Meet the maker Sue Mayoux

A few years ago I was lucky to be able to start working from home and with more free time my passion for Crafting was allowed to blossom.

I specialise in Gemstone Jewellery, using all natural Crystals & Gems; Necklaces, Pendants & Bracelets.

I first started making Jewellery about 15 years ago, firstly for myself and then friends and family would ask me to create something for them, it was a way for me to switch off in the evenings from a very stressful job. At the time, I was also working in a very male dominated company (I was the only girl amongst 50 employees) and even the lads started to notice the Bracelets and Necklaces I was wearing and would tentatively enquire if I could make their girlfriend or wife something. So I would put together some suggestions for them and then over my lunch hour we would ‘mess around’ with designs… I would make it for them that evening and then take it in to work with me the following morning. And from there it just grew. When I am designing a new creation I may start off with a sketch in my note book but quite often I will just let the gems and beads guide me.

I create my designs in a variety of prices to suit every budget, though no matter whether it is my most expensive Necklace or my cheapest Bracelet they are all made with the same love, care & attention to detail.

I am always happy to make custom Designed Necklaces & Bracelets so if you ever see something in my Folksy store that you like but it's not quite right for you... Please contact me to discuss. Perhaps you like a certain style but would prefer it in a differant Colour or Gemstone or a combination of Gems that have a special significance to you. Over the years I have amassed a huge collection of Natural Gemstone beads all waiting to be created into something special.

I also love to make Greeting Cards and in particular 3D Decoupage Cards - I can loose myself for whole weekends making them and the Dining Table can disappear for months under sheets of paper and designs.

If you have any questions about my listings or if you just want to say "Hello" - don't be shy, I always love to hear from you.
