Get to know besidethesea.art
I love to try different crafts, but it was during the 1st Lockdown of 2020 whilst doing garden repairs that I discovered String Art. I started using the offcuts of decking as my base with embroidery thread and panel pins to create some lovely pictures. I have several versions of Hearts & Flowers available, in addition to Boats, Anchors & Beach Huts, with new pictures being added regularly. Each picture is unique, both from the wood grain & colour, to the string pattern & pins used. They can be free standing, or hung & make great gifts to brighten any home. If there’s a specific product you can’t find, don’t hesitate to get in touch. I'm always happy to consider custom orders for valued clients.
Thankyou for taking the time to look at my work. Please feel free to look at all my designs and pass my details on to friends. New individual pieces will be regularly added.
I take great pride in my work and all items are lovingly handmade by me in my crafting room over looking the sea in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex.
PLEASE NOTE:- Each item is Unique. Due to wood characteristics, the grain, pattern, colouring and knots will vary from piece to piece, along with possible dye variations in the cotton colouring and background paint shades. The finished items may vary slightly from what you see in the example photos.
If you have any specific requests or questions please don't hesitate to get in touch to discuss these with me.
I can personalise a message & send directly as a gift if wanted. Suitable Flamingo Paperie cards are also available to use for this at an additional cost of £2. Contact me for card options & to arrange details.
