Described as a textile artist, fine art bookmaker, sometimes a designer maker, I choose ‘paper artist’ to emphasise my love of paper, print and graphics. Everything is made by me. I cut, sew and assemble by hand. I have a computer, digital camera and four old typewriters and my home is a treasure trove of […]
I design and make contemporary fine and costume jewellery using precious metals and recycled materials. I’m currently combining silver with fused plastic bags to make a range of jewellery based on flowers.
My name is Anya and I’m the creator & curator of a compendium of curious creatures made in wire and reclaimed materials. I moved to Hereford in 1994 to study an HND in Design Crafts and never quite managed to leave the beautiful landscape I found here. I am a twister of wire and words […]

I’ve spent the last seven years learning and perfecting my craft, and spent the last four of those at The School of Jewellery In Birmingham. I love to work in precious metals but silver is my favourite. I have an extensive range of tools and enjoy using these to create designs.
I also run workshops from my home in Shropshire to suit all levels. They range from a taster session of 2 hours, where a student can learn very basic jewellery making skills, right up to an advanced level that will enable the student to design and make a piece of jewellery using a number of technical skills. All tools are provided. Metal is bought on the day by the student which is charged on the daily rate, according to a registered bullion dealer. For a whole day course, lunch is provided, and the prices start at £20.00 and go up to £75.00 depending what level the student wishes to achieve.

I design and make contemporary kiln formed glassware including home accessories, personalised gifts, jewellery, wall art and splashbacks.
Exploring colour combinations and mixing translucent, opalescent, iridised and dichroic glass with metal inclusions, I also experiment with different temperatures to create perfectly smooth or highly tactile pieces. My work is predominantly abstract, defined by the fabulous range of colours available. Nature is a major source of inspiration – geological patterns and elements, trees branches and roots, shore findings – but it is the material itself, the way it transforms from solid to liquid and reveals its amazing hues and textures which keeps firing my passion for glass. Originally a mosaic artist, I trained in Bristol and work from my studio near Pershore where I run workshops and have a number of kilns and workbench space available for hire by glass fusing enthusiasts.

I am a fairy tale maker. Storytelling plays an integral part in my work. My ‘Time Flies’ collection uses luxurious silks and free machine embroidery to create a series of magical clocks, both wall and free-standing. Each one is cheerful and fun, completely handmade and unique, and has an original watercolour painting on linen as a shop-front window.
