About

I have always been creative I think its in my genes. Both my youngest sister and my eldest brother are both very creative. My dear old mum is what I would call practically creative in that she can put a room together and always makes it look beautiful and interesting (she still paints and wallpapers her own house at 70). My Nanna was always sewing, knitting, embroidery and she played the piano like a true artist. She was also one of life's true hoarders, which was great because if you needed a button or thread my Nanna had the perfect color, she kept all the cards she ever received which was great for scrapbooking.

At school I was never interested in sewing, which believe it or not was part of the curriculum, but art I loved and my art teacher was an inspiration. Clay who doesn't love throwing clay (not at the teacher mind). We made wire forms and covered them in plaster of Paris,…

At school I was never interested in sewing, which believe it or not was part of the curriculum, but art I loved and my art teacher was an inspiration. Clay who doesn't love throwing clay (not at the teacher mind). We made wire forms and covered them in plaster of Paris, collage; we did macramé and all manner of other exciting things.

Art and reading were the only reasons I went to school, maths and sciences Yuk.

Having spent a lot of my adult life without a lot of money, you have to get creative around your home and all my creative skills from my mum, my Nanna and my teacher came to the fore.

I have come to jewelry making late in life but I love it and I have a real passion for beads...in fact I am what you would call a bead addict...I see a bead or a gemstone and I have to have it.

So there you have it...my life in a nutshell.

I also have another shop on Etsy called Titsalenabumsquash. This shop is selling off all my vintage jewelry that I have collected over the years and de-stashing some of the beads and gemstones I haven't used in a long time.
