The Blissful Thistle was born out of a need to find a creative outlet from my day job but it became so much more than jewellery after I was diagnosed with aggressive cervical cancer in April 2019. My wife and I were beginning IVF when abnormalities were detected in my routine cervical screening/pap smear. I was twelve months overdue for my test. After surgery to remove the tumour, I was told it had spread to my lymph nodes and that I required a gruelling regime of chemotherapy and radiotherapy which would leave me infertile and in menopause at 32 years old. Now, not only do I make jewellery as a creative outlet for myself, but I also do it in the hope that those that wear it, will tell my story. I hope that when someone comments on their jewellery, that they talk about me, that they say how a simple 5 minute test could have prevented so much heartache. I hope that my jewellery causes a gentle but beautiful ripple effect of women finally putting their health first.
