Artistic Philosophy

Reality has limits but our imagination does not, so let it run free and your creativity will flourish.

My imagination helps me create unique work as I strive to produce beautiful things and grow in capability, experience and confidence. My goal as I travel this journey of creativity, is to share my work and inspire others so that they themselves, may create something distinct and original too.

Places to shop (Pins & Beads etc)

  • Extra long Pearl Headed pins (several colours available on the site) - I cut of the heads of these pins (use wire cutters between the large and second pearl and then pull them off.  Hard work at times but worth it for the lovely long pins!! Sometimes you can reuse the top two pearls and cover the cut bit at the bottom with beadcone.)  Floral supplies at Amazon.co.uk  
     (Other pins also available check out their shop, but remember alot of them are very small. You want 5.5cm length minimum)

  1. Thanks, I've bookmarked Alridge Crafts and will pop back here to see links for the Ebay, as I need them. I mostly shop from Beads Direct http://www.beadsdirect.co.uk/ and The Bead Shop Manchester http://www.the-beadshop.co.uk. Not sure how they match up to those you use...but they often have wonderful sales on charms and findings, as well as semi precious beads. Hugs lin
