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.

Some time ago, Evie of Milomade asked me if I would like to answer 20 questions for a blog interview. Delighted to be asked, I racked my brains for something interesting to say about myself. Evie 's article is now published on her blog. I hope you find it interesting - there is a rare photo of the inside of one of my 2 workshops, sorry but it never looks very tidy as it is a working space and in constant use. Thank you Evie for the great article.

Evie has a beautiful shop on Folksy, and also sells through her own website. Check out her shops and perhaps start your Christmas shopping early with original gifts.
