Inspired by individuality, this service prides itself on handcrafted authenticity and customer experience.

a little about JB


My name is Julia Bethan (or JB) and I am the romantic slush-face human holding the Ink & the Thimble. I am based in Cardiff, but if you know anybody from my hometown Swansea, don’t tell them I like it here. I am massively animated about symbolism, little traditions and personal history.  I feel approximately 1001% times better when I’ve got my heart rate up and I love to start my day with a jog, and finish it fostering my inner monkey with my climbing buddies. I love to travel like a wildy, and read in bed by 21:00 like I’m 80. I will clean up your dishes before you’ve finished eating, and make you a duvet nest on my sofa. My favourite snack attack is coffee, dried mango, almonds & dark chocolate. I watch ALL the seasons, if you think you have a good recommendation that I might not have watched, try me. Ink & Thimble is the humble home of my creative mind & (clingy) need to connect with human beings. I look forward to where this dream job evolves and connecting with all the lovely people I hope to meet along the way.
