Sugar and Violets came about several years ago, when Cassi felt the push to begin sharing her creative ventures online with no real goal in mind, it was simply just to share.
She made my way through many hobbies, with gemstones and essential oils grasping her heart for quite a while (and still inspiring some of her work to this day), but she never found herself about to fully settle on something that made her soul sing the way she wanted it to. Fast forward to 2017, Cassi discovered resin while aching for a creative outlet while going through a rough time. Instantly, she was enthralled, by the colour and the process and flow. It filled her with purpose from that very first moment.
Cassi began sharing her art online and before I knew it, multiple people had it hanging in their homes. Unfortunately that led to a little bit of the magic being replaced with stress, worrying if her paintings would sell rather than just painting to make herself happy, and she craved a way to make mini art instead in the form of jewellery. Cassi invested quite a lot of time and money into learning the skills she has now, trialling different mediums and developing the style she's now quite proud of.
Without knowing it back when Cassi chose the name Sugar and Violets all those years ago (by brainstorming a bunch of different words and seeing what looked like it went well together), she ended up with the perfect name to encompass her brand and style. If you follow Cassi on social media, you may see her regularly share that she's inspired by 'earth & magic'. What she mean by this is that 'Sugar' is the magic, the resin that she uses, full of sparkle and flowing ethereal colour. And 'Violets' being the earth. The clay, textured with granite, shaped and moulded with her hands into shapes and colours inspired by the world around her.
Every day Cassi feels grateful to have found her passion in these tiny wearable pieces of magic!
