In today's MEET THE MAKER post we are delighted to be introducing you to Karen Mckay - the creative talent behind Blue Feather Jewellery. Karen has only just joined our Frock Around The Clock events and will be exhibiting with us for the first time this Saturday 4th March at The Marvellous March Vintage & Handmade Fair at Belfast Cathedral. But for now, why not make yourself a nice cup of tea and sit down to enjoy some of Karen's beautiful creations which are not only inspired by our local natural beauty, but each include a tiny bit of nature found on her daily travels..........
I have been making resin jewellery for just under a year and I generally incorporate flowers, feathers and shells, although over Winter I have included a bit of diamanté bling - who doesn't like a bit of bling?!
I love, while out for walks, finding a little piece of nature that I can take home and transform into a beautiful piece of jewellery, thereby permanently preserving the natural beauty that constantly surrounds us. My two young children are great at helping with this and, when we walk along the coastal path, are the best feather and flower-finders ever!
I am currently looking forward to the warmer weather and the myriad of beautiful flowers it will bring with it, so my pieces can capture the blossoming and new beginnings of Spring.
