My mother said I was always creating as a child.....noise...mess.....chaos.... no change there then :-) I've always been creative and I've always loved and collected beads, glorious gorgeous glass beads, just love love love them, little tiny pieces of art i think!
I have a very eclectic taste in things, never wanting to be pinned down to one thing and preferring the bohemian life.

I went to Art College and was a Display artist for many years, I come from a family of makers mainly the women, although my brother makes remote control model aircraft, my grandmother did tatting, crochet, knitting and embroidery, my mother embroidered, knitted and painted with oils,my auntie painted in oils…

I went to Art College and was a Display artist for many years, I come from a family of makers mainly the women, although my brother makes remote control model aircraft, my grandmother did tatting, crochet, knitting and embroidery, my mother embroidered, knitted and painted with oils,my auntie painted in oils too, and I've dabbled in all sorts of crafts over the years from papier mache, dressmaking, hat making, felt making, fimo figures, decoupage, to bag making and now jewellery!
I also sing and dance but not for my supper ;-)
I currently work full time in Scientific Research, which is as far removed from any job I've ever done before as it could be, hence the need to fulfill my creative urges with my jewellery making , I love to learn new techiniques and I'm attending a silver smithing course at the moment which I'm enjoying immensely!

I hope you enjoy my jewellery as much as i do in the making of it, i would like to think it may brighten someones day in the wearing of it.

Thank you for stopping by,

A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness.

- John Keats, Endymion
