Who we are
I’m Mary, creator of DoodleRocks. My fingers are constantly itching to make things and my brain doesn’t switch off from coming up with new ideas. Even while reading a book, having a bath, gardening, walking the dog – it’s chuntering away throwing out ‘what ifs’, ‘maybe this’, ‘how about’ and ‘shall I try’.
Sometimes these things work and sometimes they don’t. You will be pleased to know that the ‘don’ts’ aren’t for sale; they are put to one side for adapting into something else! The ‘do’s’ are gradually being added to here, and my website and my Folksy page (search for doodlerocks)
I love playing with silver and molten glass. I am fascinated by chandelier prisms. I love mooching around antique markets and spotting tiny keys or objects to breathe new love into.
Alongside the jewellery, I use Indian wood blocks to hand print scarves (and tea towels and lampshades and anything fabric that catches my eye!). I also run wood block printing workshops – they are great fun and anyone can do it!
But when I’m not doing that, I am really, first and foremost, a mum to two awesome teenage boys (ahem, I guess they are now young men!), who, on the whole, put up with my messy creative spirit. I am a companion to my delightful Sproodle – yep she rules the roost, and lastly but no means least, I am a friend, sister, daughter and lover of life!
