Monday Features

My first feature this week is Sally of Happilyeverartist. Sally, a lampworker, is one of my beading buddies that I meet up with on a regular basis so I am lucky enough to be able to see all her beads first hand - and I've been tempted to buy more than once!

Sally started her affair with art at school where she won several art awards. She started making jewellery to sell at markets at a young age and developed her creativity into paintings as well.

Having bought several lampwork beads Sally was encouraged to give it a go herself - already fascinated with glass she took to lampworking so much that it became her no.1 creative outlet.

As well as selling her beads on Etsy, Sally has her own website where there are more beads plus a gallery of some of her artwork.

My second feature is Trish of Trishalan designs. Primarily selling from her shop based in Petrie, Queensland, and from her her own website, Trish specialises in hand dyed fabric, hand dyed threads, kumihimo supplies and needlework designs.

Trish dyes all her fabric, threads and clothes using the ECO DYEING method, a method that Trish herself developed. This is not tie-dyeing. This method doesn't use string, rubber bands or stitching and also uses much less water than traditional dyeing methods.

Having sold at the same markets as Trish on several occasions her stall also looks so appealing with its lovely range of colours and dyed tees.
