Unique creatures inspired by various events during the past year.
Created by hand, using buttons, beads and lots of imagination!

I would like to share what I have been creating during Lockdown.

I have a massive collection of recycled buttons and beads I have amassed over many years, that I keep in my shed (The Krafty Kabin!).

I was Facetiming my two grandsons whilst in my Kabin at the start of Lockdown. They asked me if I would try to make a giraffe out of the buttons and beads. George the Giraffe was ‘born’ on March the 24th 2020. He proved to be a great success with them, and they then began requesting a different animal to show them every morning over Facetime. So I decided to create…

The Lockdown Zoo

On the Anniversary of creating George the Giraffe, I will have made over 200 different animals, birds, insects, mythological creatures, famous characters and jurassic dinosaurs! Hopefully, soon I will be able to display them somewhere so people can see them in ‘the flesh’, but meanwhile I have put this site together so that you can have a look at them. 

If you would like to commission me to create an animal/character/pet of your choice,
please contact me for more information and costings of individual creations.
