Nicola Hurst, a madebyhandonline Maker, is a designer maker of contemporary jewellery. Her jewellery shop is in the Hyde Park Village district of Plymouth, and she sells and promotes an exciting collection of jewellery by independent designers.
Based in the rolling hills of Dartmoor, Jules and Becs of Rockrose photography are surrounded by natural beauty, which is reflected in their work. Both are graduates of Fine Art Photography and have been creating personal work for over 12 years. Covering weddings, portraiture and commercial photography they capture the essence of their subject, with a mixed style of documentary, reportage and posed shots. Their photographs are contemporary, fun and evocative with a vintage twist.
