Creations was started in 2010 to provide a friendly venue for artists, crafters and designers from the Colchester area to display their work and sell to the public. Sellers are welcomed whether they are new, and looking to sell their work for the first time, or are more experienced. The aim of Creations is to showcase and promote high quality handmade products from talented designers and makers.
I started making my jewellery as a hobby about 4-5 years ago and I was self
taught. I gradually learnt the basic beading stitches to make different designs
over this period until I was confident enough to sell them, not to make a living
but mostly to continue financing a costly hobby. When I thought the quality was up
to a professional standard I wanted, it gave me more courage to attend
exhibitions and craft events.
I make a wide range of different items including
beaded rings, bracelets, earrings and necklaces and these are my own designs
that are different from the normal jewellery that is sold. I sell my items at
very competitive prices, this gives everyone a chance to buy something and I
hope remind them of my work.
