Argent Angel

Argent Angel arose from a lifelong love of silver and gemstone jewellery. I also have a passion for fossils and use all three elements in my pieces.

Over the years I have enjoyed studying many jewellery making techniques, which I have incorporated into my work, and I continue to learn and develop new techniques. These techniques, along with the use of natural gemstones and fossils, enables me to offer a wide range of unique and individual jewellery which is not readily available elsewhere.

Cazza's Cards

My name is Carol Mitchell and I have been crafting for over 30 years. I started with cross stitch and knitting and moved on to card making about 10 years ago. I have been doing craft fairs, garden shows and dog shows with my cards all over Essex and just over the border into Suffolk for many years.

I enjoy making cards, and each one is different as I do not do two exactly the same. I enjoy the feedback from customers who contact me afterwards for bespoke orders.

All cards can be produced in various colours, all cards are left blank for your own message. I also have a range of mounted, framed and canvas photos in various sizes and types of frame.
