Who's who...Ellen Jones

Ellen Jones will be selling her gorgeous hand made, sterling silver and semi precious stone jewellery at the Craft Guerrilla markets. She'll be at all dates apart from the "First Edition".
Ellen has been making jewellery for as long as she can remember. Her true passion is divided by her work in accounts for the music biz. 
Her eye for colour and composition translates effortlessly into classic and wearable pieces suitable for anyone,
be it to wear for a special evening or with every day clobber! She also takes on special commission work. For the gal who's got everything try getting her a special made to order charm bracelet.
"I trained and worked as a silversmith some years ago and at the moment I'm concentrating on working with stones,wire and chain." Ellen said and continued " I work in sterling silver (gold to order)and use the highest quality gemstones and fresh water pearls which I source from all over the world.
I am inspired by colour combinations and form,and pay lots of attention to hand wrapping,wiring and finishing. Right now I really enjoy providing a bespoke service by making charm bracelets and necklaces for adults and children-these can include a person's name, their favourite colour and things. Think on the lines of Mother's day, weddings, new baby, anniversary, teacher leaving well as jewellery for men too.
Contact me for special requests and together we will make a one off,unique piece of jewellery that the lucky recipient will treasure for a long time to come!"
Ellen Jones has boutiques on Etsy and Tuggle

Who's who...Moxie Beauty

Here's another of the participating sellers:
Moxie is owned by a 29 year old American beauty journalist living in London.
Working for an independent glossy magazine, she found that there weren't 
many reputable indie e-tailers in England, though in the States the market for
hand made goods is booming as sites such as Etsy allow small businesses to take root.
"I am hoping to align Moxie with small businesses, beauty bloggers and other
websites to create an online indie network."
Moxie will be at the Beautiful Interiors Craft Guerrilla Market:
Preview Party (by invitation only) Sunday 30th April starting 6.30pm
Second Edition, Saturday 31st May 10am - 5.30pm

Who's who... The White Verandah

Here's a sneak preview! Check out the bios of some of the participating sellers:

But towards the end of the year she decided to combine her love of crafting with her love of vintage collectables and launched her own web site where she sells a range of vintage glass,ceramics,textiles,jewellery and bags along side her collection of vintage inspired hand made cushions,bags and accessories.
