Hello, my name is Hayleigh; the one woman band behind Lyra & Atlas, and Mimi to two beautiful little humans. I run this creative venture from our little home near the Cotswolds. I don't have a fancy studio but I do have the joy of creating whilst my children weave through my legs, running their hands through the rope, and embracing as many cuddles as possible.
For me, Macrame began as a form of therapy (in 2017) as a coping mechanism.
After the arrival of our second born, a beautiful boy, it soon became apparent that I was fighting Post Natal Depression, and these knots became my moving meditation. I often get lost in my creations - it allows me to stop and start really soak in this precious time at home with my little ones.
I often find myself looking for new ways to cope and to find joy in this busy world. Amongst other things - such as aromatherapy oils, yoga and mindful time with my family - I find crystals a beautiful source of love, support and guidance. I hope the rocks that I choose to share can bring this same healing to others.
Recently, I am feeling a much greater call towards plants and their power and medicinal benefits, but rocks with always hold a place deep in my heart and soul.
