A bit about me:

I am a self taught jewellery maker living in Exeter in the beautiful county of Devon with my husband and cat.
I started making jewellery as a hobby but once it got out of hand I started selling at local fairs and opened my Etsy shop in 2011. I love creating one-of-a-kind pieces and get my inspiration from vintage styles and the natural world. I have very eclectic tastes and therefore started adding to my range with hand sewn products including corsages and pin cushions.
I learnt to sew and cross stitch when I was at school. Despite owning a sewing machine I still prefer to hand sew which is why I started using and then making pin cushions.
I am giving away one of my owl pin cushions which is made from a variety of scraps of material. He has a weight inside to keep him from toppling over and a faux leather bottom to make him durable. I hope you can give him a good home. ♥

Closing date is Sunday 20th May GMT London 8pm.
