Tell us a bit about you and what you do/ make….
Hello! I’m Kirstin, I make shrink plastic jewelery. I’m a little obsessed with birds and all things vintage so I tend to draw these things and make them into brooches, rings, necklaces etc
How long have you been making your craft items?
I’ve been using shrink plastic for about 2 years now, I’m a trained silversmith but at the moment I prefer drawing and painting so this material is the perfect thing for me!
Do you have a best seller? If so what is it? And do you have some
special festive items planned to sell?
My best sellers are my hand painted bird earrings. I’m very excited about christmas, I’ve never made any specifically festive items so this year I’m trying a few new pieces. Basically I’ve drawn Santa hats on everything!
What do you enjoy most about your craft?
I love creating things and it makes me very happy when someone’s face lights up because of something I’ve created.
Do you take part in other craft events (fairs, open houses, markets etc…)?
I’m a full-time maker so yes I take part in many fairs and events. I’ll be at Craftaganza and Craftyfox market in December and at the Powder Christmas fair later this month.
What are your plans/ ambitions for the future? Or have you already
Well my plan was to do this full-time and luckily I’ve achieved that, now I just want to keep growing as a business and keep enjoying it!
Sum up what Christmas is to you in 5 words or less!:
Mulled wine, fairy lights, christmas music, food, loved ones.
Any other comments you wish to make:
I love christmas!
