DELicious Designz and Get SPOONed. Del makes amazing resin and spoon jewellery and my sister and I are proud owners of some of Del's funky resin bangles.
Tell us a bit about yourself.
I am Adelle and I live in Albany, Western Australia, with my 2 girls and hubby, dog, rabbit, guinea pig, budgie, hermit crabs....and now it seems cat and chicken as well (these are not ours but have dropped by our place recently). I am a stay-at-home-mum (although I don't seem to stay at home that much) and I am a full-time crafter. I frequent the markets where you can find me selling my creations and I also sell online.
My creative direction has changed due to an allergy I have been getting from the resin I work with. So in the best interests of my health, I have stopped creating bangles and rings and have been focussing more on my spoon jewellery. I have now opened up my second etsy store GetSPOONed .
Describe yourself in 5 words.
I am really quite awesome!!!! (Well someone has to think so, might as well be me). Edit: He he he, love your confidence Del!
When and how did you first start crafting/creating?
I have always been a crafty kind of girl. My Mum and Gran did markets when I was growing up, selling knitted jumpers, beanies, and knitted barbie clothes!!! My girls are now using some of those outfits that I handed on to them for their dolls.
I learnt to knit and crochet at a young age and always liked to try new crafts. I didn't do much for a few years but then, after having children and feeling a need to do something more than just be Mum, I got into beading. I made lots of earrings and necklaces, more than one girl needed, but thought that if I wanted to sell my jewellery it had to be really different to get noticed. So I began experimenting, I discovered resin and the rest is history.
What do you create and what are your favourite materials with which to work?
Favourite materials!!! I love using vintage components, cutlery, resin.
When and how did you start selling online?
I was given the courage to take my spoon pendants to market by my good friend Samara (Maddabling). We shared a table and it was lots of fun. But afterwards I had lots of stock left and Samara suggested opening an etsy store. So really, I owe it all to her, otherwise I probably would not have had the courage to take my creations to the world.
