Wooden Angels

This is one of my wooden angels that I create for the wall. They come with all sorts of different wings, tin straight or curvy, gilded in bronze, silver or gold, paint effect to look like tin. You can have them in almost any colour you wish. I make them with wire hair with beads or sequins in, tin star or heart halos, tin twig hair or natural twigs. If you want a slightly flirty one you can have an ankle bracelet! The decoration on the angel can vary as they are all tin decs (which I buy from the US). I have painted some in two colours to create a contrast so the weight of colour and added embellishments sits at the bottom. One lady had me adapt the design to create a mermaid and another a fairy godmother for a little ones christening! Each angel is stamped with a number, my name and comes with a tag to explain the care and its originality.
Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer
This is one of my christmas decorations
from the 2005 collection. I try not to repeat the designs from year to year. I create about 10 different decortions each year from a mixture of wood and fabric. I am usually late in designing things, starting around August and then having a manic rush for christmas! Each year I swear I will start early and get them completed before the summer, hum here we are nearing the end of June and I still haven't started!!

A Fishy Creation

This is one of my peg hooks that is hanging in the children's bathroom. We use them to hang up their towels. I can create them in any style or design and in any colour. You can have plain or patterned to suit your taste.
