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.

Off on my travels again

Just a quick reminder that I will be at fairs in the Guildhall, Market Square in Salisbury tomorrow, Saturday 24 October and at Grittleton House near Chippenham on Sunday. Details of these venues is here.

My on-line shops will close this evening and re-open by Monday morning as I will be taking some of the stock from my shops to the fairs and I don't want the confusion or disappointment of selling it in 2 places at once.

If you purchase from me at these fairs, and mention you read about them on my blog, I'll pop an extra little something in your bag as a thank you for battling through the wind and rain that are promised for this weekend.

If you are no where near these venues, I'm in Yeovil Sunday week. More of that later.
