About Me

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.

There's a moose loose about this hoose!

and I think this little darling is responsible. Yesterday I came home to several feathers in the hall but nothing feathered obviously around. Today he's walking around nonchalantly trying to pretend he's not really looking under the shoe rack in the hall to see where something has gone. I bet it's a mouse, he knows how I hate them!

In fairness, he rarely catches anything and even less brings them in - last time I screamed the place down and he got the hint. Perhaps he has a short memory.

Don't forget there are a couple more days left to enter my blog give-away for a sea glass pendant. Just let me know 4 little pieces of information so I can reconsider where I sell my jewellery and textiles.

Good luck!
