I have been designing and making jewellery for over seventeen years now. I own and run my own business, Elderberry Arts and have a shop on Etsy. Further information can be found on my website - www.elderberryarts.co.uk
I have written many jewellery projects and articles for magazines including Creative Crafting, Make Jewellery, Bead and the American magazine Creative Jewellery. My jewellery making tutorials are also available through the website www.jewelrlessons.com and Amazon as ebooks. I have successfully completed NaNoWriMo and CampNaNoWriMo twice each and also have many jewellery making and other design and crafting Hubs.
I have been working with crystals and other aspects of witchcraft and paganism for most of my life as well as studying crystal healing more formally. I have also studied and been attuned to reiki level 1, 2 and Master level.
