I have been making and selling jewellery for the last ten years. It started as a hobby to help me cope with a busy and sometimes stressful job, but has become something of a passion.
Over the years I have explored many different jewellery making techniques and, although my current interest is particularly in beadweaving, I have never managed to settle entirely into one particular genre and probably never shall. Thus my work is eclectic and I am always open to new ideas and to learning new skills.
I realised early on that my beading could help me raise money for SIFT (Seed International Fund Trust). SIFT is a small Christian charity that works to relieve poverty in one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere, Nicaragua. Having visited this beautiful country several times and seen with my own eyes the level of need I want to do what I can to help.
However now I am retired and have more time to spend on my interests, I also want to expand my fund raising activities to support other charities from time to time.
I have recently moved to beautiful West Yorkshire with my husband and three cats. All items in my shop are handmade by me in our smoke-free home.
If you see something you like but would prefer it in a different colour or a different length, please contact me. I cannot guarantee to be able to help, but it is often possible.
