About Me

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.

Comfortable? Really?!

Charlie must have been a dormouse in a former life. However much space he has to sleep in, he is often curled into a tight ball.

But is sleeping with your front paw stretched beneath you and poking out at the back really comfortable?

He also sleeps on our laps, nay, legs, with his legs astride ours, and is therefore known as Splat the cat (as well as a few other choice names at times), looking as though he has crash landed from a great height.
