  • paper crafts, kumihimo
  • I am English and make 3D decoupage paper crafts in the European style, different folds, lots of layers, and pop-ups, with depth and embellishments and many different subjects, styles and seasons. I create a range of shadow boxes and boxed greeting cards for gifts, plus book marks and gift boxes. I have an extensive line of “Deco Lady” cards and shadow boxes. I also really enjoy making special cards with a personal and sometimes whimsical message....give me a few hints and I will make you a custom card.

    I also make jewelry, with leather, or braided silk cords called Kumihimo.
    Bracelets, necklaces, key chains and “Spectakers”....to hold your glasses. Samurai used it to tie on their armor. Now it is much prettier with braids and beads, presented in a gauze bag or decorative box.

    My latest craze is Angels – for all occasions, cute little bead angels complete with wings to use as key chains, charms, earrings, or on a bracelet or necklace. Or use them as a hostess gift with a special saying to denote the event, complete with a pretty organza bag. There are
    lots of Christmas angels for hostess or office gifts, or to decorate the Christmas tree. My company is B-Spoken-2 by Christine West.
