I am an avid 'maker'......most of my items are brooches, created by fine knitting, crochet, bead work, wet felting and more recently by melting and singeing fabrics such as satin, chiffon and polyester. I make small knitted toys, currently sheep and rabbits.


I also create decorative pieces from beach combed materials, weaving baskets and garlands with beach rope, found objects and shells.
