JewELLs began when I was made redundant after 15 years and didn't know if I would be able to get another job straight away. After 183 applications and 19 interviews, I finally regained employment.
I had started to make the JewELLs card which is a greeting card handcrafted with ribbon and rhinestones and a pendant on a chain. As a crafter, you evolve and move into different areas and I felt that although I had a unique product, it was still a card which many, many other crafters are producing.
My husband suggested I take up drawing again which I did and found I enjoyed it and felt relaxed whilst sketching. I now concentrate on my drawing and paintings selling the originals as well as some prints.
I mainly sell at craft fairs and online through my website (just contact me if you are interested in one of my pieces of art)
