About Me

My photo
North Somerset, United Kingdom
My parents were worried when I ran around with scissors – now I play with fire and (intentionally) break glass! Based in the beautiful South West of England, close to the sea and often the scene of beautiful sunsets, I am inspired by the countryside around. Working with sea glass collected from remote beaches, soda lime glass from Murano, Italy, Europe, USA and beyond, I create artisan beads, for use in my own jewellery or for you to enjoy in your own creations. But I couldn’t stop there; continuing the theme from round rods to flat sheets, mostly from the USA, I break large sheets of transparent, opaque, multi-coloured and dichroic glass into much smaller pieces to make a kiln-formed range of bright, colourful jewellery and home decoration. Each piece I make is individually designed around the shape, size and beauty of the materials and intended to be unique, wearable, usable and affordable. All my glass work is kiln annealed for strength and durability and designed to give pleasure for years to come.

Little things please little minds ....

and I'm easily pleased. I came across the little the little goldfish when I was searching for blog related things. I can't have goldfish in my garden pond, my cats will think they are a game with a tasty reward, so this is the next best thing!

These gold fish will follow your mouse around the 'pond' and if you click in the pond, it releases food which they'll head straight for.

I was going to have more fish and change their colour but that just generated an error message so I've gone for the default. I know my technical limitations. When I've had another play I may increase my fish stocks!

Go on, play, you know you want to.


  1. That is the coolest thing! It's fun feeding those fish! Thanks for visiting my blog and being an angel!
    Peace & Love

  2. Thanks. I thought the fish would amuse.
