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.

Oh I do love to be beside the sea side

This weekend sees us at the Winter Gardens in Weston-super-Mare. Right on the sea front and next to the shopping mall and high street, this is a convenient venue to come and get your quality hand made Christmas presents.

There is a cafe on-site for a warming lunch, hot chocolate, coffee and more. I was brought up by my mum's side of the family, keen shoppers, to buy something then have a cup of coffee to stop and look at your latest purchase before going off for the next item. As a result I love shopping and cakes (which is a little apparent when you see me).

There's easy parking around the venue in nearby multi-storey and open air car parks.

Lots of lovely bracing walks along the sea front and beyond. Weston even has donkeys on the beach although I can't guarantee they'll be there when you visit!

If you read this and then visit and purchase from me at the Weston fair this weekend, just mention you've read my blog and I'll add an early Christmas present to your bag (of my choosing, at my discretion and purchase necessary).

Even if you don't want to buy from me, do come over and say hello.
