Meet Our Makers: Jayne Tapp Design
The wonderful work of Jayne Tapp is cute, quirky and creative. Another wonderful business support by The Prince’s Trust, Jayne Tapp Design is the home of wooden gifts, keepsakes and accessories all carefully created by Jayne in her home studio.
Jayne has had M.E since she was 19 years old, and after spending a number of years severely ill, housebound and requiring full-time care, Jayne’s health began to improve. Faced with the difficulty of finding employment that would work with her fluctuating health, Jayne instead took her future into her own hands and started Jayne Tapp Design.
Supporting fellow Prince’s Trust businesses, as well as chronically ill and disabled people, is so important to everyone at BearHugs, but beyond that, we’re sure you’ll agree that Jayne’s designs are absolutely fabulous!
Jayne says her designs are “inspired to help us celebrate the special people and places in our lives. I love making products that help to tell part of a story and that will be treasured for years to come."
Jayne Tapp Design’s “Hello, Lovely” coaster features in our Extra Special BearHug and our Hello, Lovely Cub Hug, as well as being available in our build your own BearHugs. For the jewellery lovers (and bear fans!) out there, Jayne has created for us a beautiful pair of wooden earrings featuring our very own ‘Bill’ the BearHugs bear!
