My name is Dawn and Polly Red is my part time business. You see, the thing is I love to make pretty things.
The pretty things that I make can be made of anything, silver, gold, beads, wire, thread, wood, glass & gemstones.
I make them in my home studio in the Northamptonshire countryside where I live with my husband and two children.
I started to make jewellery in 2010, and since then I have learnt a hell of a lot, and I am still on my learning journey. I manage all aspects of my creative business from the design and making of each piece of jewellery to photography, marketing, and building and maintaining this website and accounts - which I hate.
More recently I have moved into making more personalised pieces and am loving it. I love to create pieces which help to share a memory, a phrase, a birth, a special time or place. Pieces that tell your stories!
Buy them for yourselves, your mum, your sister your friend happy in the knowledge that you have just made a 40 something woman smile and do a happy dance because you bought something I made.
My business name Polly Red comes from my Mum who was the most creative person I know and where I like to think my creativity comes from.
I'd love you hear from you, if you have a request for a custom order or fancy leaving a review of something you have bought from me.
Pop in from time to time to see what I'm up to, it would be lovely to see you
