Love Letters to the World

All my creations are a love letter to the world.

This world can be a beautiful place, but sometimes it's easy to miss. My aim is to bring that beauty into your home, to adorn your person and be seen and smiled at on a regular basis. That's what my jewellery is all about. My knitted and crocheted accessories are all about comfort as well as beauty.

I've been making jewellery, knitting and doing various crafts for a lot of years. People have often told me my work is good enough to sell, so I decided to do just that. Crafting is something I mostly do in the evening while watching TV, so I need to sell what I make before it piles up and takes over the whole house! And I love designing pretty things, so what you'll find in my shop is the result of my creative inspiration, whether it's a crocheted purse, a pair of earrings, a knitted brooch, a beaded bracelet, or a knitting pattern.

I'm lucky enough to have an artist for a brother, and the Celtic Heart embroidery pattern was created from a design of his. If you'd like to see more, pop over to his Etsy shop at https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/ChaelArtandDesign?ref=ss_profile. There will be more of these designs when I have the time to create them, so keep an eye out for them.

It's not all commercial, though. At last count, I've crocheted ten small baby blankets for a charity called Cherished Gowns, plus baby hats and mittens. I take my crochet or my knitting with me in the car, at the pub, while socialising with friends. One friend once commented that there were four of us chatting together, and three were fascinated by my knitting - I was the only one not watching it! (I was making one of my own designs - my pixie hood - at the time.)

Making lovely things is part of my life, not just something I do for money. It's my way of contributing beauty and comfort to the world.
