Meet the next 10 Talented Artists Joining the online CRAFTfest extravaganza in September 2012 (TEAL Group Blog Post 2)

The Old Button
by Sharon Lloyd
I make an eclectic mix of high quality hand crafted items for children and the home, combining two of my
passions - creating new designs and a thrifty use of materials. I like to use both new and recycled fabrics including 100% cotton, silk and linen mixtures
together with scraps from my ever expanding hamper of interesting fabrics that is constantly topped up by my friends and family.
As I love the design aspect of creating, I am always coming up with new ideas for products and only make a limited number. Often items are unique, as I love playing with fabric and colour combinations, and adding different trims. And of course, I try and incorporate a old button or two into each item I make.
by Paul Griffiths
Welcome to norfolkwoodcrafts, my name is Paul and all my items are handmade in my North
Norfolk workshop using reclaimed timber and veneers. I make Jewellery boxes,
Cribbage box sets, writing slopes and chess boards.
I hope you find something to tempt you and thankyou for looking.
Lottie of London Jewellery
by Clare Lewis
My name is Clare Lewis, I am a jewellery designer from South London. All my jewellery is individually handcrafted here in the UK, using my favourite medium Polymer Clay. Polymer Clay features in many of my designed pieces and is perfect for allowing me to explore my love of colours. I take my inspiration from
everyday life to experiment with colour and I strive to create jewellery that is bold and unique, the majority of my items are original and
occasionally I create limited edition themed items.

Laura Swain
by Dream of Silver
I've always enjoyed making jewellery - as a little girl I used to love opening up a box of beads and deciding what to make. Fast-forward 25 years and I now run Dream of Silver from my small jewellery workshop in a pretty village near York. I design and make a range of handcrafted wearable silver jewellery that can be worn every day. Each item is individually handcrafted with love and care, and comes packaged in a gift boxed tied with pink ribbon. My work has been featured in various magazines including Marie Claire and Wedding Ideas.

Ellorias Boutique

by Shannan and Jacqueline Inglis
Ellorias Boutique is the story of Jacqueline and Shannan, mother and daughter, designers, writer,
life-long flower lovers. We are inspired by natural forms and influenced by cultural references from bygone and contemporary eras. We create experimental yet wearable collections of handcrafted one-of-a-kind and limited edition pieces, that reference the renaissance and art deco periods and bring a modern edge to vintage style. We’re both spurred on by colour, pattern and surface
texture and use a combination of muted and bright palettes to converge and radiate our aesthetic desires.
