This blog will remain here for Sunday and Monday as I am away.
A little insight into Di of Adien Crafts who is this weeks British Crafters Shop of the Week.
Di`s bio says.
I joined Etsy in 2010 but have only just opened my Shop here (April 2012) My shop name Adien Crafts is an anagram of my name Diane. I'm in the UK in a small town called Keynsham, half way between Bristol and Bath.
I love to make things, I sell mostly jewellery online but I also make cards and do a lot of sewing. Semi-precious gemstones are my favourites to work with, I love what Mother Nature has given us to work with, some stones are just amazing with their colours and patterns so I enjoy designing pieces to show them off in their full glory. I also make pieces using other gorgeous beads I come across and can't resist!
I love trying new techniques and the great thing about craft work is that there is always something new to learn - the possibilities are endless!
I am happy to make anything to order, I take commissions for all sorts of pieces from simple earrings in a specific colour to my current project which is a special rosary for a special customer, please contact me if you'd like me to make something for you.
I spent many years in retail, and I enjoy a spot of retail therapy myself - my opinion is that the experience of buying should be a special one, I hope my customers all feel special from the moment they order to the moment they receive their nicely wrapped parcel.
Do have a browse in Di`s shop at her beautiful jewellery which is a testament to her passion for her craft. Have a look too, in all these wonderful shops, you never know what treasures you will find.

A poem from my holiday.
Islands dotted across the bay,
many more in the distance, fading away.
A speedboat races by in a flash
wonder what`s behind the mad dash.
Maybe it`s just for the thrill of speed,
or is he racing to stay in the lead?
Tiny sail boats line up for a race,
wonder if they`ll set a good pace.
They look like toys from up here
even so, they are still very clear.
A ferry steaming from one side to the other
across the expanse and there`s another.
A dredger working, filling a barge,
cannot believe the size, it`s so large.
A great big bay, a natural harbour here,
they constantly work hard to keep it clear.
One stretch of water, so much going on
a few more hours and we`ll be gone!!
