Hi, I’m Emma, and I love making things! I am Jewellery Maker, Craft Blogger and Creative and Make and Fable is where I share my passion for craft projects, making jewellery, teaching workshops and creative lifestyle and travel posts. I want to live a creative life, full of making, creating and exploring. There is a new post every Wednesday/Thursday, with at least 2 craft DIYs a month. I also blog about creative events or places I have visited, behind the scenes of my jewellery brand and chat about creativity in general.
In between blog posts, you can usually find me hanging out on Instagram and Pinterest. Don’t want to miss any posts and be first to hear about new jewellery? Sign up for my monthly email. And I love helping with your craft or jewellery making questions -just use the hashtag #AskMakeandFable on Twitter or Instagram or email me firstname.lastname@example.org!
When I was little, my Mum always said I would grow up to be either a zookeeper or a Blue Peter presenter (Blue Peter is a kids magazine programme that features a lot of making out of cereal packets and sticky back plastic!). So it wasn’t a great surprise when I decided to study Fine Art at college, then university. After completing my degree, I felt the need to get a ‘proper’ job and worked in the media as a picture researcher for a few years. But I wasn’t happy, I knew I was meant to be doing something more creative, so I started making my own jewellery and selling at local craft fairs. I live in Nottingham, UK with my two fluffy cats, Aston and Martin and can usually be found drinking tea and eating cake.
