Here are some things just listed by other crafters and sellers on Folksy.
I have been creative from a young age, I remember always wanting to draw, colour and make things and entering competitions at school for drawing. I took art at school and college but after having my son I stopped education and focused on him, I got a "normal" job and carried on with life.
So at 30 I decided to go back to college and then uni and absolutely loved it, I tried everything, eventually falling in love with metal work, I love hammering and creating texture.
My pieces are inspired by nature, initially from a visit to Yosemite National Park in California where I found lots of interesting cones. Now I can't go for a walk in the woods or the beach without coming home with a pocket full of treasure! I enjoying recreating the forms I find in nature or using rubbings to create texture on my pieces and I sometimes use resin or jesmonite to add some colour to the pieces.
I work with recycled sterling silver, I either purchase this from Cookson Gold or melt my scraps down. I also send my scraps to Cookson who buy it back and recycled.
I strive to be as eco friendly as I can, my boxes are from the Tiny Box Company and are mae rom recycled material, I use and reuse tissue paper to package my orders, my postage boxes are cardboard and I use paper tape also.
