Introducing Ty Siriol Crafts

I’ve wondered for some time now about having crafts other than ceramics in a shop called ‘Ty Siriol Ceramics’. Finally this year, my mum, Chris has taken over the crafts side of Ty Siriol Ceramics & Crafts and we have opened a second shop, ‘Ty Siriol Crafts’. 

Not only does this segregate our stock nicely but it also gives my mum an opportunity to learn to use a computer and run a shop. I have to say that I’m really proud of how well she is doing. I’ve set her up with a laptop and the basic software to start with and she’s hit the ground running. She does the photography and watermarking herself as well as uploading the stock onto the shop. She even has a facebook page now! 

My next task is to teach her to use the teams on Etsy and introduce her to the lovely Golden Threads team. I’m sure she would fit in really well. In fact it could become hard to tear her away. 🙂 

To give you an idea of what Chris has in her Etsy shop here are a couple of photos. Firstly, Chris is an artist and does some fantastic paintings.

This is an original oil painting that Chris has done. I have several of her works in my house.

 Chris also turns her hand to paper crafts and combines them with crochet. I call it mixed media crochet art!

Chris is also very experienced at knitting and crochet. Sadly I don’t have any of her work in my files but these, which are mine, are also in her shop to give you an idea.

These lovely wrist warmers are also in stock

Chris is also talented with ceramics and a few pieces in my shop were made by her. Here is an example.

I would like to congratulate my mum on her hard work and talents. Mum, this blog is all about you and how proud of you I am. 🙂

If you would like to have a nose at Chris’ new shop then you can find it here. 

Pop by and please tell your friends. You never know, you might spot a unique gift for someone who has everything! 

Thanks for reading and take care,
