About Wendy & Her Work
Hi I'm Sharons friend, Wendy, sorry there is no picture of me, but I thought You might prefer to look at my Work!I'm a freelance artist and designer specialising in crafts and mural work.I had this idea some time ago, to combine all sorts of materials I had lying around my house to try and make something quite unusual,something very glitzy and something I hadn't tried making before.Before I knew it I had a house full of fairies, mermaids and angels, which were soon joined by reycycled glassware to which I added tons of glitter and gems.People started taking an interest and I started flying off around the world.
Felt and flymo Jewellrey
Another area as you can see that I started delving into was jewelrey making, often making bespoke pieces.The more I dug into old boxes and bags around the house the more material I found to work with!Now any item of ceramic, glass,wood or anything else is fair game for glitzing up!

My newest love is making treasure frames.These are miror or picture frames containing literally hundreds of tiny treasures, manmade and natural, shells, buttons, tiny toys, broken jewellrey, coins .... brought together to produce a spectacular feast!
I also run workshops, recently working with over with 500 people in one week-phew!I work with groups and offer private tution if needed.My mural work is seen in private homes, schools museums and nurseries in the UK and abroad.With all this going on I've no idea how I find time to chase around after my 3 teens, two cats, tortoise and my gorgeous husband!
Thanks for taking the time to read and looks at this, I would love to get your feedback on my work as I am considering selling online.If you would like to order one of my fairies, mermaids or angels and would like me to email you some of my designs, just email sharon @ firstname.lastname@example.org with your email and I will be in touch. I can ship to you.Or if you are local to Lancashire you can collect your purchase or commisions or pop along to one of my private viewings to get up close and personal with my work and enjoy a mince pie.May I wish you all a wonderful Christmas and a great 2010.Wendy xx
