Today we welcome back Jelly Roos and her cute and quirky creations! Find out more about her below…
“Nothing pleases me more than creating a unique personal item from scratch”– Natasha, Jelly Roos.
Tell us a bit about you and what you do/ make….
I’m a mum of three who loves creating, my children are my inspiration daily and my support with regular comments of ‘can you make one for me?!’ From a fairly formal art education at GCSE and Foundation level, my creativity has since taken a more organic path. Making things for my children, using my creativity in my jobs and now finally releasing some of the ideas filling up my head into the world of Jelly Roos.
I like to make beautiful, useful objects and this forms the bases of my designs. Nothing pleases me more than creating a unique personal item from scratch and so many of my items have individual details that I don’t reproduce.
How would you describe your style?
Unique, cute and colourful.
How long have you been making your craft items?
I’ve been working under the guise of Jelly Roos for about a year now.
Do you have a best seller? If so what is it?
Its changing all the time, but blankets and book bugs are popular commissions.
What do you enjoy most about your craft?
I love the design process from that spark of an idea, making a pattern and finally creating and adding those impulsive details. I enjoy that nothing is static and I can be making different items every day.
Do you take part in other craft events (fairs, open houses, markets etc…)?
I’m trying out different fairs all around Sussex, I’ve exhibited at Brighton craft fair and others outside of Brighton. I will be in Seaford 24th-26th August.
What are your plans/ ambitions for the future? Or have you already achieved them?
To continue pleasing people with my creations and to broaden my online presence.
You have previously taken part in The Fairy Tale Fair. Did you enjoy the day?
It was such a good atmosphere with great fellow stall holders, lots of visitors through the doors and such brilliant organization.
