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.

Who sells these in the UK?

Another last minute panic. I've almost sold out of my lovely sea glass bottle stoppers. I get the metal parts from the US and think they are made by Aanraku but I don't think I can get more in time for my big fair the weekend after next. So I'm panicking.

Does anyone know if you can get these in the UK? I can get them much quicker if I can buy in the UK.

They are not the same as the wood turning versions that are available as those only have a short screw to screw into wood. The ones I want have a mandrel that can be unscrewed to add beads, glass, whatever. Perhaps they are in your glass work catalogue or in a wood turning catalogue?
