made by Rose

category: Jewellery and Silverware   Mixed Media and Recycled   

region: North West   

I create jewellery with a playful feel that is a pleasure to wear and own, finding inspiration in the things I love to collect, vintage fabrics, buttons and natural forms collected on walks near my home. I studied Jewellery Design and Making BA Hons at Buckinghamshire Chilterns University, graduating in 2007. Since then I have been producing my jewellery and sell through galleries and individual boutiques.
My collection includes charm bracelets, earrings and necklaces, each one slightly different due to the hand made elements and precious vintage buttons that are in limited supply. I first crochet, knot or plait natural hemp/cotton cord to form the base for my pieces. Using copper and silver wire, I create planished charms in a variety of organic shapes, some oxidised. Vintage buttons and beads along with etched wooden veneer charms that feature my own intricate organic designs complete the pieces.

Paper, Paint & Clay Studio

category: Ceramics   Mixed Media and Recycled   Paper   

region: North West   

I make wall sculptures out of drift wood branches, ceramic bowls and platters wrapped in papier-mâché and ceramic collages that hint at a story. I love combining different textures to create very tactile pieces. My work is influenced by the weatherworn surfaces of the Manx landscape, the coastline, and my love of the sea, then wrapped with papier-mâché. The papier-mâché is a wrapping of love! It’s a memory of my sister and I, who with great care and glee unwrapped the Christmas decorations. These wonderful jewels had been so carefully folded in old newspaper ‘skins’, now my papier-mâché skins! My repeatedly worked surfaces of clay are under constant revision, referencing the endless remaking of the shoreline, then decorated with oxides, under glazes, glazes and gold lustre.

Paula Powell Original Artwork and Handmade Cards

category: Mixed Media and Recycled   Paper   

region: North West   

Paula Powell Original Artwork and Handmade Cards offers products with three aspects: Growing – artwork and accessories for children ; Living – artwork for the home; Loving – keepsakes and stationery for celebrations. My work originates from a love of memories associated with garments, fabrics and images. Fragments of lives, histories held in items often thrown away. This includes children’s clothes; the fabrics, prints and memories they hold.

My range includes canvases, framed artwork, hangings, memory boxes, pomanders, cards and stationery. Applique techniques, hand and free motion embroidery combine with paper, wax and new, painted or recycled fabrics and garments. Ribbons, buttons, found objects and vintage lace are firm favourites. Stitch brings it all together by adding names, dates or messages to create a unique, personal gift.

Pauline Townsend Silk Painter

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: North West   

I have been a professional silk painter & tutor for 17 years. I first came across silk painting whilst studying surface pattern design and got hooked on the technique and taught myself. I am an active member of the Guild of Silk Painters and Silk Painters International and teach a wide range of workshops on the subject.

I paint using the traditional resist technique, this is where the design is outlined on the silk using a resist medium called gutta, before being painted & fixed. My main subject areas are flowers, stylised buildings & landscapes.
