My name is Deb, I am the designer maker behind PurpleDreamDesign. My designs are quite eclectic, a varied assortment of handmade creations ...from jewellery to mixed media home decor but I am mostly known for my beaded spiders ...known amongst my customers, the arachnadorables, as The Spider Lady. I am originally from Liverpool, my childhood and teenage years were spent in Suffolk and I have lived in North Yorkshire for over 35 years. I have two boys, both adults now - I am definitely on my way to 'old biddy' and I am married to my 'one' whom I met fifteen years ago on a field at a motorcycle rally. My work space is the dining room in the 'doer upper' that we have just bought - pending an extension going onto the back of the house especially for me ...fingers crossed. I love what I do and because I make such a variety of different things, I never get bored!
I design and create an eclectic mix of items ...
Beaded spiders, jewellery, memory books, journals, greeting cards, home decor pieces. Everything is handmade and unique, I rarely make the same thing twice. I do have a style, mostly steampunk, grungy, sometimes a bit dark but I offer commission work on everything I create so I can do pretty if required!
