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.

First craft fair of the year!

This Saturday, 4th April 2009, sees us at the first craft fair of the year. We'll be exhibiting with Kevin Murphy Fairs in the Guildhall, Salisbury from 9.30am to 5pm. The Guildhall is in the Market Square, adjoining the Saturday market.



This is the first March fair we've done in a long time so we hope it will be a success. It is also the first time we've exhibited in Salisbury for a number of years, mainly due to the distance from Clevedon!



We will be selling a wider range of items than available in my on-line shops so if you are in the town, do come along and say 'Hi!'.

  3. Thank you Nifty, just a small part of our display! I usually have between 8 and 12 ft of space. I think part of our success is the fact that we look professional, matching boxes, large acrylic stands etc. I had the acrylic cubes made to measure so I can vary the display. They double as storage between shows and as a light box when needed.
