2. What do you reach for first thing in the morning? My glasses! Can't see a thing without them. And then I go in search of food because I'm usually very hungry when I wake up.
3. What’s better plain or milk chocolate?
Definitely plain chocolate. But I wouldn't say no to milk. Oh, now I want chocolate!

I don't know really, I just make things I like. My mother in law gives me all her old craft magazines which are great for flicking through to get ideas. And sometimes I see a bead or a piece of ribbon and that sets me thinking what I could do with it [Traceyann says: I can your creativity in the wonderful colours and textures you use in your cards]
7. Do you have any role models/inspirations in the area of Design? If so, who and why? The design world is all a bit new to me. I studied psychology at university, not anything to do with craft/design and have never had any formal training so I really don't know much about design. As I said above, I just make things I like! I do quite like Orla Keily though because her patterns are very distinctive and simple.

9. What’s your favourite thing in the world and why? My husband (closely followed by chocolate!). I couldn't do what I do without his support.
Thank you to Laura for taking time to do this interview and giving such fabulous answers. You can check out her Folksy shop at Say It.

This is my new little tweet ring design with personalised lettering around the ring shank. I’m really interested in using lettering in my work and at the moment I’m experimenting with making my own stamps to use with precious metal clay. Jewellery designing is just so amazing with the vast techniques available!

Can I have a favourite from my own shop? I think so and this little owl ring is one of my designs that I wear myself everyday.
In the next few weeks I’ll be asking different crafts folk to choose their favourite items from their shops.
Watch this space!

Mixed metal bracelet. Lovely aluminium focus with riveted copper and brass flower featuring hand stamped SMILE, bee and flower motifs. Silver-plated chain and clasp. Bracelet measures 8".
Aluminium is lovely to wear. It looks like silver, but is lighter and has a gorgeous sparkle to the metal. This unique bracelet will fly to you via 1st class Royal Mail or airmail. It will be gift wrapped in a gift box.
A sunny morning, a walk along the beach, holding hands and sharing a smile....

I spent a lovely morning yesterday making these two little owl necklace. I used precious metal clay to make the discs and then hand-stamped the design. You can find the little owl at Folksy and the large owl at Etsy.
Last week I made this snowflake necklace from precious metal clay with a snowflake white imprint and Let it Snow stamped on the reverse. You can find it in my Etsy and Folksy shops.
Customise Options: The snowflake can also be made to order with different wording on the reverse. I can also make a similar necklace with Let it Snow on the front and your own words on the reverse minus the snowflake. The Owl necklaces can also be personalised with your own words or a special date on the reverse. Let your imagination run wild! Just message me at either of my shops with your ideas and I will get back to you within 24 hours. All best wishes, Traceyann :)

This week I made this little owl from little pieces of silver I had lying around the workshop! I have listed it in my Etsy Shop, but I am half hoping it will stay mine forever! It's abit more shiny than the picture shows - it was a dark rainy day when I took the picture. What do you think of All About the Owl? I'd love to read your comments! Traceyann xxx
