When did you first start making jewelry and how did you learn?

I have always enjoyed making things, and went to university to stuy fine art, but I didn't start making jewellery until I was in my twenties. I am mainly self taught, but went on a few short courses for things like silver-smithing and metal clay.

Can you remember the first piece you made?

I think the firdt pieces I made were for my family- a brooch for my Nana and a pair of earrings for my Mum. They used seed beads and looking back, they were terribly made and used all the wrong materials!

Where do you look for inspiration?

I have a lot of art, craft and design books that I refer to and I'm addicted to Pinterest, but I have to say, I tend to get my ideas from the materials. I like play about with combinations of wire and beads to see what happens!

What's your craft space like and how do you organize your supplies?

I love pretty much all crafts, although I'm pretty useless at paper-cutting and knitting, crochet and anything else that involves intricate pattern tends to confuse me. My craft space is a small extension to my kitchen, crammed full of supplies that I have been collecting since I was about 11.

What music/podcasts/TV shows do you love to craft along to?

I usually have either a radio station playing 90's music, the TV on quietly or I sometimes listen to the Harry Potter audio-books as I work.

Do you do any other crafts and what are your hobbies?

I make jewellery to sell on Etsy and at craft fairs. Other than crafty things, I love my cats (they feature heavily on my Instagram!), meeting up with friends for tea and cake, getting out into the countryside, oh and naps.
