Hawkwood Creations

I make handmade, individual pieces of jewellery from a mixture of semi-prescious stones, silver, pearls and glass beads.


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.

Honeybee Natural Beauty

Honeybee products are lovingly made in small batches using natural plant oils, pure essential oils and natural additives.  Honey and beeswax from our own hives are incorporated into many of the formulations. Made in Suffolk.



Gemstone jewellery.

Simply Amazing Wood

Wood-turned plates, bowls and trinket boxes. I also make nesting boxes, wooden wreaths and plaques.


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.
