Today we speak to Lynne of Definitely-Different who will be joining us once again at our Patcham fair on November 15th. You’ll find her in our entrance hall. Find out more about her…
I have always liked adding my own personalised touches to clothes to make them individual even the simplest things can transform an item.
I like the fact that when I make something using vintage jewellery it will be totally unique. I started off Definitely-Different with wedding creations such as tiaras, bridal cuffs etc but realised that this is a specialist market so I have now diversified a bit and am concentrating on more general jewellery. For example tiaras don’t have to be just for weddings they can be for proms, festivals and other special occasions and with the effect that Downton and the Great Gatsby has on the fashion industry I also make vintage headbands from simple to burlesque!
I also make vintage inspired jewellery so that I hope there is something for everyone
My best seller this year has to be shoe clips which totally transforms the plainest of shoes and can be worn at the front, side or back of the shoes.
My best seller at the Fairy Tale Fair earlier this year was my handmade fimo flower and Swarovski crystal rings
The thing I enjoy most about my work is being creative and making something totally unique
I will think of something festive for the fair maybe gift cards
My ambition for the future would be to make this hobby into a full time career
You can find out more about me on fb and Stall & Craft Collective (I am hoping to set up on Etsy soon).
