Sitting on my stand at The Contemporary Craft Fair in Bovey Tracey, I overheard a lady in a pretty vintage dress say… “I don’t need an engagement ring, I want an engagement fairy”
This pretty dressed lady had obviously caught herself a gentleman. Later in the show he came round to say that he’d like to commission a fairy to go with the ring. Such a romantic gesture to be involved in and such an honour.
I set about designing and making a ‘Treasure Transporter’ . Fairies have similar traits to Magpies…they really do love and collect treasure. I was delighted as well as daunted by this opportunity. Such a big deal and the lovely dressed lady is a maker too…even more pressure to create something perfect.
To cut a long story short, I made it and she said ‘YES’…..
Thank-you so so much for my beautiful fairy! I adore it and it has pride of place on our living room mantelpiece! I couldn’t believe my luck when I opened it and got a fairy and a ring all in one go…the most magical day ever! Everything about it is so perfect..you are too clever! “
