Kate Nejedly Wine GlassesHow it all started…

Cheekyvino Designs is the creation of Bristol based artist Kate Nejedly. Kate started painting in 2012 when she wanted to find a wedding gift for her brother. She had searched high and low for personalised glasses online, but struggled to find anything that was suitable. So she decided to have a go at and painting a pair of wine glasses herself, personalised with the bride and grooms’ names and wedding date!

First ever glasses!

Over the following months Kate continued to paint one-off designs for other friends and family members, and started to expand the business by starting up her Facebook page and exhibiting at local craft fairs.

For some time Kate juggled her glass painting with her full time job in financial services, however her passion for painting soon started to take up most of her time and so she decided to follow her heart and leave her day job to start up Cheekyvino Designs. Kate now sells her glasses exclusively online, and her hobby has turned into an enjoyable and successful business!

Kate is completely self-taught and uses techniques that are all her own. Many of Kate’s latest designs are inspired by her love of girly nights in with friends and a glass of wine! Her signature design is the ‘Bath of Wine’ glass, which makes a fun and unique gift and has been our best selling glass to date. Kate also introduced her Wedding Range in 2013, a range of luxury wine glasses and champagne flutes painted to match the bride & grooms’ outfits. Kate loves being creative with her designs and loves working with her customers to ensure they receive a great product!
