Craftical Collective

The 'Craftical Collective' are a group of four very talented girls from LIverpool. I discovered there work at Between them there is a jeweller, a bead stringer, seed-bead artist and they can paint and make soap too!!!!!!! There really is no end to their talents.

This beautifully detailed and delicate fabric chocker retails at just $10 which is about £5.00. It is made from
soft black fabric which is adorned with delicately frayed hot pink and green organza. The detail added in the centre is a small cluster of faux pearls.

This is a really striking
pendant made of sea glass encased artistically in sterling silver wire.
What makes this piece more
interesting is the story (or mystery?) behind the sea glass. The stone was found washed up on Crosby beach in Liverpool (currently home to the stunning Anthony Gormley statues) and only it knows of it's amazing journey to those shores! The piece is available at $30 which is about £15.25

This stunning bag is also made by the 'Craftical Collective'
It was made from a pair of unworn jeans that needed a new purpose in life! It is decorated with a complimentary design of circles sewn in pretty orange silk thread for an amazing result. At just $20 or £10 it is really amazing!

This beautifully detailed bracelet is made from a staggering 150 beads on a gunmetal chain. The amount of work that has gone into making this beautiful piece is simply amazing and the girls are selling it for just $30 or about £15.25.

The girls will also happily take on bespoke work making unique hand crafted items especially for you. So, please visit there shop for a browse around and bookmark it for any future visits....

I would like to introduce you to the wonderful world of Numpty.

This fellow etsy seller has the most fantastic imagination making jewellery from novelty items. Like this really cool Scrabble tile hairclip.

These Lego brick cufflinks are another favourite of mine....I am eyeing them up for a christmas pressie for my husband. He would adore them.

The prices are ridiculously reasonable!! With the majority of her creations being $8 - $10. If anyone is stuck for gift ideas give her store a visit you will not be disappointed.
click on the link on the right to numptyland.......
Although the prices are given in dollars Numpty is based in the UK but, ships goods internationally.


They always say artist become obsessed with one subject/theme...Well, I think it's true.

For about the last fifteen years I have got the most pleasure from painting fruit!?!? I think I may be a little mad... I am obsessed with the colours and textures....

What are you obsessed with????

V2 HOORAY!!!!!!

Etsy has just launched V2 (version two!)

It is bigger and better than ever before...... If you haven't visited us yet come and see....

Now is the ideal time to get all your christmas gifts.

About me!!

I suppose I should really tell a little about me! I am 29 years old and live on the wirral in the UK. I live my husband of two years and life treats us well....
I have a proper job during the day but, in my spare time I like to exercise my creative side. I studied art at university and after graduating promptly stopped doing anything remotely artist!!!

My creative juices started flowing again when I got married and in an effort to save some cash I decided to make all the invites, table plan, favours, etc.

Rather vainly heres a piccie of me on our wedding day...(Well, I wasn't going to post a horrid one was I?)

Anyway, one thing led to another and after some persuasion I opened my Etsy shop!! I decided to start this blog as a way to promote my etsy shop....hence, the fact that all my previous posts have been about my work. I also, want to use it as way to promote other artists work which I like and other Etsy sellers.

This is my new shop banner design, I spent most of the day trying to sort it out. It took ages, I am hopeless on computers!!!!!!!!!!! Anyway, looks good in my shop...

Do you believe in Fairies???

Believe in the Fairies who make dreams come true, Believe in the wonder the stars and the moon, Believe in the magic from the faeries above. They dance on the flowers and sing songs of love, And if you believe and always stay true, the faeries will be there to watch over you.
