About

Welcome to Sneddonia's Etsy shop.

I am an Artist and Designer/Maker based in the UK, working in a variety of media. I learnt many of my skills on a BA Hons Design: Crafts degree, from which I graduated on the 4th of July 2005.

I create metal sculpture, mainly in wire and beads. These usually come in the form of suncatchers and jewellery. I also create functional sculptures, such as wire hooks and trees to hang jewellery from. Motifs such as cobwebs, bugs, hearts, stars, bats and skulls often feature in my work.

I also love using reclaimed materials in my work. I scour second-hand shops for old jewellery to repurpose into new, so expect to find reused chain, beads, and other found materials in many of my pieces…

The other side of what I do, which you can find in my second shop http://sneddoniart.etsy.com , is to create original artworks in acrylics on canvas, which I often combine with other media. Again, nature-inspired motifs feature heavily here, as does my love for the more gothic side of things. Trees are silhouetted against bright sunsets, and bats are silhouetted against the moon, while more abstract pieces showcasing my love of colour also feature. The wire work sometimes finds its way onto my canvases too - wire frames, from which the piece can be hung, and sculptural elements become part of the painting, combining form with function.
