My name is Laura and I'm the designer and maker at I Love Crafty where I make perspex jewellery with love and imagination since 2009! I work from my small but perfectly formed home office here in creative Bristol in the UK. I Love Crafty is all about fun, creative and colourful jewellery, designed, made and packaged with love!
I've joined Patreon and I'm so excited because I've decided to give myself a big creative challenge - to design and make a brand new jewellery collection every 2 months and I'd love your help! I want this year to be all about creativity, positivity and community for all of us!💖
I'd love you to follow me down the designing rabbit hole and join me on my creative journey! It's sometimes pretty lonely designing and making on my own but one of my favorite parts of doing I Love Crafty is hearing from you guys! Listening to your feedback, your stories and getting your advice. And thanks to patreon you can be there right with me, taking part in polls to help me choose which collections to make, follow my design process and get to see what its really like running your own business.
How it works...
Patreon is a great place to support artists you love on a monthly basis and you can join me on my creative quest by pledging an amount per month and in return I've created some super cool fun rewards for you to choose from and it's easy to cancel or upgrade your pledge at anytime, no problem :)
Your pledges will help me buy:
- jewellery making supplies
- designing materials
- production costs
It will also give me time to design and look around for inspiration. But the main thing is that I want to hear from you, I want you to be part of the journey!
When you make a pledge you get rewards! Some of these are: take a look behind the scenes, find out what its really like to work for yourself, what I do from start to finish to design and make a collection, from the first sketches, to making prototypes, choosing the right materials, thinking about packaging and photography and finally putting them out in the world for sale and running an online shop!
