I thought it'd be fun to introduce a new feature to my blog, where I could showcase some of the work of the wonderful and talented handmade crafters out there! As a jewellery maker myself I am all for purchasing handmade products - of course I still buy from high street retailers too - but there is something extra special and unique about handmade products. Crafters put a lot of time and love into each product they create, something which can't be said for machine manufactured items!
So what's it all about?
Hello Handmade! will focus on a different crafter each post, showcasing their skills and the wonderful items they make. The posts will include things like...
- Designer Interviews
- Tutorials and Tips
- Store discounts
I am hoping this new feature will help to promote the work of independent artists and crafters, and introduce you to some lovely new online stores to shop at!
I'm an artist / crafter - How can I get involved?
If you'd like to be featured drop me an email firstname.lastname@example.org with details of your craft and a link to your online store or Flickr/Facebook if you don't have an e commerce website. I will do my best to get back to you within a couple of days and we will go from there! I will also be approaching crafters myself if their store / products catch my eye.
I look forward to hearing from you!
