Welcome to Make and Fable!

Some exciting news to tell you; I am having a bit of a re-brand, Emma Ruth Jones is becoming Make&Fable!

Make and Fable Craft Blog

I first started my blog to document my jewellery making and provide a bit of context to what I do. Since then, I have started teaching workshops and discovered my love for DIY blogging! Having everything under my own name didn’t seem to quite fit anymore. I have always struggled naming my jewellery, so I’ll admit that naming a business was a bit of a challenge! But thinking about what I wanted my little corner of the internet to be, I came up with Make&Fable.

Although my business has evolved into different parts, I felt they all came under the umbrella of creativity and storytelling. I love handmade; whether I’m making it or helping others to make and I believe that the stories and history attached to objects can be almost as important as the object itself. Craft and art are important parts of every culture on Earth. Human beings are meant to create, to be around creativity and that without it, we are doing ourselves a disservice. I want to help people lead a more creative lifestyle, especially if they think they aren’t creative!

All the old content from my EmmaRuthJones blog has been transferred over here to the sparkly new www.makeandfable.com  and will continue to grow each week. Each Wednesday there will be a new post, with at least 2 new tutorials a month, a new ‘Creative Places’ feature and the ‘Craft Basics’ series. All my existing social media handles and Etsy shop are also changing to Make&Fable. Don’t worry, my Instagram feed will still feature plenty of cat antics!

Thank you for all the support so far, it honestly means a huge amount to me. If you have feature and tutorial suggestions, want to work with me, commission a pieces, customise a workshop or just want to say hi, I would love to hear from you!
