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.

OK, here they are...

Now available direct from Blue Box Studio are gorgeous jade and purple cuff links, ideal for jazzing up a shirt or blouse

also available in purple and pink

as well as muted shades of green, red and yellow.

Brooches in darker shades of green, brown and blue or pink, purple, blue and turquoise , ideal for fastening scarves, embellishing bags

or adding pizazz to a jacket or coat.

All of these are handmade in my North Somerset studio from shibori dyed silk and my own hand blended dyes. Because of the technique, no 2 pieces of silk will be identical and each brooch or pair of cufflinks will be a little individual and original work of art.

Ideal for all occasions, these come gift boxed, ready for giving. I currently have these at a sale price starting £4.50 + P&P. Don't forget Mothers' Day is on 14th March and Father's Day is 20 June in the UK (other countries may vary) .
