The animals in the wood...

GemsbyGem is a little venture I started in 2012, hoping to share my animals with people beyond my family and friends. It gives me great joy to think that my little pieces of woodwork might bring a smile to someone as a gift (from another or to themselves).

I've drawn animals for as long as I can remember. As a little girl I would draw endless bears, wherever I could scribble one down. When I started my working life I stopped scribbling for a time, too busy rushing around with everything being a grown up entailed! However, in the winter of 2010 I lost my brave and beloved Dad suddenly and had a bit of a creative wake up call.

I began my journey into the art of pyrography after the new year of 2011, having been given a hot iron for Christmas. I took to it instantly and have never looked back! I research species all the time and find myself falling in love with creatures I knew little about before I started!

Every item I make is burnt straight into the wood, making it unique in that I couldn't replicate it if I tried! The love tokens in my store are a little nod to my Dad - it is so important to let those you love know how much you think of them.

I hope you find something you like in my store.
Thank you for reading my story :-)

Welcome to Gems by Gem! Here you will find many friendly critters burnt into wooden items - all original and one of a kind. Many of my woods are rescued from tree surgeons or fallen tree limbs and all are made with great care.
