Hello, we are Vanessa and Melissa (aka Parliament of Two), and this is a little about us...
We met on the first day of University. Vanessa was drawn to Melissa's wonderfully curly hair and Melissa was fascinated by the way Vanessa continually tied knots in her very straight hair.
First impressions out of the way, we have gone on to spend many years, trading books, drinking tea and collaborating on various design projects.
We both studied a Bachelor of Applied Arts (Jewellery Design). Since graduating, Melissa has worked within the Jewellery and Gemstone industry and has trained as a Gemmologist and Diamond Grader while working on her own jewellery. Meanwhile Vanessa has gone onto study Graphic Design and worked in both print and textile design.
Parliament of Two is our latest and by far our biggest adventure to date. The idea has been excitedly plotted over said cups of tea and is often referred to as our plan for 'world domination'. Finally we have created our own little Parliament of Two to take on this challenge and of course have fun making the quirky things we love to create.
So, please take a peek at our shop, we have released our first range with much more to follow.
We would love to hear from you if you have any questions, queries or feedback or join us on facebook, we love to make new friends.
