I’m Rachel and I run Fun-Designs, which is based in Brynamman in the foothills of the Black Mountain. I have always been fiddling around doing crafty stuff, but a few years ago I decided to give it a go at doing it as a business. I put it on hold for two years whilst I moved house from near Reading to a beautiful spot half way to the middle of nowhere.
So what is it that Fun-Designs does?
Well, we make jewellery and quirky trinkets to sell to everyone else. All sorts of styles from the simple to the vaguely outlandish, but always at reasonable prices, it just depends what catches the eye on the day. The most recent line is wedding hair slides, my kid sister got married – I had the beads and she had a lot of other things that she needed to buy.
I’m a firm believer in internet security, so I’m not going to have a shop here, I’m going to have an Etsy shop, so that’s going to be up and running at some point this year.
I have a day job which takes a lot of time, but I have grand ideas, so this list of what we do will be increasing because I’m one of those people who can’t sit still and watch TV. All I know is that doing this stuff is fun and that’s what it’s all about 🙂
