Hi! I'm Claire Griffiths, otherwise known as 'Yellow Bear' both online in my live journal/myspace days many moons ago and sometimes in real life. I've therefore taken the name Yellow Bear Wares for my small business making and selling jewellery by re-purposing strange but delightful objects! I make bracelets, earrings, necklaces, rings and more from knitting needles, crochet hooks and climbing rope.
I started up in February 2013 and the business has slowly taken over my life, I've been able to drop down to three days a week in my other job and I love the balance I've found between my making/designing work and my role as a facilitator in a day centre for people with learning disabilities.
In this blog I will share news and updates of what I get up to, posts about inspiring makers and doers, reviews of exhibitions I go to/films I see/music I hear and tutorials made using my creative adventures.
