Annabel's Profile

About

Hello - I'm Annabel Neilson, sometimes called Tinx (derived from Tinkerbelle).
I called my business Tinkan Designs - as its not only my nickname and initials (A.N.) combined, but also a play on the words 'tinker' (I used to travel and I work with metal), and 'tin can'' (because I use recycled materials, especially ring pulls).
My designs are unique, and 100% handmade by me!
I also do a festival stall, showcasing not just my own work, but other UK designer/makers who create quality goods from recycled or upcycled materials.
I run a Nozbug workshop too, at the festivals - which is a fun metalworking workshop, that enables people of all ages, to learn some basic metalworking skills, look at waste materials differently, exercise their creativity, and take something home, that is not some disposable rubbish!

I can do commissions, and do make larger metal stuff…

I can do commissions, and do make larger metal stuff such as trivets, fireguards, and garden sculptures.

I do sell my jewellery wholesale to shops, including the Eden Project in Cornwall.
