Made it


FOR A GIFT BURSTING WITH INDI- VIDUALITY, THOUGHTFULNESS AND A PERSONAL TOUCH NOTHING BEATS SOMETHING HOME-MADE.


Creating an item a friend or loved one will treasure is the key element to hand-fashioned presents. And Made It in Dartmouth will show you just how to do that. I spent an enjoyable hour with Yvonne Temple, owner of the gem of the shop-cum-workshop tucked away in Street Smith, making a simple but eye- catching beaded necklace.

She didn’t need to go through making a whole new necklace as the technique was easy to grasp, instead she whipped off the pale blue version she was wearing around her neck and said ‘Here’s one I made earlier.’ Half-an-hour later I left the shop proudly wearing my new creation, and with eager plans to return for another of Yvonne’s workshops, this time in wirework jewellery.
