About Me

North West, United Kingdom
I am keen crafter, with a particular fondness for pearls and all things shiny and a dream that one day I might just own that little shop I've always wanted to run. I am forever making something whether it's some cards, jewellery or something knitted... the devil makes work for idle hands, but mine are rarely idle!

It's all changing...

So much has changed for me in the last 2 years - I now have two children for a start! I am also a SAHM now and have decided to use the opportunity to work on my handmade jewellery. As part of this I have decided to have a complete overhaul and rebranding. So, Concept Design Form is now Poppy Sparkles (inspired by my gorgeous daughter, Poppy).

I have a website undergoing construction, thanks to my husband - it is so handy having someone who is handy with web design around! I have also opened a new Folksy shop - Poppy Sparkles - full of lovely handmade jewellery and accessories. I am contemplating opening further shops at other online handcrafted websites, but for now am going to just concentrate on Folksy.

I have also started a new Facebook page for Poppy Sparkles - check it out and become a fan to stay ahead of what is being created.

I am also keen to progress with my jewellery making and am going to embark on working with wire. I love unusual earhooks, especially oversized ones and hope that by making my own I can create soem lovely statement pieces.

As yet I am undecided as to whether to continue blogging - time is a real premium with 2 children under 2 and when I do have some time I find myself wanting to create jewellery rather than blog.

I do hope that you will check out Poppy Sparkles and let me know what you think.
