    Hello. My name is Dagna, I live on the Essex/Suffolk border, and I am a photographer and jeweller. Really just getting going with both in terms of selling, although I have been taking photographs for over 40 years, and used to help my sister out with her jewellery business back in the 1980s (she was the silver- and gold- smith, I used to help out with stringing necklaces and making earrings). My day job is in IT (or, rather, isn't at the moment), and I decided to take advantage of having some time to get involved with things that meant stepping away from the keyboard. (Which is hard. Very hard!)

    So I am selecting and framing photographs, had some printed up as cards and magnets, and getting ready to start making some jewellery - I am intending to use pearls and semi-precious stones, and every time I try to sit down quietly, my brain fills up with great (I think) ideas. But then I have to try to sell something - my first fair is at the end of June.

    This looks like a really supportive group of people - I hope I will fit in.

    Best wishes,

    Dagna

      Hi Dagna
      Wow! sounds like you've been really busy - puts me to shame!
      I hope you do really well at the fair - and look forward to seeing some of your work!

                    Dagna. I am sure you will "fit in". We are quite a mixed bunch of crafters. I think we may be picking your brains re photography too.
