I am Maria Bateson, a mummy, a diplomatic wife, crafter, teacher...

 I have always enjoyed crafts and making things, I started making jewellery to sell when my son Thomas was napping.  It grew from there.  Then in June 2013 I did the mini prints course at the London Jewellery School and I was hooked on this amazing technique.  I since completed the art clay level 1 diploma.

I am a perfectionist and I take great care to produce your piece to the highest quality.  I always get nervous when I send a piece out, and am always overwhelmed by the compliments you send when your special piece arrives.  I put a lot of heart into working on your piece, I do it all by hand and I want it to be right for you.

I have many repeat customers and I would like to think that they return because of my high quality work and excellent customer service, you can see what some of them think on my facebook page www.facebook.com/mariamadeit 

Occasionally things go a little crazy here, due generally to one or other of my three children.  Please know that if I promise to do something by/for a certain time, I will be doing my absolute best to keep that promise, however if I cannot (it hasn't happened yet) I will be in touch and I will be doing everything possible to get things to you as soon as possible.

I am really looking forward to working with you to create your special piece that will be with you forever.

Best wishes,
