Our Story

My name is Ryanne. From a very young age I have always been a creative person. Designing one of a kind pieces is a true passion of mine.


For years I have sold my items through social media and word of mouth. My dream of opening my own store is now a reality.  At Scratching the Surface, not only have I brought my dreams to life, but others just like me can do the same.
