I have been designing and making jewellery for over twelve years now. I own and run my own business, Elderberry Arts. Mainly the jewellery I make now is for commisions only but occassionally I do make pieces for general sale. Further information can be found on my website - www.elderberryarts.co.uk

I have written many jewellery projects and articles for magazines including Creative Crafting, Make Jewellery, Bead and the American magazine Creative Jewellery. My jewellery making tutorials are also avaliable through the website www.jewelrlessons.com and Amazon as ebooks.
I have successfully compeleted NaNoWriMo and CampNaNoWriMo twice each and also have many jewellery making and other design and crafting Hubs.

I love photography and prefer being behind the camera than in front! I take a lot of landscape, black & white and macro shots. I love black and white photos, there is something about them that colour just doesn't have and macro photos show a whole new world we would normally pass by. I have had a few photos placed in online competitions and have also had pictures published in The Grimsby Telegraph several times.

I have studied childhood and youth studies, autism and various psychology courses with The Open University and have level 3 and 4 diplomas in special educational needs and level 3 diplomas in vegan and vegetarian nutrition and Crystal healing and have also studies art therapy, and homeopathy. I have 18 years experience caring for children who have special needs as well as my own personal experience. I have also studied and been attuned to reiki level 1 and 2.

Love pretty much anything creative - photography, jewellery making, sewing, cookery, crafts, alternative therapies and growing my own fruit and veg. Like old London buses, ladybirds, goats, elephants, wind turbines, Long necks, the sea, nature and a million other things :)
Love music, especially live music. Would love to see Kings of Leon, Maroon 5... and Marillion, Pink and Jack Johnson again ♥
