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.

Shop Handmade gift boxes - now on sale

I've contributed to ShopHandmade's gift boxes, giving my sea glass pendants, ideal for adding to your favourite chain, ribbon or just giving as a gift. All together 27 designers have contributed to these boxes, which are better than the traditional 'sample' box in that you get full sized products but as a huge discount off the normal price.

There are currentrly 15 unique and limited boxes. You can see these on Shophandmade's website
so you can see what you are getting before purchase. You can then buy them from Shophandmade's Folksy shop. I understand they will also be available from the Oxford Handm@de fair on 29 November.

I'm off to browse those gorgeous boxes, so prettily presented. There are only 15 and they are sure to be snapped up soon!
