Her 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!!

The moon rises oh so high
majestically through the night sky.
Stars twinkling to light the way
still don`t make it light as day.
Like a canopy showing each tiny light
against the dark velvet of the night.
They`ve seen so much history
yet still they are a mystery.
To uncover the secrets we strive
the adventure makes us feel alive.
Constantly we stand and stare
wondering who else is out there!!
Both from Bramalfie Beads etc.
