This is what my husband said to me one Christmas! I have always enjoyed craft even as a child. My parents would buy me craft projects for Christmas and I taught myself to crochet from a book at the age of 12. So, going back to that sentence one Christmas, it seemed to come out of the blue but that was what my husband said to me. He even showed me a few basic techniques to get me started, not sure where he learnt them from! I started with basic beading and then one day was watching a jewellery programme on the television when resin caught my eye and that was it! I love resin, it's so unique, you can create beautiful different pieces every time. You can combine it with other mediums to get an even more unique look. I have recently started a silver smithing course and I am hoping to be able to incorporate that with my resin too!
Hello, and thank you for visiting my little corner of cyber space. My name is Vivienne Wilkes. I am married to a lovely man, Rob. I have two children and one step-son, a cat, a miniature daschund and a very old lurcher. We have just moved to Wales to try and recreate the 'Good Life'. So we now have chickens, ducks and quail too. I work part time as an Intensive Care nurse. I have been interested in crafts of all sorts since I was a little girl. I taught myself to crochet from a book when I was 12, and went on to knit and cross stitch and so on.
In the last few years I have been captivated by beads and wire and the amazing things you can do and make with them. I make Necklaces, Pendants, Bracelets, Earrings, Rings, Watches, Bookmarks. I use Scale Maille as well,which creates some beautiful pieces. My latest passion is resin, I have some lovely pendants for sale using this beautiful medium. If you would like something made especially just for you, then please email me what you are looking for with sizes, colour preferences and the sort of thing you are looking for and a price guide.
Love & Best Wishes
