Hi, I am Lucy welcome to Lucy Jackson Designs where you can follow what I have been doing, see things I have made and perhaps buy something for yourself or a special someone.
I am a bit of a craft Addict, i love to make do and create, to look at other crafters work, to buy craft supplies and to share my craft enthusiasm whenever and wherever possible.
I can’t remember a time in my life when there wasn’t creativity involved, finger painting and fimo, glueing and sticking, sewing and sawing with lots of encouragement from parents who never said ‘No Lucy you cant use the drill’ but said ‘Ok here is how to use the drill’ there was no stopping me then and I have just kept going!
In between the finger painting and the business i have now there was a love of art and design at school, two years product design at what was the College of Building and Printing to get a HND, then 2 years at Caledonian University studying for a BAhons in Product design and then another year doing an Msc Product design and development. I thoroughly enjoyed my studies but found that at the end my passions for the creativity and the making are not where the jobs were.
So how did the business start? well like i said i have always made things and one year at Christmas i made all of my work colleagues Christmas cards and come Valentines and Mothers Day a few of my friends at work asked if i could make them cards and of course i said Yes. Then i was wearing one of my first wire jewellery creations and was asked if i would make some to sell and again the answer was a big Yes. Thank you to all of you who commissioned those first cards and pieces of jewellery you, it is a wonderfull feeling to know that people want to pay for the things that you lovingly create. From there it has snowballed into a business, Craft fairs, selling online, selling in shops and running workshops for adults and kids.
