Guest Post: Melody Ryder Designs
Melody Ryder creates beautiful, embroidered lampshades which we stock both in store and online. She has given us a little introduction to her business and how Melody Ryder Designs came about...
I was born in Cornwall and grew up as part of a creative family. It was almost inevitable that I would go on to study textiles. I graduated in 2003 from Buckinghamshire Chilterns but it wasn't until quite a few years later when my first daughter was born that I really found my niche in creating my freehand machine embroidered designs.
About Melody Ryder Designs
I create freehand machine embroidered lampshades, cushions and framed pictures. My lampshades use simple, elegant designs inspired from the landscapes and coastal footpaths and gardens from West Cornwall where I live. I have produced a variety of different collections, some which incorporate the simplicity of machine embroidery and others where I add appliqué materials using Liberty fabrics. My signature backgrounds tend to include a ‘natural’ colour felt, this produces a softer shade of light.
