I live in Birchington with my husband and little doglet and I create my jewellery at home.

I have, from the earliest of times loved jewellery, and for some reason had a 'thing' for earrings! Many moons ago, I went to a few beading classes, after a short while I decided to teach myself chainmaille (beading stopped!) and for 7 years I taught and designed chainmaille jewellery. Circumstances changed and after a few 'dry' (from creating) years I picked up a needle, thread and beads, teaching myself and progressing in ability - I am continuing to learn and expand my capabilities and knowledge.

Not only do I throughly enjoy making and designing my jewellery, it is also a form of meditation and helps my brain have a rest from the 'everyday' - so a double positive... joy and brain rest! What more could one ask for?

I use Swarovski, Gemstones and glass beads including the tiny glass seed beads, with Sterling Silver for all the earwires/posts and neckchains and Stainless Steel for any 'dangles'. Although stainless steel is a difficult medium to work with (it's very tough!), hypo-allergenic (as is Sterling Silver) and does not tarnish.... and I just like it!

I hope you enjoy my jewellery as much as I enjoy making it!
