My name is Anashrita Henckel and I am a qualified artist, originally from the Caribbean. I now live and work in Oxford creating bespoke pieces of art jewellery for special occasions and for everyday flair. Each piece is unique in its design and execution and often reflects my love of colour, pattern and symbolism. Many of the beads I handcraft from polymer clay, and both the wirework and metal smithing are executed to a high degree of finish and quality.
I teach art and music to primary aged children as well as bringing up my own two lively boys to be well rounded, confident and contented young people. ( or as near to that as possible!) I hope that by sharing some of the techniques, ideas and creative processes that I do with the children this blog can become a useful resource for parents, teachers or anyone else needing ideas. For a visual look at some artwork done by children I teach, then do click on the gallery.
