Sharon Chapman - sharon-elaine.com
Here at Created By Hand we love crafters who create high quality gifts that are seldom seen elsewhere and our latest crafter ‘Sharon-Elaine’ more than meets that criteria.
Nottingham based Sharon is mum to one small boy called Luke. By day she lives the life of a respectable accountant but by night she turns into a crazy crafter, hand making all the gifts available on sharon-elaine.com.
Over the years, Sharon has dabbled in many crafts including cross stitch (wonderful, but time consuming), candle making (banned for splashing candle wax on the kitchen floor!), teddy bear making (still something she would like to do when time allows), and more recently baby cakes (The Baby Cake Boutique), sock rose bouquets (Raspberry Pink), gifts made from vintage fabric (Blooming Vintage) and non-vintage fabrics (Cherry Blossom Blue), origami and other Japanese inspired items (Sakura Blue).
They say ‘Jack of all trades, master of none’ but nobody told Sharon this, whose attention to detail and flawless skills means she excels in everything she tries. This is evident in the range of gifts we currently have in the shop.
Sharon has a bit of a dislike for making the same thing over and over and over again which means that the majority of her gifts are totally unique.
“I definitely need more sleep, but love making stuff so much I end up going to bed at stupid o'clock every night!”.
We currently stock arrange of sock cupcakes, sock bouquets and Kanzashi-style flower brooches made from genuine vintage Liberty print fabric but, with Sharon’s prolific lust for crafting, who knows what we will see next !!
