Thanks for stopping by! My name is Linda Ellis and I’m a jewellery and craft designer. Currently I run Purplegems, which I set up in 2007. I make all kinds of jewellery, wedding jewellery and accessories, I do glass painting, handsewn designs on t.shirts and I paint graphical images on canvasses. I sell my crafts online, at craft fairs, shopping events, markets, boot sales and home parties. I also submit designs to magazines and so far have had my projects featured in Beads and Beyond magazine.
I have always loved making things. It’s creativity or nothing in my world! I find alot of things inspire me, colours around me, pictures in magazines, cards I receive at Christmas or on my birthday, previous jewellery designs, charity shops, thrifting, graphical prints, visits to museums, books, the internet, shops and my best friend who is also very creative. (How did you guess?!) I use all of this inspiration when making my creations and I love designing one-off pieces.
If you are interested in having your own jewellery party then please feel free to contact me. I work in Essex around the Basildon-Southend border.
Receive 10% of the total party sales to spend on yourself when you hold a party and they're free!! Just have a minimum of 6 friends, supply some nibbles and drink if you want and leave me to do the rest. I can guarantee you and your friends a brilliant girlie night in!
