Eyup, I'm Jacqui and I am the creative behind BytheCrookofmyHook.
BytheCrookofmyHook is where you'll find "touch of Lore, pinch of Witchy and a dash of Magic."
Recently I've shaken things up here, and as well as magical crochet art to wear and for the home, I now also offer witchy hand painted, air dried clay creations and other artwork.
Why the change?
I desired to expand my creative endeavours, and the urge to paint and work with clay again was a siren song.
Working the clay with my hands, kneading, shaping and then holding my breath as it dries in case the clay warps, the prepping the pieces and painting. The alchemy of the pieces becoming their best selves once the varnish is applied - the colours become more vibrant and luminous Oh, it's so magical.
Why do I create?
I create to bring magic and love into my customers homes.
I create so for those who like their witchiness and magic colourful and whimsical.
I create for the witch inside of us all.
I create for the connections it brings.
I create because this is my passion, my magic.
