STALLHOLDER PROFILE - KELLIE CHRISTIE

Hi Everyone

As promised, here is another stallholder profile. We hope you enjoy reading and getting to know our wonderful stallholders....

We would like to introduce you to Kellie Christie.



So, Kellie, how long have you been creating for?
I have been making jewellery for over 6 years and have a fine art background.

What inspires you and motivates you to create?
Making and creating keeps me sane. I am a full time mum and making jewellery is my "me" time, it is my outlet and my way of relaxing. I have a passion for jewellery and love things that are quite quirky and different which is where I draw inspiration. I also love colour, the brighter the better!



What is your favourite item that you make?
I don't really have a favourite but I am loving my new range of rings and brooches.

Where is your studio/dedicated creative space?
My studio is a converted garage. My dad converted the garage for us and added aircon. I share this space with my hubby, so it is a combined studio for me and computer room for hubby.

What is your most popular item within your collection?
Definitely my flat button necklaces.



Do you have new products in the works?
I am currently working on something for the boys, wallets made using vinyl and paper.

Tell us a bit about your business/hobby?
Kellie Christie
I am a contemporary jewellery designer and I mainly create jewellery from buttons. I love the beauty found in common objects which are so often overlooked. I also like to reuse where I can so I combine both new and old buttons in my jewellery.
Where do you see yourself in 2 years time?
Hopefully working full time on my jewellery.


What do you love about The Handmade Expo?
I have a passion for handmade and like to support other local artists and designers as much as possible. I also love meeting my customers face to face and getting to know them a little and also getting great feedback on my jewellery.

Thanks Kellie for taking the time to complete the Stallholder Questionnaire. If you are a stallholder and would like to chance for your profile to shown all over the world...just go HERE



Once again, we hope you love this...keep tuning in for more.

From
Liesa, Micky & Miriam
