About

Hello and Welcome!

I’m Sarah and I live in The Cotswolds.

I have been designing and creating since I was 5 years old. I would spend all my pocket money on fabric, buttons and ribbon and skip home excitedly planning my next creation. I would then sit for hours on end making little felt bunnies and bears and creating little clothes for my dollies.

I can’t remember a time when I didn’t create or have a passion for interiors. My most favourite toys were the Sindy Doll house I made from cardboard (just a tiny bit rickety) and my Weebles caravan. As I got older, I tried out all the current painting techniques on my bedroom walls and by the time I was in my late teens, I had my first business making and selling beautiful things for babies like broderie anglaise moses baskets complete with little sheets and quilts, fabric lined rocking chairs and teddy bear mobiles from my 1 metre sq ‘studio’ in the corner of my bedroom!

Since childhood and throughout my career I have tried my hand at many different crafts and have both amassed and used an incredible amount of different materials and supplies.

I have a tiny windowless studio set within a large cupboard off my bedroom, which really is like ‘Narnia!’ It is full to the brim of jar upon jar of sparkles and velvet flowers and beads and buttons and bows and shelves full of card upon card of trimmings and drawer upon drawer full of lace and ribbons and threads and wires and wooden shapes and every conceivable craft material you could imagine. There are bowls and dishes running round the edges full of sparkling trims and bead strings and diamante hearts and shapes and lace scraps and trays of teeny buttons and fabric tapes and tiny fabric flowers. There are lots of half finished projects just ‘waiting’ for just the right bit of trim or sparkle and little fairies, toadstools and birds and woodland creatures just hanging everywhere. I turn on the fairy lights, close the doors and love to get lost for hours in a secret world of magic and sparkle.

I have always sold my creations one way or another and having been told on so many occasions that my passion inspires them to make something, some time ago I set up creative workshops in The Cotswolds. I absolutely love teaching in my workshops and I can’t begin to tell how wonderful it is to inspire people and see the look of pride on their faces when they create something special they never imagined they could do – it’s just magical. Their Testimonials are really touching.

I adore shabby chic, country, vintage, rustic, fabric, haberdashery and of course chandeliers and roses (of which I have far too many) and basically love all things pretty! I do also love a bit of magic and sparkle in my life and try to slip it in whenever I can.

I have a blog too https://chandeliersandroses.com where you will find makeovers and interior projects, loads of craft and creative projects and ideas, storage solutions, clothes customisation, a little gardening, a little bit of my sometimes quite mad family life and whatever else I feel like doing! Inspiring and motivating – I really hope so – crazy – definitely!!!

I would always love to hear from you and you can contact me at chandeliersandroseshq [!at] gmail.com
