I have been featuring people who are close to me, and you couldn't get closer than my very own daughter! Tayla started making jewellery about 2 years ago whilst I was still doing the weekend markets. She would string up these gorgeous bracelets, even doing the crimps and findings herself. Since then she has started to play with wire (yep, my tools are now no longer my own!). She is self entirely self-taught - watching with an eagle eye when I create something and adapting the technique to her own style. Looking at her fabulous style and flair - you wouldn't know that she was only 14 - her sharp eye for colour and creativity ... I can't wait to see how far this takes her. She now sells her creations to family, friends and at school (and does very well!).
Here is an example of Tayla's work.
