Hi, I'm Melanie, a keen crafter who runs Metallix — a pewter embossing studio in the trendy quarters of Balsall Heath, Birmingham!
In the studio, I create hand embossed pewter items such as journals, keepsake boxes and original mixed media canvases. I love to draw my inspiration from architecture and sculptural forms and work from photographs that I have taken on my travels.
Come and discover embossing with me!
