I started beading and jewellery making about
5 years ago when I got bored one summer. I've always been fairly arty
but never found one thing to keep me interested, I kinda flitted from
one craft to the next, that is until I found jewellery making!
I really enjoy making pieces for people to wear and I feel like I have my own style. I'm a bit of a magpie and love sparkly things, so All That Sparkles seemed like the perfect name for my company.
I do a lot of bridal jewellery and have branched into special occasion and everyday jewellery. However, in the last 6 months I have started making my own lampwork beads, and in the last week have finally set up my very own glass studio. I'm still new at making beads but hopefully my beads will feature in my jewellery before long.
On a personal note, this isn't my full time job. In fact I'm a medical student and am about 2 years off qualifying as a doctor. It's been my dream to be a doctor since I was a child and I have been in post-high school education for 6 years now as I have done a previous degree. The jewellery making really helps me to relax and unwind, as well as help pay the tuition fees for my course!
I hope you like my work and I hope you feel inspired by what I create.
