Treasured Forever was established in September 2009. Owner Alison works with many mediums of craft, but specialises in costume jewellery.
“I am so lucky to have a job that I love and think about from dawn to dusk … always thinking of new designs and ways of making that perfect piece of jewellery,” says Alison, who is known by the nickname Beeg or BG (Beadgirl).
She undertakes many commissions and is pleased to say that every idea that a customer has come in with has been fulfilled, and they have gone away with a special piece of jewellery, made to measure and unique.
She never makes the same thing twice. A quirky selling point she has is, whenever possible, making three earrings to go with a necklace – a spare, in case you are wondering why!
After her love of jewellery making is Decopatch – sticking pretty bits of special paper to … well, whatever you want to, to upcycle furniture, photo frames, lamps, cupboards, staircases, and even car hub caps (which Alison has done on her own car)!
All her work is showcased on her Facebook page and her Decopatch is for sale at www.treasuredforever.weebly.com as well as in the shop.
As a Tavi girl, she loves experiencing the ambience of the town and its people from the dimension of a shop owner. Everyone helps everyone and she is very happy to be a part of it.
