as I make jewellery, instead of create artwork (although I did do art A Level a long time ago) and still sometimes paint..I feel like it’s a little difficult to explain a vision! I suppose I love to create something a bit different. I love all forms of arts and crafts! I’ve been checking out Etsy for probably roughly 8 years! I was a bit obsessed at one point! So now, it’s nice to create something myself, something unique, jewellery I haven’t seen being sold.
I am inspired by everything! Which sounds a bit cheesy, I have to calm myself down sometimes so I don’t get too overworked! I love people, nature, animals. Yes, definitely sounding a bit cheesy now. I just love to create pretty things for people to appreciate, and when they buy and actually wear one of my makes...this is wonderful. My jewellery is made from simple materials, Pearl cotton thread and beads, copper wire..simple things can create pretty nice jewellery.
I use pearl cotton thread. It’s soft to use when needle tatting, which is a process for making handmade lace. Tatting jewellery is so comfortable to wear (light), great for earrings. I use a type of starch so that the jewellery has some durability and will last. Beads and other embellishments are used to make my jewellery pretty!
