When I started Booknerdfangirl back in 2013, it was an apt description of who I was at the time (still am, really), and the name just clicked. Booknerdfangirl was all about illustration and book cover design.
I was working with my favourite authors, both indie and traditionally published, designing their book covers and creating artwork of their characters. It was a privelage and an amazing journey working with these amazingly talented authors.
In 2016 Booknerdfangirl bought our laser, named him and the computer that runs him Tony Stark and Jarvis respectively.
While I continued to work with indie authors, I started learning how to create laser cut jewellery using my artwork, and designs inspired by my favourite fandoms.
Booknerdfangirl continued to evolve and focused primarily on jewellery design & creation, and bookmarks made with artwork painted by Jemina Venter.
Fast forward to 2022, and my main focus now as a small business is designing unique acrylic jewellery, bookends and going back to painting characters that I love so much.
Booknerdfangirl continued to grow, with the amazing support of the book community, and more recently the brooching community, it was time to elevate our brand and bring you more of the beautiful brooches & bookends you've come to expect.
And thus, Fictional Alchemy is born.
