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.

UK last posting dates for Christmas

I haven't a picture of a red Royal Mail van, so here's a picture of a red boat!

Royal Mail have just mailed me details of Christmas last posting dates so I thought I'd mention them here.

The last day for 2nd class mail is 18 December, 1st class is 21 December.

Special Delivery, guaranteed next day delivery or your money back is available until 23 December.

International Airmail last posting dates start from 4 December, so I'd better get a move on and post my sister's present to Australia!

Airmail dates are

Friday 4th December
South & Central America, Caribbean, Africa, Middle East, Far East, Asia, New Zealand
and Australia

Thursday 10th December
Japan, USA, Canada, and Eastern Europe

Friday 11th December
Western Europe

There will not be deliveries from December 25 - 28 but there will be extra deliveries in the week running up to Christmas, both evenings and on Sunday 20 December.

And, for heaven's sake, this information all came wrapped up in my first Christmas card (from Royal Mail).

Further details are available from the Royal Mail website and there's a handy leaflet to download and keep by your desk.
