Emilly Ladybird Design

Nottingham, United kingdom


Jema Hewitt is a jewellery artist and costume designer. She designs and creates unique fanciful objects d’art and also writes books and articles to inspire others to do the same. She lives among the rolling hills of Derbyshire. Miss Emilly Ladybird, Adventuress, is Jema’s steampunk alter ego. In the character of Emilly she travels the world searching out artefacts for her employers “Dickens and Rivett”. Jema trained at Nottingham Trent University in the United Kingdom. She has a BA (hons) in Theatrical Design and it was while creating gorgeous costumes and accessories for theatre and film that her love of vintage style started to get out of control! Her designs incorporate vintage and found objects with polymer clay, filigree and fabric and her workshops encompass millinery and corsetry techniques as well as jewellery pieces. Her work is exhibited in museums and galleries across the country and she has a large international fan base among the Steampunk and altered art communities. Some of her fabric and textile designs have been used as the basis for collections and merchandise by prestigious institutions such as The Royal Museums Greenwich, and The V&A
