Meet the Maker - Facet Nation

11 weeks to go, and it's flying by, and I have 7 tables left, so please contact me at handmadefairs @ raspberry . co . uk if you are interested : ) But, lets get back to the important stuff, here is the third Meet the Maker, this time with Amy Hubbard, who works under the name Facet Nation, a jeweller who works with silver and semi-precious stones!

What got you into crafting?

I've always been into arts and crafts since I was little and always looked at things in shops and thought 'there must be a way I can make that myself'!  Im a definite magpie too, so have always admired and been facsinated by jewellery & gemstones.
I did Art & design at school, then college then went on to do a degree in Metalwork and Jewellery making, and have been a professional jeweller for two years now.

What is the best thing about making jewellery?

The freedom to be as creative as I like!  I find jewellery making quite relaxing & satisfying when a piece is finally finished.  You can sit back and say 'I made that!'  It makes you feel very proud. Even better when you see other people wearing your jewellery. 

What Handm@de stuff do you have your eye on?

Funky Mutts!  I think accessories for dogs are so hot right now!  Funky Mutts have a great looking website and really well made products.  I will definitely be checking out their stand at Winchester!

Thanks Amy for taking part in Meet the Maker, watch out for the next one in a few days time :)
