distinctive daintiness about them, incorporating beautiful fabrics and innovative designs. The range is expanding all the time too – for instance, budding photographers out there should know that there is camera bag in vintage colours being developed for you as I type.
If you live in Sheffield, you can find Gee & Tea at the Nichols Building craft and vintage centre, or out and about at craft fairs across the city. If you don’t live in Sheffield, pop over to their website and have a look at a selection of their lovely things on there. Wherever you are, you can follow them on Twitter @geeandtea or on Instagram too for your fix of handmade goodness.
