Blue Team #Christmas #craftfest Blog - Part 1

Introducing some of the amazing stalls taking part in the Nov/Dec Christmas 2014 #Craftfest event. Today we have sneak previews from Enamels by Francis Hayes of Ormesby, Silver Sensations and Strombolitwo.


Enamels by Francis Hayes of Ormesby

I make enamel jewellery and ornaments by fusing glass to a copper base. To do this I build up thin layers of powdered glass on the copper, firing each layer to red heat in a kiln. Typically every piece will have a minimum of five layers and many will have more than that. Each piece is unique and cannot be repeated.

Silver Sensations

For Handmade Jewellery As Individual As You. 
I'm Lynne & all Silver Sensations jewellery is handmade by me. Every piece of jewellery has been lovingly handmade with attention to detail & using only the highest quality genuine Sterling Silver, Semi Precious Gemstones, Freshwater Pearls, Swarovski Pearls & Crystals. I only create a limited number of each design & some will be one of a kind.
