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.

Just spotted I've featured on another blog!

I get so excited to hear that customers like my work. I've just spotted that I've been featured on Jolicious' blog.

I took part in the Get Eurofied sample box, sending in lots of my little sea glass pendants and Jo bought one.

The idea with sample boxes is that sellers send small samples of their work, people buy the boxes and if they like what they sampled, they can buy more products direct from the seller. I think it's an idea that's slow to catch on in the UK but big in the US and elsewhere.

I'd love to hear from other people who received one of my pendants in their box, I've taken part in a few. Did you like the pendant? Would you buy more of my work as a result of receiving this sample? This will help me work out whether sample boxes are an effective way of marketing my work.

The next Get Eurofied sample box goes on sale on 1 April so follow the link although I'm not taking part in this one. There are sure to be lots of lovely things for you to try.
