Say a Festive Hello To…Cheap Frills

Tell us a bit about you and what you do/ make….

I am a total magpie, so anything sparkly or pretty gets my attention. I used to love rooting through my Grandma’s jewellery box for charms and trinkets and the cameos always really appealed to me. So much of what I do now is cameo related. I have always had a fascination with faces and the stories they tell.


How would you describe your style?

Eclectic and nostalgic. My jewels seem to range from classic vintage inspired cameos to ultra modern neon skulls. I just create a mishmash of everything I love.

How long have you been making your craft items?

I started in October 2011, with one mission: To make a Queen Elizabeth I cameo ring. I always wanted one! I got a little side tracked, made other things and built up a bit of a collection. When I did eventually make the ring, she was a sell out.


Do you have a best seller? If so what is it?

The animals always seem to go down really well. My other top selling items are probably The Henry VIII charm bracelet, Lord Pug Necklace and the feather bracelets.

What do you enjoy most about your craft?

It’s exciting when I have a brain wave and I’m inspired to make something new. I love rooting around for findings. Meeting new people is fantastic too! I made a very close friend through the craft fairs.


Do you take part in other craft events (fairs, open houses, markets etc…)?

I’ll be at Johnny Loves June, in Shoreham on the 8th Of December and
Jessie Jumbles Marvellous Marketon the 15th December

What are your plans/ ambitions for the future? Or have you already achieved them?

We’ll have to wait and see.


You have previously taken part in The Fairy Tale Fair. Did you enjoy the day?

Yes, it was fabulous!
