Dear fellow bloggers,I have finally taken the plunge after months of procrastinating.This is my first blog.
I am a art jeweler from South Wales though I am originally from the Inner Hebrides in Scotland.
I have two shops on Etsy,crystalriverbeads and silverpuss.I also have a tiny presence on Folksy and Misi.
I have realised recently that I need to spread my wings creatively.I am hoping to exhibit in the Valleys this summer and move into local craft shows.I have started to collaborate with a new and very talented lampworker and ceramic artist from Wales,Debra Roberts.I also make some of my own beads and buy from fellow Etsians as well.Watch me begin to establish myself as a leader of the pack in Wales over the next year.Come follow me!All the best,Anne.
