Militsa Milenkova Jewellery
'My work is mostly spontaneous, I draw my inspiration mainly from my surroundings and experiences. Everyday objects, shapes, scenes and situations.
In my practice, I explore various concepts and questions that intrigue me, through self-initiated projects. These challenge my creativity and give me the opportunity to experiment with different materials. I create series of jewellery and objects as a means of communicating my thoughts and opinions.'
Text Tune-Up is owned and run by Eileen Richardson in Stirling, and she brings a love of language to her copy editing. The majority of Eileen’s work centres on academic papers, but she also has experience in editing commercial copy, such as promotional material and website content.
In editing copy, Eileen is primarily looking at the text to ensure that the spelling, structure and intended meaning are AOK and often, a fresh eye will pick up what you may have overlooked—you’d be surprised how being really close to something (in this case text) can sometimes mean you miss errors, and there’s nothing more annoying (and potentially expensive) than spotting errors when your work comes back from the printers!
Stephanie Gallen Millinery
Stephanie Gallen Millinery started as a side business in 2012 selling headpieces at vintage markets after Stephanie studied Millinery at Glasgow Metropolitan College (now City of Glasgow College). But, as requests for bespoke hats and fascinators began to grow, after 3 years at markets, Stephanie set up a home-studio in Lenzie, just outside Glasgow. This meant she could carry out customer consultations for a fully bespoke, made-to-order service full time. Her hats have been exhibited at London Hat Week and worn at various events including Royal Ascot and Buckingham Palace garden parties.
Today, Stephanie Gallen Millinery now offers bespoke & bridal millinery on a made to order basis, and hat hire to hat lovers not just in Glasgow, but in the rest of Scotland and UK wide.

Jon Piccolo Glass
'I am a creative fused glass artist specialising in fused glass & cast glass. My creations are very tactile and textual and I have a diverse range of functional and decorative glassworks. I also run workshops and classes from beginners through to masterclasses and offer studio, kiln and equipment hire.'
Jennifer Lemon Designs
Jennifer Lemon is a textile artist and designer living and working in Glasgow.
A graduate of the University of Ulster, Jennifer studied Fine and Applied Arts specialising in Textiles. A mark-maker at heart, Jennifer’s designs all begin in her sketchbooks, often beginning in pen and paper with simple repetitions of pattern inspired by all things linear from maps, architecture plans and musical scores.
Not really one for colour in her artwork, Jennifer limits her designs to only black and white, allowing for all the unique tones, markings and details to stand out. With a love of pattern, print and repetition, Jennifer has created a bold, striking collection of Art | Jewellery | Textiles.
Empowering and luxurious boudoir photography experiences for those who identify as female and non-binary.
