Candle science and the ups and downs of running a handmade business with Krista Mansfield | Cocktails & Chat ep3
Reading Time: 3 minutes Krista of Crystabelles and I had a lovely chat about all things candles, business, community, and a little bit about weddings! She makes exquisitely scented luxury soy wax candles with crystals. She carefully matches each scent to a crystal so they work together in perfect harmony.
Reading Time: 2 minutes Watch the Christmas episode of my new fortnightly Instagram Live podcast series! Christmas is all about family, so I chatted with my husband Chris, Technomage and hobby woodworker, about business, supporting someone in business, making, and Christmas over some favourite beverages. We both asked each other questions, so you get to know me a little in this episode, too.
Reading Time: 3 minutes Join Tori Brewster, The Diaper Cake Diva, Niki Swinson, The Sweary Crystal Lady, and me for the first episode of Cocktails & Chat, a live podcast designed to promote community in the UK maker sector.

What my clients say
I worked with Sara-Jayne for several months on a project for a charity, and I was extremely impressed both by her technical skills, and by her ability to understand the issues behind a question. Several times, I asked her if A or B might be possible, and I always received really helpful, insightful responses, which often went beyond the original question and showed deep understanding of what was actually needed. I have absolutely no reservations in recommending Sara-Jayne – she is brilliant.
I have worked with Sara-Jayne for a few years & she is an amazing supportive person who supported me so patiently in our previous roles. I continually contacted Sara-Jayne requesting support and she was very efficient and effective in her support and an amazing personality. Sara-Jayne is very approachable and nothing was too much of a problem. Thanks for everything, Wayne
I worked with Sara-Jayne for over a year with a small charity with which I had been involved for over 6 years, to say she brought clarity and calmness to the mess they were in is a massive understatement. Sara-Jayne was always available to help and made sure everything made sense. Sara-Jayne implemented new ways to get important information in like invoices, she simplified a very outdated and time-consuming process that was in place before she set her genius to work on it. Sara-Jayne is one of the most professional and understanding people I have worked with. I have worked as a counsellor for over 13 years so I can recognise an empathetic and genuine person when I meet one and Sara-Jayne is certainly this and much more. I wholeheartedly recommend her work and I look forward to any future contact with Sara-Jayne, if I need her services in the future I will definitely be contacting her to put her particular brand of knowledge, understanding and empathy into action for me.
Sara-Jayne is impressively competent and professional. She takes the time to explain your options and will organise your books like a dream. Invaluable. Can’t recommend enough.
I worked with Sara-Jayne on creating new initiatives for improving the on-line structure of a charity organisation. I’ve been more than impressed by her ability to quickly understand a problem and create easily achievable answers. She is approachable at any stage of the design process, quickly producing prototypes which are close or ready for production.
