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.

New Etsy shop - it's BlueBoxStudioToo!

After much soul searching I have decided to open a second Etsy shop for my supplies, destash, unwanted findings, tools etc because I think it will give a more streamlined appearance to my main Etsy shop.

Currently listed are some fabrics and cufflink blanks but shortly to come are some jewellery tools I no longer use and some spare silver findings. As supply items expire in my main shop they will (possibly) be relisted in my supplies shop so it will a little while before I get both shops exactly as I want.

When I get time I have a large box of sea glass, recently collected but yet to be sorted so there will be some goodies from that for sale too.

There'll be the same great service as currently offered to Etsy and Folksy customers, but now in another place.

If there is something you are specifically looking for (within the range of items I sell) get in touch, I may well have it lurking at the back of a cupboard, waiting to be listed and loved again.

For sea glass jewellery and accessories, silk & velvet scarves and accessories visit http://blueboxstudio.etsy.com and http://blueboxstudio.folksy.com.

For jewellery supplies, fabric supplies, tools and general destash visit http://blueboxstudiotoo.etsy.com.

I look forward to seeing you there.
