Meet the Maker - PennyDog Accessories

Kerry of PennyDog Accessories is our first 'Meet the Maker' feature for the Cambridge fair.
Kerry makes jewellery which incorporates resin and recycled materials which results in a very unique look. She uses everything from fabric scraps to polymer clay, bubble wrap and cake toppers.
"I was doing a few bookings as an events photographer at university balls and I wanted to offer something different to the prints on sale, I looked into making photographic jewellery. I completely accidently stumbled upon resin as a way of coating the images and it took over! Now I photograph (and sell) other things incased in resin," says Kerry.

The other very special thing about Kerry's work is that £1 from every sale is donated to the Retired Greyhound Trust. The name PennyDog comes from her very own dog who was adopted by Kerry via the Retired Greyhound Trust. "Penny needed a lot of medical care and the trust paid for it all. This is a small way of thanking them and helping other dogs in the future," says Kerry.

Kerry sells her work at several locations including Etsy and Folksy and also via her own website

You can also come and see Kerry's work at the Handmade fair in April - she will also be signing copies of her book 'Create Your Own Resin Jewellery' which will be available to buy on her stall.
