Piepowder Crafts is a small business based on the Wirral, founded in the summer of 2016. I’ve spent the time since developing my stock, learning new skills and travelling to fairs and festivals. I have steadily built up a customer base throughout the Wirral and north west.
Why Piepowder Crafts? Piepowder was originally the Medieval Anglo-French pied-poudreux, meaning someone with dusty feet. Piepowder was most often applied to merchants who toured the country to buy and sell at fairs.
A combined love of nature, history, archaeology and travelling has without doubt, influenced my designs. Using a wide selection of materials including wood, willow, antler, copper, bronze, sterling silver, amber, pearls and semi-precious gemstones I make an eclectic mix of Jewellery, Sun-catchers , Dream-catchers, hand embroidered tote bags and more seasonal items.
When you buy from Piepowder Crafts you’re buying something that has been lovingly handcrafted, that’s not mass produced and where no two items will ever be identical. Every item will be different, whether it be design, colour, materials used or different gemstones.
At Concept Corner you will find a selection of my work including:
- Bronze pendants
- Antler pendants
- Wooden pryrographed pendants,
- Steam punk influenced jewellery
- Polymer clay necklaces
- Wire woven gemstone or crystal butterflies, dragonflies ,and tree of life.
- A small selection of Copper and willow garden hangings.
I’ll be adding new stock and new designs regularly.
