Stoned Affection
Jewellery, Accessories, Keepsakes & Mounts


Stoned Affection is a small, quirky shop run from home in Kettering by Susan Askew. She works with beautiful insects, bones and many other natural materials - taking inspiration from nature to create and source weird and wonderful jewellery, accessories and homeware.

Wendy Casson
Mixed Media Bird Studies


I was born in Yorkshire and attended Hull College of Arts and Crafts, then became a prime head teacher. I taught in Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire, Northamptonshire and Nigeria.

I enjoy working in mixed media and am currently producing studies of birds, using watercolour etching and ceramic techniques.
