I always think it`s nice to find out a little bit about the person behind the shop and what inspires them.
Ailsa`s bio says:
I grew up trying new crafts on a regular basis, I used to cross stitch, make jewellery, lace making etc. anything my mum did I tried!! The one thing I loved was beads and turning them in fabulous pieces of jewellery for myself.
I still have many of those pieces of jewellery!!! As I got older and left home I left the crafting behind.... until a couple of years ago. I suddenly remembered how I used to feel when I made jewellery and decided to take it up again and thus Bramalfie Beads Etc was born.
I can spend hours in a bead shop but this time I wanted to make my own beads, I thought about paper beads and then metal clay but finally settled on polymer clay something I had used as a kid. I am constantly amazed by what you can create with polymer clay, the range of colours is endless and the number of different techniques seems to be never ending too!!
I am constantly finding new things to try but I keep coming back to my favourite technique mokume gane!! If anyone is wondering where the name came from - it is an amalgamation of my dogs names, Bramble and Alfie!!
Ailsa has a wide range of amazing creations in her shop, a testament to her passion. Do have a browse, there are even Christmas items for those who like to get ahead. Oh and did I mention she has a sale..... 10% off with the coupon code: CIJUK10.
