Hello beautiful woman… I want to talk to you!
Someone told me you are a little sad because it is getting close to Valentine’s Day and you don’t have a partner… Is this true?
Let me inttoduce myself – Im Sarah Kay, an artist from the Shetland Islands. Which is the most northerly set off Islands belonging to the UK
I work from my studio located in Scalloway, Shetland which is open to visitors. It is situated next to my large hillside garden which is also open to visitors as part of Scotlands gardens, raising money for charity.
I am delighted to be part of The British craft house and thank you for looking at my shop! Please note it will be kept up to date and fully sticked with new items as they become available.
How is everyone coping?

Hello and welcome to my unique and colourful world of jewellery making. Please read on …

Rock and Metal Boutique jewellery is inspired by bohemian influence with a twist of the everyday. A free spirited collection of jewellery with romantic style, patterns and warm earthy beautiful colours.
Welcome all to my British Craft House blog. My first post is all about how I came to love embroidery and stitch my mini embroidered art work jewellery.
Hello my name is Camilla, a bit of background on how I started making Jewellery.
I took up knitting and crocheting when I was a child, and I have always loved making things. As time went by I put my artistic leanings to one side and chose a career in computers, and later went on to raise a family. My children have now grown up and no longer need my time, so I decided six years ago to return to my creative side, and began making jewellery – using my knitting and crocheting skills to make a different type of Jewellery.
I love to create new ways of using different threads, wire and beads and to juxtapose different colours in my jewellery. Choosing colour combinations is exciting as well as therapeutic. Inspiration comes from all around me, whether I’m walking through the woods and fields, by the sea, with my dogs, down the high street, through the shops, or looking at the new season’s clothes.
I took up Japanese Braiding (Kumihimo) five years ago to add to my jewellery skills. This offers another way of using different textured threads and beads, adding a vast array of techniques and colour combinations to create interesting pieces of jewellery. The colours and effects are endless.
In 2016 I got excepted by the Surrey Guild of Craftsmen, to become a Member and to sell my Jewellery through their Gallery, which I was thrilled about.
Everything I make is a one-off and is never repeated, each piece is unique to the person who buys it.
