Gumec Crafts design and make beautiful upcycled bottles, candle bottles and jars, as gifts for your friends and Family to enjoy.
Hello, my name is Gumec and I am the owner of Gumec Crafts.
Gumec Crafts is a new company that designs and makes unique, decorative bottles, candle bottle holders and jars using upcycled Glass materials, along with candle plates.
Before I go into more detail about my company and what I do, please allow me to tell you about me a little bit more and my journey…
I am a Radiotherapy Physicist, I have a BSc in Physics Engineering, MSc in Medical Physics and are about to graduate to obtain my PhD in Proton Therapy Dosimetry. I used to teach Physics and Mathematics in Turkey for Senior School age students and owned my own retail outlet for 11 years selling Hosiery and Lingerie. In 2015 I came to the UK to complete my studies at UCL, to obtain my Doctorate. I was also lucky enough to meet my wonderful Husband, who has been my rock through my recent difficult times and has supported me so much. The difficult times I mention are a result of a very unfortunate occurrence at work, back in January 2022...
At the time I was a Customer Ambassador for a company, just trying to help my Husband financially, while completing my PhD. Unfortunately, through lack of adequate company PPE being provided to me, I cut my finger whilst working on one of their client’s machines. Being Diabetic, this injury got infected and unfortunately resulted in the top half of my right index finger being amputated. As you can imagine, after five surgeries plus recovery time Etc and all the emotional and mental consequences of such a dramatic life changing experience for me, I never returned to my role at that company.
I am however a very strong willed positive Women, who is very ambitious and who looks to the future. So after a few months of getting used to my disability, mentally, physically and emotionally, I knew I had to push myself once more and this is why I started to make stuff from home and it was only through people’s reactions to what I made, that I realised, it was in fact, quite nice and maybe people would enjoy it and like it enough to want to treat their friends and Family and get something for them as a gift.
So please have a look around my products, some are seasonal, some are all year round, but all of them will make any table, dresser or mantelpiece look beautiful, as they are very attractive to look at and made from the heart.
Thank you so much for listening and taking the time to read this and hope to you see soon at one of the many Craft Fairs I attend.
