'Inspiration came when I was using Jane Fulton Suri’s method of Thoughtless Acts in I research stage. I took hundreds of photographs around numerous homes and from these compiled a book of one hundred ideas: thoughtful objects from thoughtless acts. I found in this research that people often accessorise their doors by hanging coats, bags, scarves etc on hooks and handles. One of my one hundred ideas was for door jewellery. After research into charm bracelets and learning of how the charms promote sentimentality and memory, the idea for Charming Reminder started to developed.'
