Please describe your product range.
I make a collection of jewellery including rings, necklaces, bracelets, bangles and earrings. I also make wine glass charms. The jewellery includes items made from glass, crystal, metal, ceramic and resin beads, as well as items made with sterling silver and semi-precious gemstones. My designs range from the modern and contemporary through to more traditional style pieces evocative of bygone eras.

I started an Etsy shop because…
I was encouraged by friends and family to showcase my designs to a wider audience, having been making bespoke items for them for a while. A friend introduced me to Etsy as the ideal venue to sell my creations and demonstrate my passion and enthusiasm for jewellery.

I feel inspired by…
My designs are very often inspired by the seasons and nature – the beautiful colours of the flowers in my garden are frequently my inspiration. I have a sketch book for all my design ideas and it has not been unknown for me to get up in the middle of the night to start sketching and note down an idea I have had for a design! It’s also truly inspirational knowing you have created something that has delighted a customer. One of my very first sales was a bespoke item I created for a customer as a gift for their friend. The customer got in touch afterwards to say that the person it was a gift for was delighted when they received it and that was lovely.

When I’m working on Etsy, I like to listen to…
This can really vary – anything from Pendulum to Shawn Colvin to Kate Bush – a fairly eclectic mix!

What will you have for sale at Etsy Made Local?
I will have my full range of jewellery including fashion & semi precious items as well as some very sparkly seasonal wine glass charms, with both glass and Swarovski Elements™ crystal beads.
