Hi I'm Hazel & I started making jewellery in 2014 when i couldn't find jewellery that complimented my unique bridal style!! I work part time on my jewellery business along side my very rewarding job being a teaching assistant in an SEN school.
I'am very lucky to live right near Bournemouth beach with my supportive Husband Oli & our very fluffy lion head bunny Zelda.
I'm passionate about buying vintage clothing & shopping from small local businesses. I try to be as eco friendly as I can be & I'am vegan.
I love making jewellery inspired by my love of nature & vintage fashion but I do get inspired by anything & at anytime!
When I began making jewellery I did a lot of beading & making simple dangle earrings for family & friends before opening my first Etsy shop in 2015.
During that time i have tried out many different techniques & have used loads of different materials including polymer clay & resin making mostly fashion jewellery. Whilst I enjoyed working with these materials & designs I never felt that I could make the jewellery that I truly wanted to. I was limited to what charms, beads & findings were available.
I knew about silver clay for sometime & had done some online learning about it but it wasn't until the start of 2020 that I finally bought my first pack & had a play around with it. It was exciting but nerve wracking as it cost so much more than previous materials but I can truly say that I have found my medium to work with. I love that I can create a design completley from the beginning, it gives me (& my customers) so much creative freedom.
I have many plans, designs & techniques that I want to use with my silver clay work & look forward to the journey ahead.
