A little background for my first blog I think.......My name is Gillian (as you probably have already guessed) and I love making jewellery, so much so that in 2010 after my sister was diagnosed with breast cancer (and after me torturing the doctor for a few months becasue I thought I had the same...turns out I was parnoid BUT can you blame me!!) I decided life was to short so give up a well paid full time job to chase what I enjoyed doing. Honestly it was and still is harder than I had imagined but am so much happier for doing so and it's beginning to make me a living too which always helps!!!
Thankfully my sister has beat the breast cancer and is well and fit ...which is AMAZING because she is not only my extra special sister but my bestest friend in the whole world.
I had been making and playing about with jewellery for a few years before giving up my job but it was only as a hobby. Now I make fingerprint jewellery, and fashion jewellery and also supply other brands such as Tales From The Earth, Dew, and Fashion Jewellery. With the new addition of Children's jewellery from Jo in the next couple of weeks.
I have a website www.diavolojewellery.co.uk and an ebay store http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Diavolo-Jewellery?_rdc=1 so please feel free to take a look and any suggestions on improving my site would be welcome x x
In future blogs I will be sharing some jewellery making tips and projects with you.
This is a picure of my sister and me. I'm the one with very RED hair :-( I haven't always had red hair mind (usually blonde) but had a mad five minutes where I thought it would be a good idea t g red.........OMG I regret it now and am planning on going back blond soon but need for the redness to die down a little first...it does goes quite well with my theme though don't it?
Thanks for taking a look at my blog and don't forget to visit again for jewellery making tips and projects.
