About helloterry

Sales 152
On Etsy since 2016

Ever since I can remember, I have loved fiddling about with bits and pieces and making things, so there is no wonder that I have recently found myself creating a handmade business.
I have a degree in woven textiles from Loughborough University and then spent 10 years working at John Lewis as a visual merchandiser where I was responsible for designing the windows. I retrained as a secondary school Art teacher in 2005, teaching is a real passion of mine and I am proud that I work with such creative young people. After my son was born I returned to my teaching job part time and I began to feel a huge urge to do something creative for myself. My son started school a couple of years ago and then I found I finally had some spare time, I felt that the time had come to do something other than, cook, clean the house and shop. Now it was time for me!

So 'Hello terry' was born during 2016 when I rediscovered polymer clay, something that I had played with as a child. Having decided to make a few necklaces from the clay, I realised that I could create jewellery that had a clean contemporary edge, I really love this aesthetic and have been refining my technique to create modern, playful pieces of wearable art.
Inspired by colour, pattern and mid-century design, I am currently obsessed with creating inlaid patterns, the kind of splattery terrazzo designs often seen on flooring. I design and develop my pieces in my home studio in Brighton.
I love seeing how quickly my jewellery style has evolved and am excited for what might happen with it in the future. Please follow my exciting journey on Instagram and Facebook.
