Bozley Crafts

Another talented local crafter that's attending the Steeple Leaze Farm Christmas Fair is the unique Bozley Crafts, this may have been slightly selfish on my part, well with Christmas coming up it's a good chance to 'subtly' hint for present ideas!

We managed to catch up with owner and Crafter Shirlea to find out a bit more about their work...
"Bozley Crafts was born a year or more after I had retired from working full time.  It was a simple suggestion from a friend who planted the seed and then stood back and watched the idea grow.  At first I started making jewellery with less expensive beads and glass pearls but very soon came to realize that the consistency was not up to the standard that I would expect if I were buying the finished product myself.  I therefore sourced Swarovski crystal pearls and Swarovski crystals and now use only these as well as semi-precious gems.  Using these finer materials means that there is consistency and quality and that I can colour match almost any piece to match an outfit/wedding theme etc and every piece made is unique (unless for instance a bride requires identical pieces for, say, bridesmaids gifts etc.).    
We have also recently introduced chainmaille jewellery to our inventory.  Much of our chainmaille also incorporates Swarovski crystals and/or semi precious gems.
Bozley Crafts can be found exhibiting at Wedding Fayres in and around Dorset.  Our pieces have been displayed at Compton Abbas Airfield - specifically on Lady Pilots Fly-In Day.  We have a permanent small display of our work in a local restaurant in East Stour as well as a larger cabinet display in a Wedding Shop in Weston Super Mare.   We are currently having our website reconstructed and will have a "shop" on the new website, where customers can purchase existing pieces and/or order bespoke items.   
I have always had a good eye for detail and I am a true perfectionist.  This means that nothing leaves my work station unless it is perfectly made."  

Shirlea really is a perfectionist and the jewellery is not only unique but really quite exquisite! I've spent a lot of time at various arts and crafts event and you're guaranteed to see a jewellery stand or two, to be successful you have to stand out and offer something a bit different and Bozley Crafts certainly do that. We can't wait to see more of the work at the Christmas fair....
