  • Greetings from Cambridge

    Hi there,

    I'm sat at home feeling like a poorly bunny, and found you

    My name is Melanie, and I'm a currently addicted to jewellery making in several forms - beadweaving, stringing, chainmaille I've also dabbled in a bit of tapestry and cross-stitch, and some dress making, but I haven't done much of those since I started jewellery making, and yet still make it to Olympia and Ally Pally to go and buy kits, patterns, etc. The last cross stitch piece I started was Celtic Christmas

    I live in Cambridge with my long-term fiance and two cats. We used to have two ferrets as well (don't ask - it seemed like a good idea at the time), but sadly the last one passed away a couple of months ago.

    I'm currently redesigning the jewellery website (hence no link) to replace the awful one my other half made, but you can spot a couple of my designs on my MySpace page. About a year ago I launched an online beadshop to support my hobby, but in real life I'm actually an accountant - I passed my ACCA exams a couple of years ago - but don't hold that against me

    Look forward to chatting with you all (and anyone here who knows me from other forums will know I can chat )
    Melanie

            Hi Melanie
            It's great to have you on hgere with all your knowledge. I bet you'll soon be inundated with tax related enquiries. There are a lot of people on here you already know!! (not telling who though, you'll have to wait and see...)

                              Hi Emma,

                              I've done a handful of cross-stitch cards, but I think if I were to go into card-making proper my other half would have something to say about - he moans already about all the beads everywhere

                              At least now I know where to come next time I need a special card
                              Melanie
