Gabriels Crafts was born out of an appreciation of beautiful, hand-crafted, European decorations and has grown into a thriving small business selling an amazing range of these traditionally made and sought after gifts. 
Christmas Pyramids, Tree Decorations, Candle Holders and Nutcrackers are just some of the traditional Christmas decorations we sell that are made in Seiffen in Germany, which many consider to be the ‘Home of Christmas’ because of the beautiful and distinctive designs and the history that is behind their famous decorations.

Clare Lloyd is a designer-maker based in Somerset working from her studio in The Silk Mill – a restored mill in the centre of Frome.  Clare creates a range of colourful jewellery made from polymer, resin clay and sterling silver. 

Each element of Clare’s jewellery is made by hand from the individual beads to  the  findings.  The  clays  are mixed  together  to  create  as  many  different colours  as  possible  and  the beads  are  cut  and  hand rolled.   Clare keeps  the shapes  of  the  beads  simple  to  allow  the  colour  to  become  the  focal  point  of each design – the colour combinations are endless so each piece of jewellery becomes  unique.    Once  fired,  the  beads  are  lightly sanded  and  left  un-varnished to give a flat, matt finish.  

Necklaces are finished with hand made, hammered sterling silver clasps and jump  rings  and  colourful  resin  stacking  rings  have gently  hammered  bands that sparkle slightly in the light.

Lisa Malyon specialises in a contemporary style of architectural drawing depicting buildings and structures in Bristol and beyond.  By working directly onto various collage paper including newsprint and Chinese Joss paper Lisa adds colour and texture to her drawings.  Focusing on a specific detail in the building or structure Lisa leaves parts of the image to look apparently ‘unfinished’, inviting the viewer to look closer and imagine the complete image. Alongside her two-dimensional artwork Lisa also draws directly onto cotton drum lampshades ‘in the round’.  Lisa has under taken many commissions but Clevedon Pier and Clifton Suspension Bridge remain her best sellers. In July 2015 Lisa became a record breaker as some of her drawings were featured in the World’s Biggest Colouring Book in conjunction with the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and Ho
bbs Reprographics.

Sue Harris’ parents were worried when she ran around with scissors – now she plays with fire and (intentionally) breaks glass! Based in Clevedon, close to the sea and often the scene of beautiful sunsets, Sue is inspired by the countryside around. Working full time as a glass artist from her garden studio, Blue Box Studio, using sea glass collected from remote British beaches, soda lime glass from Murano, USA and beyond, she creates artisan beads, which she uses in her own eclectic range of jewellery.   

Continuing the glassy theme from round rods to flat sheets, she breaks large sheets of transparent, opaque, multi-coloured and dichroic glass into much smaller pieces to make a kiln-formed range of bright, colourful jewellery and home decoration.   Each piece Sue makes is individually designed around the shape, size and beauty of the materials and intended to be unique, wearable or usable and affordable. All her glass work is kiln annealed for strength and durability and designed to give pleasure for years to come. Sue will be exhibiting her colourful range of jewellery, alongside decorative pieces for your walls, windows, tables and Christmas tree.
