Today's theme for #MarchMeettheMaker is 'recommend a maker'. So with a screenshot borrowed from the seaglass section of their website (hope they don't mind *gulp*), I'm recommending VJW Jewellery in Newcastle upon Tyne (a few miles from my hometown). Their website is www.vjwjewellery.co.uk and they have a bricks and mortar shop in the Grainger Market in Newcastle, selling beads, and ready to wear and custom made jewellery. And they run classes too if you fancy making your own. And you can follow them on here @vjwjewellery (I have no link to them other than having some of their gorgeous stuff 😀) #jewellery #jewelry #newcastle #tyneside
