It is my New Year’s resolution to start a blog so I thought, why not get a head start on 2012 and start in December 2011? That’s very organised for me, as you will know if you have visited my previous websiteand noticed that my monthly news articles were never on time! This blog will be used to replace that and instead of the pressure of posting monthly updates I will now be able to write a new article whenever I actually have something interesting to say!
The Candy Tree is the home of hand crafted goodness by me, Emma Dickie, an artist based in West Lothian, Scotland.
I have been making jewellery since 2005 and recently “branched out” (sorry!) to create cross stitched art, patchwork cushions and hand knitted scarves. I am inspired by nature and vibrant colours. My jewellery is created using good quality glass beads, freshwater pearls and sterling silver. Each and every piece is lovingly made by hand.
In an age of mass-produced fashion, The Candy Tree produces designs that complement your personality and won’t be seen on every second person you pass on the street.
