Crafty By Nature
Amanda is a designer/crafter/crazy-dog-lady based in Dublin 8. She specialises in upcycling part vintage tea sets into luxury candles and one-of-a-kind mosaics.
“I never met a teacup I didn’t like! I take the well-loved pieces - the chipped, the broken and the cracked… the favourite cups with the gilding loved off. I remake them into something pretty and special!”
Being particularly blessed with clumsy friends and family, and having a near obsession with mooching around charity shops gives Crafty by Nature a lot of material to work with.
Our first principle is that the most sustainable way to upcycle vintage china to suit modern living is to reimagine it by changing it as little as possible.
Vintage tea cups and saucers are reimagined as soy candles that are vegan, eco-friendly and can be used again as teacups once the candle has burnt out.
Cracked, chipped and broken china is hand-cut into mosaic tiles and combined with recycled art glass for mosaics inspired by the magic of nature and folklore. Each piece is meticulously crafted and unique.
Crafty by Nature also combines other handmade items - silk lined sleep masks and aromatherapy pillow sprays to make relaxing gift sets.
And the crazy-dog-lady part? 10% of all proceeds will go to Dogs In Distress - an amazing charity that rescues dogs, gives them a soft place to land with a kind foster family, and places them in a loving forever home. Crafty by Nature loves dog-friendly markets, and always brings treats for furry friends!
