What is Glitterpig?

Hi I’m Sharon and founder of Glitterpig.

I specialise in the creation of beautiful personalised and bespoke products and gifts. I have been adding sparkle to everyday life since 2017.

How did Glitterpig come about?

It came from my love for fashion, décor especially Christmas décor, (it’s where I started), craft, beautiful images and LOVE of glitter and sparkle. I finally indulged this by making a career change. It meant leaving work to study a degree in Fashion Marketing at Northumbria University as a mature student. I LOVED IT! 12 years working in merchandising and design in the clothing sector followed before becoming a full time mum to my lovely son and daughter.

Crafting, painting and glittering with my little ones was great but I was missing an outlet for my creativity, I began experimenting with crafts , creating little items to decorate my house. As i grew more confident I started making items for my friends and family. (Always with a hint of sparkle). Finally I invested in some equipment before taking the step to take part in a local Christmas fayre; it’s been a fabulous journey ever since.

The Glitterpig Recipe.

From the earliest days of Glitterpig I’ve used my background in design and commercial experience to source and develop a range of fabulous gifts, home décor, bespoke items and clothing. I’m always developing new ways of making and creating beautiful, quality gifts and home décor . The challenge to maintain and further develop my unique handwriting and style .

Working on Glitterpig is following my dream to bring a little sparkle to everyday life, provide a welcome distraction, bring a little bit of humour and a lot of love in my own special style.

My inspirations and passions come from my family, children and pets. Glitterpig is named in honour of my skinny-PIGS and my love of all things glitter, subtle shimmer or all out sparkle. I add beautiful watercolours, vintage detailing and tactile and rustic finishes with a little pinch of humour. These are all the ingredients that goes into making Glitterpig.

Providing a bespoke customer design and developing and collecting beautiful artwork indulges my love of design. Whimsical and imaginative themes, animals, nature, fashion and glimpses of childhood dreams all bring my products to life. Inspirational and motivational themes as well as beautiful watercolour florals and vintage roses are all things to make you smile. Adding a hint of humour creates something to make you giggle.

Glitterpig is a dream job.

Making beautiful products, décor and gifts for you and your loved ones is my very favourite thing way to spend my time. Being kind to ourselves and others is reflected in everything I create for you and yours. xx
