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.

I've been given a Sunshine Award!

This is so exciting. I've never been given an award before and for ages I have been thinking I am blogging to myself. Now I have been given the Sunshine award by Faeryatrix who also has a shop on Folksy. Thank you, it has really made my day!

As a condition of accepting this award I must nominate 12 bloggers whose positivity and creativity inspires others in the blogging world. I will do that over the next couple of days; it gives me an excuse to be reading lots of blogs.
