ebbandfloProfile & bio

a little bit about ebb and flo (under construction but then you guessed that anyway!)

 ebb and flo is the work of a stay-at-home mum who crafts to stay sane in, around and in spite of her family life

 I've been making and selling jewelry for a few years now. My designs evolved out of a need to create some tough pieces to cope with life as the mum of an active toddler, and they've evolved from there.

Please check my feedback in my main Etsy shop, ebbandflo, for customer comments.




 ... a brief interview with the artist!

Q: ... and so, what inspired you to start making and selling jewelry?

A: The sheer and utter desperation from having three necklaces and bracelets broken by grabbing little fingers. I realised that if I wanted to wear any of my jewelry it would have to be childproof. So I took a class and learned how to wire and string .... and one bead led to another .... and very soon I had a habit to support.

Q: And that's how pomo mama design was born. But why ebb and flo as the name for your shop?

A: Simple! The ideas, time and resources ebb and flow according to the napping whims of my son.

Q: And "treats for mama"?

A: Every mum deserves something nice for herself and (shameless plug) I hope you'll find it here at ebb and flo.

Q: A last word on earrings perhaps.

A: Earrings and toddlers don't mix - still haven't found a way of child proofing those items beyond wearing a helmet, scrum cap or ear muffs, but I think that rather spoils the whole effect.
