About

Sunshine & Starlight is a real mixed bag, a student one night, whilst trying to figure out a way to supplement her ever increasing, quickly dissapearing student loan, decided to add another ball to the juggling act of a full time job and full time studies by picking up some knitting needles and trying to remember what her Gran had taught her many, many moons ago.......

Since then I've taught myself to knit and design the patterns for many different Toys, from Traditional style Teddy Bears to current Children's Favourites. I also stock a range of Children and Infant's Knit Wear in Modern Styles as well as Traditional Matinee Sets.

I'm getting to that age where my friends and relatives are starting to settle down and start families, I nearly had a heart attack when I walked into MotherCare to find the latest new arrival a gift. I turned on…

I'm getting to that age where my friends and relatives are starting to settle down and start families, I nearly had a heart attack when I walked into MotherCare to find the latest new arrival a gift. I turned on my heels and left trying to figure out how I could go about welcoming the little one, without breaking the bank! I had an ingenious idea, and off I toddled to the charity shop followed by the craft shop and my Tie-dye Baby Collection was born!!

But, all this knitting was starting to affect my uni work, it is hard to write with blisters on the fingers!!! So To give my fingers a a break, I then push my eyesight to the limit by designing and making Crystal Jewellery all with Sterling Silver findings.


Wether you believe in the properties of crystals and are looking for a specific stone or if you just like the colour and their sparkle, I hope you'll find something to suit. And if you don't, drop me a message or visit my website: www.sunshineandstarlight.co.uk and I can design something especially for you! ◕‿◕

Someone once told me that I should always sell my crafts under a name that means something to me, they suggested I use 'Heulwen' to try and promote the localness of the pieces, this is why my jewellery is branded as 'Heulwen'.

I got the idea for my shop name as my name means Sunshine in Welsh, and I usually end up doing most of my crafting by Starlight *sniff, sniff*

Please take your time wandering through my shop, I hope you'll enjoy finding things nestled in the corners, and don't worry you won't find any "Do Not Touch" signs or "All Damages Must Be Paid For" as most of my things are designed to be cuddled and touched and loved!!!!! ✬ ✬ ✬
