MAKING ART to wear
I started my shop several years ago and initially concentrated on painting. I mainly used original art for prints and surface pattern design, producing gift wrap, cards, and fabric .
Recently, Ive been experimenting with a wider range of materials and am creating collections of jewellery. Ultimately, I aim to merge my jewellery designs with ART.
I'm currently working with polymer clay and metals and make my own findings where possible.My usual starting point is a sketch for a bead. The bead design will then inform a piece of jewellery. I want each piece to be distinctive. My definition of a bead is an ever changing , diverse one. As I experiment, I develop new ideas for my next piece of jewellery. I wear all designs myself - if they work for me I will develop them for the shop. All pieces are handmade from scratch and are unique items.
In addition to making my own Art, I'm involved in a Community Making Project trying to convince everyone to be a MAKER. We explore MAKING via small projects and experiment with a wide range of materials and craft techniques. I'm working at making all the projects available via the Etsy shop. It's an exciting and innovative programme which will help identify the tangible health and social benefits of engaging in MAKING.
I love to link all new collections and projects with bespoke packaging - every item to be considered a gift and wrapped accordingly.
Thank you for reading. I hope you will call often to check out my shop.
