Delicious Monster Tea is a one-woman-show run by Claire from her home studio in Cardiff. Claire sells t-shirts for everyone, whatever your age, gender or size. All items are embroidered by Claire and so you can personalise everything to have your own slogan, whether that be your nickname, an awkward pet name or an inside joke!
Fizz Goes Pop creates all kinds of thing from fun and floral head wear to bespoke jewelry. Lizzy the owner sews, glues, glitters and decorates all of the headdresses and has recently expanded into jewellery.
The two businesses are working collaboratively this October and have produced two bespoke products for Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Fizz Goes Pop have created handmade ‘boob’ earrings. These will be made from mirror perspex in a variety of colours to represent different skin tones with a dot of contrasting perspex in the middle for the nipple.
Delicious Monster Tea have created a white t-shirt, 100% organic cotton in ladies fit with “feeling myself” embroidered on the left breast in pink cotton. Claire & Lizzy came up with the “feeling myself” slogan as it was a perfect mix of empowerment/self love and a direct suggestion to feel yourself for any changes in your breasts.
£10 from the sales of the two products will be donated to Cancer Research Wales!
