About Me

My photo
I am a bit of a hippy at heart, although I am a bit to young to have been a flower child (I was a New Romantic as a teenager). I love the individuality and colourfulness of the arty, hippy style and like to express that love of colour in my jewellery and I seem to be increasingly drawn to nature as inspiration for my beadwork.

Chrysanthamum Bracelet


Recently I have been more & more drawn to nature as themes for my beadwork including flowers and bird feathers. I was playing with looping seed beads around a bezeled pearl and realised that it looked like a chrysanthamum. I grew up with these flowers in my aunt's garden and constantly in vases at my nan's house, while they aren't my favourite flower they do bring back a lot of happy memories for me. In other news I finally got a daylight task lamp today which I used to light my photo, I am quite pleased and am looking forward to improving my photography!
