I was never that crafty growing up - it’s certainly something I’ve discovered later in life! I started jewellery-making on a workshop on my honeymoon cruise several years ago, and fell in love with the craft (although my husband didn’t!) For the first few years, all my family and friends got jewellery for birthdays, and my husband suggested that I start selling my jewellery as I had acquired so much of it… so I started selling online. Since then, I have continually learnt new techniques; that is one of the most fun parts of jewellery making!
I like to learn from books, and have written my own tutorials for magazines, and like to think I’ve helped grow others’ passion for jewellery-making too! I just love sharing my knowledge and love of jewellery-making, and I was so happy when I had the opportunity to join Create and Craft.
Thanks to the other ladies who joined Create and Craft as contributors, I’ve recently started card making… and I can’t wait to see where that takes me!
Statement pieces, like one-of-a-kind necklaces, where I can let my creativity fly.
Tricky, there’s so many. I think it would be cords or wire.
The first time I used sari silk to kumihimo, the silk strands got everywhere. I was cleaning up for days and days afterwards.
Never throw out a mistake the same day. Go back to it fresh the next day; you may be able to save it, or it may prompt an even better idea for a design.
