I have recently made rings which have been created from a blank ring finding and vintage buttons from my mum’s button collection which are all approx. 50 years old.
I love cats.
I love cooking and have qualifications in catering.
I used to child-mind.
I am currently working in a retirement home.
What got you started crafting?
I was at a craft fair at the seaside and saw handmade jewellery for sale, when purchasing a piece, I looked at it and thought 'I can do this!' and then started off making my own stuff :)
What is your source of inspiration?
I get my inspiration from my surroundings and at the moment I am interested in vintage pieces that I can up-cycle into jewellery.
What have you made recently?
I have recently made rings which have been created from a blank ring finding and vintage buttons from my mum's button collection which are all approx. 50 years old.
Where do you sell your crafts presently?
I sell my crafts at school fairs, jewellery parties at my house and have just set up my own etsy shop - but haven't had any sales yet :(
Why are handmade crafts important to you?
Handmade products are often more unique and unusual than mass produced products.
Due to how much I enjoy actually making the items, I prefer handmade.
The idea of handmade is going back to basics, which I feel we all need to do in a time where we all don't have as much money as we used to.
