Sally Moon

Sally has lived and worked in Cumbria for over 20 years, predominantly as a broadcaster and producer for the BBC, and whilst originally from Lancashire, feels that Cumbria is 'home'. She comes from a family of 'creatives'; her Father, an artist and architect, her eldest sister was a professional artist who went to Liverpool Art college with John Lennon and has painted for the Queen and her niece designs textiles in London. Sally's creativity is in jewellery, using many forms of media and semi precious stones. Apart from a couple of ever popular designs, all her pieces are unique and never repeated and she is constantly looking for new and interesting media from across the world to inspire her designs. Blending and using colour and texture is Sally's strength and she is rarely seen without a camera to record images to help with that. Textiles also feature in Sally's creative catalogue, with wall hangings and rugs using anything from torn up sheets to cut up jumpers, wool, ribbon and beads - of course! Sally sells most of her work in galleries across Cumbria, but a few make it onto her website along with her other passion, vintage jewellery.
