About CaravelaJewellery

Sales 2,442
On Etsy since 2013

How I got started in jewellery.....

It all started when the company I worked for had its third restructure in as many years, and I had the opportunity to choose redundancy.

Too young to retire, I decided I would like to fulfill a lifelong ambition of owning my own business. I had always wanted to have a shop, and the internet made this possible. I wasn't sure what to sell in my shop at first, but I was interested in jewellery because as a keen dancer, I tended to wear a lot of it!

I enrolled at the local college for a course in bead and wire jewellery making, but the course didn't run and I was transferred to another course. I discovered when I got there, the new course was silversmithing. The tutor was excellent and I fell in love with making silver jewellery. I still did the bead and wire course, and have done many courses since then.

I don't know which I love the most, the silverwork or the beading. I am passionate about gemstones, so I try to combine both.

I hope you will enjoy looking around my shop.
