Knowing I'll see my customers; whether that's doing classes, one to one jewellery making or jewellery repairs.
Best piece of advice you've been given?
Take up beading - it's good for your soul!
Tell me a little known fact about yourself:
I'm very good at falling over at inopportune moments. A few years back, I was at the bus stop with bags of shopping and my daughter. I managed to fall over with the contents of my shopping bags flying everywhere under the bus on the pavement. My daughter still laughs about it today
What makes you proud?
All my children , obviously , getting my jewellery making diplomas during lockdown and running my shop for seven years
What do you do for fun outside work:
I love spending time with my granddaughter, gardening and spending time with my family. I also love going for nice walks with the best dog ever Mylz
