Rebecca King Photography

Having studied photography intermittently over the last 10 years, I am now concentrating on cameraless images using flowers, foliage, chemically treated paper and natural light.

What you see are the colours, patterns and effects that emerge at random during the development, which are then captured by photography. Each image is unique. 

Prints can be purchased unframed, in slip mounts or framed in a number of ways. Different sizes can be ordered to suit your spaceCards are also available.

Please enquire for different options and prices, including matching cushions

Lotus Knits

Hi, my name is Ally and welcome to Lotus Knits.

I started knitting on the 30th March, my first day of Covid-19 lockdown. I have a very busy and incredibly demanding job and knew that I would struggle to get through lockdown if I didn’t keep myself busy and bought myself at the grand old age of 49 years old, my first knitting kit. I became addicted pretty much the day I picked up my first needles!

I decided at this stage, that whatever I made during lockdown I would try to sell and donate 50% of the money to the NHS. I started knitting cacti mostly because I love plants and nature and was told by friends and family that they were cute and would make perfect gifts (especially for those people who kill all living plants!). I very quickly started to buy tonnes of new patterns and make lots of other gift items. I now have a great and every growing selection of knitted cacti, heart keyrings, egg cosies, rainbows and also make very special macramé feather keyrings/bag accessories.

I have had lots of requests for and sold quite a few bespoke feather keyrings as to many, the sign of a feather along your path can offer validation and comfort from someone dear to you who has passed. Each colour has a very special meaning, please feel free to look at the description of these on my Instagram and Facebook pages.
I also have a lovely selection of recycled cotton face/dish cloths – eco friendly, machine washable and plastic free!
In addition to my new hobby, which I love, I have always been a very keen photographer and now have decided to make blank greeting cards from my favourite nature photographs. They are as you will see, photos of farmland, sunsets, wild birds, insects and plants/flowers. All of these are my own photographs and make truly stunning cards (If I do say so myself!)

I create handmade, affordable gifts for many occasions; recent orders have included gifts for a rainbow baby, christening present, house warming presents and thank you gifts for NHS workers.

I never knew I had this artistic, creative side to me but I’m so glad for this opportunity to realise it. Now I am back at work, I am finding this a great way to de-stress. I hope you enjoy my products and I look forward to hearing from you.

Resin Expectations

I’m Kelly, 44 yrs old living in Farnham, Surrey. I work part time, giving me time to craft along side my job. I have been working with resin since the beginning of last year, and selling online via Etsy and my Facebook page since around March. I also have space in the Craft Coop shop in Camberley, and most recently, have opened a shop on the online marketplace ‘Heartizan’. I love working with resin because it is so versatile, and use it to create jewellery and other gifts containing various inclusions from colour pigments and glitters, to dried flowers and watch parts. I also make jewellery from beads. I enjoy creating, and am happy to work with customers to make bespoke pieces just for them.
My craft business is ResinExpectations – making gifts, creating smiles.

Orla Thyme Designs


Hi, I’m Deb’s and I’m the face behind Orla Thyme Design. Orla is my crafting alias!

I love colour, light and nature, especially the sea and all it’s inhabitants and those things tend to be my inspiration. A typical piece of mine will have a duo tone, catching and playing with the light like a fish scale or a feather. I also like to use crystals, certain flowers ( many fade ) , glass chips, bleed colours into each other to create lovely effects and to create my own moulds. I am privileged to have made some memorial pieces, both jewellery and ornamental, by embedding ashes in a favourite colour or fur of a beloved pet. Obviously this is a very sensitive subject so I don’t post these on my page. Please feel free to message me for a chat about your requests though if this may be of interest.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my shop, I hope you find something you love, or maybe I can make you a bespoke piece.

Handmade Crafts UK

My name is Ana and I am the owner of Handmade Crafts UK. I am originally from Portugal but have been living in the UK for the past 25 years.
I have two children aged 10 and 12 and a young man aged 20 with special needs. I also work full time for another company I own in the translations area.
Handmade Crafts UK started from my passion for all handmade products using mainly natural and organic materials. I love the time I spend making my crafts and consider it my own space where my imagination is let free to create products with love and attention. 
I love variety and do my crafts accordingly to my state of being: some days I feel more energetic and immerse myself in making organic soaps and bath bombs; some other days I am more tuned in to my stillness and decide to crochet or decorate frames.
My day cannot end without having made at least something creative, so I always try to organise the time during my day so that crafts are part of it.
Hope you like my products as much as I love making them. Thank you for reading and look forward to your purchases.

goodcrafternoon

Hi, I’m Helen. 58 year old grandmother and self employed steam ironing business owner and keeper of rescued chickens but I like to make and sell jewellery for charity. I started making jewellery back in 2008 after I worked in a semi precious gemstone jewellery shop (a dream job!) where she made her own items and took commissions. I quickly realised that I was capable of that and took a few jewellery making classes. Straight after, I started making jewellery and selling a few bits. I then proceeded onto giving jewellery making classes for children, but had to stop after the insurance costs escalated. I now make all sorts of jewellery and key rings (but not ear rings due to insurance costs) and I sell online for various charities. I am more than happy to take commissions. I give quotations up front. I only work with semi precious gemstones and plated silver. My favourite has always been Fresh Water Pearls, so you will see them feature quite a lot in my work. All proceeds always go to charity: (Various) Rescue Remedies Dog Rescue (£2,700 raised) RSPCA, CIWF, Esther The Wonder Pig, Mrs JG and Ms LB rescue for dogs and cats (£634.00 so far and ongoing online).

Sketch and Flow

My business was born of a desire to get back to my drawing roots whilst engaging with the natural world in a slower more in-depth manner. I do natural world portraits open and ink with intermittent inclusion of hand made paper, pressed flowers and larger dynamic coloured pieces. 
I haven’t done any commissions yet but would be pleased to discuss. 

ArtworkByGiz

Hello,
 
I’m Graham (aka “Giz” – a childhood nickname)
 
My passion is creating original artwork using encaustic wax, tools, techniques and imagination.
 
It is a previously hidden talent for which I am most grateful.
 
It always starts with an original, unique design using tools to melt and fashion pigmented wax.
 
When I am happy with the end result I do one of several things.
 
I always make the picture available as an Original, either mounted ready for framing or as a blank Greeting Card.
 
Some designs I then reproduce as limited print copies, simply because they are my favourites !
 
Others lend themselves to making excellent coasters.
 
I have even experimented with encaustic wax art on glass which has interesting results !
 
I hope you enjoy looking at my endeavours.

Earthen Effects

My name is Lucy and I am a Jewellery Maker based in beautiful Surrey.

All of my life I have been fascinated by nature and in love with the colours that the seasons bring. There are so many patterns and designs in nature and that is where I get my inspiration from.

All of my jewellery pieces are hand made using home grown flowers, berries and toadstools from my garden. The flowers have been dried to preserve their beauty and encased in resin to be enjoyed for a lifetime. I hand sand and polish all my pieces to make sure I get the maximum shine and sparkle.

As well as pre-made pieces I also love to create bespoke pieces so if you have an idea for a special order just for you then please do get in touch.

I absolutely love what I do and for me there is nothing better than seeing my pieces be worn and enjoyed by my customers.
