I am a British artist and jewellery designer. with a BA(Hons) Degree in Communication Media/ Graphic Design. I live in Kent, which is well known for its beautiful countryside, and often referred to as 'The garden of England'.
I set up Blighty Beads, as my second Etsy shop, because I've always wanted to sell the beautiful gemstones which I use in my own jewellery designs. It's been a dream of mine for some time now, and I am making that dream a reality.
I have days when it's difficult to make jewellery as I have radial nerve damage, which means that my fingers will not always cooperate when it comes to fine motor skills! So this is where Blighty Beads comes into it's own! On my 'bad' days, I still get to drool over lots of delicious gemstones, and it keeps me busy when I can't be making for my jewellery shop- Bratatouche. I really enjoy being able to run two Etsy shops!
I have a gorgeous husband Jim, and two amazing children, who have always spurred me on with their encouragement and support! My children are in their twenties now, and I am so proud of them both!
We also have a beautiful tabby cat called Dexter, who is very, very spoilt!
