Following on from last weeks creative spaces feature there are three more folksy sellers featured today. Thanks to Bonita Keay, Hannah Pinnock and Momtaz Begum-Hossain who have let us into their world.
Hannah works with silver and resin, the versatility of which, offers a mixture of many qualities including high gloss finishes & unlimited inclusions, resulting in pieces, which are mystical, lively and enchanting.
This is a Silver Gripped Pebble Love Heart necklace set into blue hand pigmented resin which is then gripped by the handmade brushed sterling silver clasp. View it in Hannah’s Folksy shop here.
She takes pride in hand crafting each piece, every one an individual gem to capture the imagination. Hannah works with found objects using iridescent and translucent pigments to hand dye the resin, and this is where it all takes place. It looks like a great workshop with loads of space.
The second folksy seller is Bonita Keay (Beaky), who lives in a little victorian terrace where she knits, crochets and sews. You can find out more about Bonita via her blog. Here are just a few items in her shop, pin cushions, lavender dolls, bags and scarfletts, i love them all!
