Apart from my obvious love of kitchen gardening, occasionally I like to pull out my craft stash and play around with beads, metal and wire. I adore beads and wire wrapping but I also like to work with mixed media for my creations, from beautiful Czech glass beads to rustic pearls and gemstones, ceramics, polymer clay, chain, wood, fabrics and silk, paints and inks, buttons, vintage finds and my recent found love of Vintaj brass and copper metal work.
I source beads and findings from artisan owned bead shops and directly from artisans from the UK and all over the world. I’m self-taught and really enjoying where my craft journey is taking me – although I haven’t had much time to make anything of late! Someday I would love to learn to make some of my own beads, I think polymer clay would be a great place to start but for now I shall stick to expressing myself through design.
Do you craft?
