We have sourced a lovely local stockist in Charlestown, called The Craft Kiln. I just happened to be visiting for lunch and saw they were looking for new suppliers.
I have a shelf space, near the front door and the window area where you can the mermaids and faeries floating. The shelf space will be displaying our witches, wizards, maidens and hares. I plan to visit each month to keep it fresh and appealing!
So far, they have been selling wonderfully well which is really exciting and rewarding.
Wizards are now back in stock, its certainly been a while. This year 2019 we plan to create them with a wider selection of colours.
I like to use, natural items where possible and have been each combing on our Cornish beaches for the wooden staves.
My partner Julian has been allocated chief wood cutter and has been cutting the wooden discs, which you’ll notice some of them stand upon upon! I’ll have to rethink when the wood supply gets too low and we freeze! 😂.
The magical witches will be making a comeback this January, each one will remain individual and unique. All have been needle felted, and inspiration for decoration comes from our surroundings and the seasons.
We do accept commissions and January is usually the quietest month before its starts to get busy again. We now supply a few shops so this takes some of our time and family commitments.
We have recently sourced some local wool suppliers, as where possible we like to support local businesses. The introduction of a new carding machine has brought some excitement to the household. Now we can blend any colour we wish, adding silks, wools and sparkles which gives you something totally unique.
Happy New Year… So it’s a new year and another chance to continue to share with you our needle felted creations. Firstly though a big thank you for all your amazing support, our journey wouldn’t be possible without all of you.
January will be spent focusing on the Snowdrop flowers, with a range of Snowdrop fairies and maidens. We definitely won’t run out of these flowers as we’ve stocked up, so probably plenty for next year too!
New fairies and mermaids will be added regularly so keep a close eye on our website or Facebook page Flower Faeries Bella.
On our Flower Faeries Bella Facebook page we have a competition running, so don’t forget to visit us and enter. The fairy in the picture will be given to one lucky person who correctly guesses how many peacock feathers we have in the vase!.
We plan more future competitions so do keep an eye out!
Beltane Blessings to you all! Thank you so much for your wonderful support so far this year from Pam and I. Working self employed is so far very successful and I am loving every minute of it however it is all of you I need to thank as you’ve made it possible!.
