Janis Embleton of Flight creates a range of high quality hand-woven items which combine the traditional and contemporary. Working in natural fibres, the range of products includes sumptuous scarves and stoles and items for the home such as table linen, cushions, throws and rugs. Also available are one-off framed abstract pieces and wall hangings.
The prices are low not because of poor quality but because I don't put a massive profit margin on as I'm doing this not as a business but as a recreational and artistic outlet as I am unable to work due to disability.
As a consequence a creation might take me an hour but can also take me a month.
I'm still learning and my love is gemstones, wirework, clay work, enamelling, metalwork and of the jewellery I make my kilt pins and Angels I love making the most. When I first started in 2007 no one made kilt pins made into brooches now many do so I copyrighted my designs in January 2014
I use mixed media and I like to pride myself it's not just putting charms on as anyone can do that but I do my own drilling, soldering, enamelling, gluing, cold fusion as well as wirework and metalwork.
I can attempt any design you wish to have made or discuss with me a design I could make
