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.

And this weekend?

We'll be at Somerset Hall in Portishead on Saturday from 9.30am to 5pm. It is in the small shopping precinct at the end of the High Street, nearest to Cabstand and Waitrose. The band were named after the town, not the town named after the band before you ask.

Sunday sees us at the Whitminster Inn, on the A38 near to Gloucester. It's just off junction 13 on the M5 so convenient to get to. this fair is open from 10am to 4.30pm.

Brave the elements, we are going to, and come to see us!
