Who makes Plant Belles?
We do. With the help of a small team of metalworkers, we are very proud to hand-make all our products here at Plant Belles HQ in Penstone, Devon. When we are not making Plant Belles we are training for open water swimming adventures. See our swim adventures blog post.
We are Jenny and Alex. Jenny is the designer of all these wire plant supports & accessories, in the Plant Belle style. Alex is responsible for all production. All designs are fully copyright protected. Despite some shady attempts other businesses have made at copying our work, together we are proud to be the exclusive designers & makers of Plant Belles. See our credentials detailed below.
Based in Devon at Plant Belles HQ, our business is actually called Flower Power Garden Products, but people usually call us Plant Belles.
Jenny Maddock - the designer & director. A trained Silversmith, Jeweller & Metalsmith. First studied Contemporary Jewellery design at Middlesex University, spent time at RMIT Melbourne, Australia before setting up a workshop in London with the support of the Crafts Council. Some time later Jenny returned to learning at the Royal Collage of Art to further design & making skills.
Jenny has also enjoyed time spent prop making, window display, product design, furniture design, interior design, brand management, interaction design (digital media) and more recently garden design.
Alex MacKenzie - the maker & king of production. Alex is a great craftsman, self taught and now a painful perfectionist. Previously involved in publishing and thatching. He also manages our livestock, here on our small holding at Plant Belles HQ.
