@trinket_box) on twitter for over a year now and I have always loved her shop on Folksy full of pretty jewellery. I have just treated my self to some of her beautiful earrings ('earrings are my one weakness' ~ Dorcas Lane) and I can't wait for them to arrive.
8 words that most describe you?
I had to ask my boyfriend this! He said nice, creative, active, intelligent, honest, caring, thoughtful, lovely [awhh, haha]
What do you make?
I make jewellery, and I love it :)
What new craft would you like to try?
Well, I'm doing a silversmithing class beginning of October, which I'm really looking forward to. Also want to learn how to crochet - I recently bought myself a little kit to make a crochet bracelet, I need to try it out!
What is the best present someone has ever given you?
Two of my friends clubbed together and bought me a Tiffany pendant for my 22nd birthday, and my boyfriend bought me Tiffany earrings for my last birthday. I'm a bit of a Tiffany fiend! I've been given lots of lovely presents, though.
When you were a kid what did you want to be when you grew up?
Either a dancer/dance teacher or a princess...
What’s on the walls in your room?
I have art work by an amazing artist called Kurt Halsey. See his work at kurthalsey.com. I've got prints and posters up, plus two originals - a sketch and a sculpture of a kitty. I also have a lovely canvas print of Jack Sparrow :) I used to have a painting my friend made me for my birthday a few years ago, I need to put it up again.
Were you named after anyone?
My middle name is Alice, which was my great grandmother's name.
Do you have any nick-names?
I've acquired loads over the years. Soapy-suds zero [don't ask], Saf, Soapy, Sophie Alice Bexter [hate that one, so silly], Phee, Frankie...there's probably more, I just can't think!
shop and blog!
