ABOUT ME .................. MY NAME IS VAL PARRY

I Love to design and make jewellery as well as many other craft items.

I have always been a little creative but my love of Line dancing has given me the chance to develop my creativity.
I have a captive audience and a ready made outlet for all things fancy and blingey (IS THAT A WORD.... it is now)

Along side my jewellery I also design t-shirt motifs either in glitsy vinyl or bold shiny crystals.

The vinyl designs are quite a recent addition to my crafting when a few months back I purchased a cutting machine.
Not only now can I draw designs on the computer for crystal decorations on T-shirts, I can now
cut out and stick on or iron on gorgeous flowers and butterflies to many different materials.

In my home, if it is bare, it gets decorated.

I have decorated my computers, my cutting machine and printers, my clock, my mirror to name just a few things
(Oh and have you seen my cars?? - check out my album).

Personalised gifts are always in demand. They just mean so much more to the person receiving them.

I am always looking for new ideas and challenges so if you have something in mind just give me a call



I was born in Bath but moved to South Wales in 1972 with my husband & 3 sons.
I now have 6 grandchildren & 5 great grandchildren

I have always had some sort of crafting on the go.
When my children were small I took in knitting orders and also had my own designs on sale in a boutique
in Bath where I lived originally.

Working from home was a must for me at the time so that I could be there for the children
and also my husband owned a taxi business and I used to work the two way radio
and take the phone calls in between the knitting, sewing and crochet work

When I moved to South Wales in 1972 my crafting took a back seat for many years. I took a job for a few years, did some evening classes and eventually went into full time education and did a degree in Computer Science,
after which time I started my own computer company.

Working in an office makes you really unfit so realising this was my push into dancing and then finally
increasing the dance classes and cutting the hours in the office seemed the perfect solution and
so finally 5 years ago
I retired from full time office work to give me more time to dance and then I found I had so much more energy
to spend time on other things I enjoy doing

So here I am today, retired, and working longer hours than I ever did when I had the computer business
but nothing feels like work. I dance and I create.... Life is full of fun and enjoyment and I am still earning a living
and meeting and making friends on the dance floor which means I am in touch with many of my craft customers too.
